At its regular meeting in Fishguard on 14th December 2022, the Worshipful Master of Strumble Lodge No 4351, W Bro Colin Hancock (right), formally received the Certificate of Amalgamation of Strumble and Kemes Lodges from W Bro Stephen Roscoe (left), the final Worshipful Master of Kemes Lodge. The certificate is accompanied by the cancelled Warrant of Kemes Lodge, both of which will be displayed in the Temple, and the presentation was made underneath the banners of the two Lodges.
The final meeting of Kemes Lodge took place on Friday 17th January 2020. The Amalgamation Certificate has only recently been received from the United Grand Lodge of England, but it was acknowledged to have been a successful first three years of amalgamation. The Worshipful Master of Strumble Lodge immediately passed the certificate back to W Bro Stephen Roscoe, as he is currently the Assistant Secretary of Strumble Lodge!
