Bro. Yogesh Patel was Installed as 105th Master of the Wyggeston Lodge No.3448 at the Installation meeting held on Friday 18th November 2016 at Freemasons’ Hall, Leicester.
The lodge was extremely honoured to welcome W.Bro. Richard J Moore, Senior Grand Warden, accompanied by W.Bro. Peter Gibson-Leitch, Assistant Director of Ceremonies, as the representative of the Provincial Grand Master.
The Installing Master, WBro Paul L Bodycot, conducted the Installation ceremony with great sincerity after which WBro Thomas Bodycot addressed the Master.
The Master invested his Senior Warden, Bro Paul R Marvin, and Junior Warden, Bro John L Harvey, for the ensuing year who were addressed by WBro Robert J Hutchinson.
The Master also invested his remaining Officers including Bro Peter W Clarke, a Universities Scheme Initiate, as Secretary, Bro Robert J Hutchinson as Treasurer. WBro Peter RW Smith addressed the Brethren.
After the meeting the Brethren enjoyed a splendid four course Festive Board including mushroom soup, honey mustard glazed lamb noisettes, and fruit sorbet. In addition, Bro. Peter Clarke generously supplied Graham’s 20 year old Tawny Port as an accompaniment to the cheese and biscuits.
The lodge looks forward to another busy year ahead as the Universities Scheme lodge for the University of Leicester which already has planned a quadruple Initiation at the December meeting.
