Brethren, it was but a year ago that I was installed as Provincial Grand Master. The twelve months have flown past, but it has been a most memorable and enjoyable year.
As this is my first proper address to Provincial Grand Lodge, I have limited myself to four topics this morning. Each one is quite long, but there are only four of them.
The first is a review of the last 12 months, reflecting on our ambitions at the start of the year, and to comment on the outcomes. We have launched a number of initiatives this year with the specific intention of enriching the experience of Masons in Bristol.
