The first meeting of the newly installed Worshipful Master of Semaphore Lodge, WBro. Gordon Williams MSA, started with an unusual number of knocks from a Gavel that seems to have had a mind of its own. WBro. Williams' note to self “breathe during the Meeting and I must allow the Officers to do their piece before carrying on”. Wording on a Summons can be very binding to Lodge procedures - always choose the wording carefully to allow the Lodge Ceremony to proceed with minimum delay".

The Brethren in all Masonic Orders lament the falling numbers in Membership, which forces many Lodges to hand in their Warrants or, as some have done, hold Combined Meetings with other Lodges. This is exactly what Sir Samuel Way Mark Lodge No. 46 and Witton Mark Lodge No. 55 have done. Both Lodges have benefitted as a result.
