Castle Grove Masonic Hall in Headingley, Leeds was fully packed on Saturday, 26 October to support the Installation of R.E.Kt. Hearl Roger Lenton (formerly Deputy-in-charge) as the new Provincial Prior for the Province of West Yorkshire.
The twenty-four Preceptories of the Povince proudly paraded their respective banners (several representing Preceptories over two-hundred years old!) before the Grand Master, who then went on to Install R.E.Kt. Lenton as the Provincial Prior of West Yorkshire. The new Provincial Prior in turn Installed V.E.Kt. George Antony Ryder Wilkinson to be his Provincial Sub-Prior. It was a wonderful meeting followed by excellent festivities in a warm atmosphere.
