Both of the current District Wardens are members of the same craft lodge – Robert Burns No 999 which meets at Salford Masonic Hall in the province of East Lancashire.
District Grand Junior Warden, Mike Green had been master of Robert Burns for three years owing to the suspension during the covid outbreak. So he was very keen to install his successor who just happens to be the District Senior Warden, Allan Shields.
All of this happened in front of our Deputy District Grand Prefect, Peter Hegarty who was in attendance at the meeting in his capacity as Salford District Chairman.
Allan was installed in fine style , the Allied theme extends further as the District Grand Treasurer, Jeff Huddart is also a member of the lodge and was invested as the lodge Junior Deacon later in the ceremony.
Plenty of work to do – Allan will have a candidate to initiate in October!
