August 26, 2018 General, PGM
On Sunday 26th August W.Bro. Roger Littlewood once again arranged for a BBQ to be held at his house on Anglesey.
The weather was not as good as in recent years but that did not spoil the enjoyment of those who attended.
The event raised £870 by way of raffles, a quiz (The PGM’s team were runners up, some improvement on their past performance) and donations, this to be shared equally amongst St. Seiriol Mark, St. Eilian Mark and St. Eilian RAM Lodges.
W.Bro. Brian Sion Jones (Dixie Rebel) provided the entertainment.
August 17, 2018 Benevolent Fund, PGM
In January 2016 the Mark Benevolent Fund received an application for Funding from Northumbria Blood Bikes and so started a partnership which resulted in the Mark Benevolent Fund sponsoring, so far, 16 Blood Bikes and 10 Blood Cars.
The Blood Bikes provide out of hours transportation services for local NHS in the movement of blood and human tissue, they do this free of charge thus reducing the strain on the NHS.
On the 14th of August 2018, the R.W. Provincial Grand Master hosted the annual Grand Officers Luncheon at Elwy Hall, Rhyl.

On this occasion he also invited the new Provincial Grand Director of Ceremonies to speak about the Ritual and the new Provincial Deputy Grand Secretary to speak about the new Provincial website.
