On Friday 6th October at the regular meeting of St. Lawrence Lodge No.9323 in Ashburton there was a buzz of anticipation just before they tyled.

The Lodge had not been honoured with so many special guests for many years. Present there was our own PGM RW. Bro Ian Kingsbury JP. accompanied by the PGM of Worcestershire RW. Bro Robert Christopher Vaughan along with 26 other guests from that province who visit a different province each year on the occasion of their annual vintage car rally.

After the numerous salutes which such an occasion demands W. Bro Terry Sloane gave a superb lecture on King Solomon, which was received with acclamation. The lodge was closed with due reverence before the members and their guests retired to the Lavender House Hotel where they sat down to an excellent festive board.

Everyone present said what a wonderful evening it had been before retiring to their beds.
