No institution can boast a more solid foundation than that on which Freemasonry rests - the practice of every moral and social virtue!
Provincial Grand Mentor
Mentors Newsletter - Summer 2015
It was indeed a pleasure to have been appointed as the Provincial Grand Mentor in 2008 and invested as such in 2009. I deem the appointment an honour and to have been the first person in the Province of North Wales to carry out this important role: it has been an enjoyable journey.
Since the MW The Pro Grand Master The Most Hon. The Marques of Northampton drew attention, on the 14th March 2007, that too many of our newest Brethren leave the Craft within five years of being Initiated that he suggested a Mentoring scheme be introduced to try and stop the flow of Brethren resigning from their Lodges.
I have had the pleasure of attending all of the Mentoring Seminars held at Grand Lodge, Great Queen Street London. It is pleasing to see the Grand Secretary V.W. Bro Nigel Brown present at all the meetings which gives great encouragement to everyone present. Also I have been able to attend the regional Seminars in places such as Manchester, Bristol and Cardiff which were equally encouraging and educational.
I have also visited 85% of the Lodges in the Province of North Wales and I thank everyone for the welcome extended to me during my visits. The first visit being to Bistre Lodge No 8883 in February 2009 and the last visit was to Sant Myllin Lodge No 6536 in May 2015.
I have therefore travelled widely and extensively from North to South and from West to East within this Geographically large Province.
W. Bro Eric Glynne Knowles PAGDC has been appointed to succeed me as the Provincial Grand Mentor and I wish him well whilst he undertakes this important office and that he will find the same warmth and hospitality that I did from the members of this Province whilst carrying out his duty.
