5 Provincial Grand Masters of West Yorkshire
At the Annual Provincial Meeting, held at Bradford Grammar School on 6th April 2013, the Province was fortunate to have in attendance all four of our Past Provincial Grand Masters. The Provincial Grand Master was delighted to welcome them to the meeting on behalf of all the Brethren present and said that he would certainly not be short of advice from the podium on this occasion !
Together with our current Provincial Grand Master, R.W.Bro. James Steggles, their attendance at the Meeting represented the last 24 years of leadership of our Order in West Yorkshire. All are still extremely active in the Province, are much loved by all the Brethren and we are justly very proud of them.
