Another Candidate for the Pride of Surrey Council

In January the Pride of Surrey Council No. 168 had another candidate for admission to the Degree of Select Master. Joining us and kindly acting as our Principal Conductor of the Work was R.Ill. Comp David Blackburn, our District Grand Master.

The Council was opened by the Acting T.I.M. Ill.Comp. David Thompson, District Grand Principal Conductor of the Work, who welcomed everyone, especially our guests.

The main item on the agenda was to ballot for Bro. William Martyn Jowett a member of Richmond Lodge of Mark Master Masons. This proved in his favour and Ill.Comp. David Thompson invited Ill.Comp. Chris Eley to take the Chair to conduct the Ceremony of a Select Master.

The ceremony of Select Master was undertaken by Ill.Comp. Chris Eley, assisted by Ill.Comp. David Thompson who presented the history of the Degree. Comp. Bill was then welcomed into the Council by Ill. Comp. Chris and R.Ill. Comp David Blackburn, our District Grand Master.
