But of course, in true 482 fashion, a last minute addition saw Bro. Gordon Yeoman P.M. step in to present the South East Corner and Tools. Bro. Gordon is also I.P.M. of the Celtic Lodge of Edinburgh & Leith 291, in the province of Edinburgh.
Although there are many similarities in the way Lodges work their degrees, it's amazing how easily the slightest of differences have the potential to cause a hiccup!!
At the end of the day though the I.P.M’s did a great job and there was a good turnout of brethren on the night to lend their support.
In handing back the gavel to the R.W.M., Bro. Murrie thanked Bro. Les for allowing him to once again take the chair in their Mother Lodge. He also offered his sincere thanks to all the I.P.M’s for their help - and patience - leading up to the night and his thanks also went to Bro. Andrew Hogg M.M. of Lodge Kirkliston Maitland for stepping in as our candidate.
The R.W.M. complimented the Immediate Past Masters on their working of the Fellowcraft Degree adding that it was always good to experience something a bit different.
