An announcement from the Provincial Grand Master

VWBro Peter Sands

After five years of outstanding service as Deputy Provincial Grand Master of the Province of Berkshire and also as Chairman of the Berkshire Festival 2023, VW Bro Peter Sands PGSwdB has asked that he be permitted to retire at the Annual Meeting of Provincial Grand Lodge in September. It is with a heavy heart that I am honour bound to accede to his request. Whilst I will have at least two significant opportunities to acknowledge VW Bro Peter’s unstinting devotion to the Province both in The Craft and Mark Masonry, I am making this announcement early so that, as he goes about his Provincial duties, individual members and lodges have sufficient time to show their appreciation.

WBro Mark Heppelthwaite

I am pleased to announce that, at the Annual Meeting, it is my intention to appoint W Bro Mark Heppelthwaite PAGStdB as my new Deputy Provincial Grand Master. W Bro Mark will be well known to most Berkshire Masons as a Deputy Provincial Grand Director of Ceremonies for six years and as the Managing Director of Sindlesham Court (Trading) Ltd. Like VW Bro Peter, I am sure that he will serve the Province extremely well and that you will wish to join with me in wishing him every success in his new preferment.

Anthony C Howlett-Bolton OBE
Provincial Grand Master
