November 8, 2023 Mark, PGM, Team Visits
The PGM accompanied by his Provincial Team visited St Eilian Lodge no 360 in Amlwch on the 8th of November.
The first part of the evening was dedicated to the Advancement of Bro. Graham Farrell, which was conducted in an excellent manner thanks to the hard work of all the Lodge Officers involved, and in particular the Worshipful Master, W.Bro. Arfon Morgan.
The Provincial Grand Master was then very pleased to present a 50th certificate to W.Bro. John Owens.
It is with a heavy heart that we have to inform you of the passing to Higher Service of W.Bro. Michael Pugh, P.A.G.D.C., Prov.G.Ch.Stwd.
Mike suffered a stroke at the weekend and passed away on the 17th of August in Walton Hospital.
He was a wonderful friend to many and his passing to Higher Service is great loss to Freemasonry.
On Wednesday 10th May at Elwy Hall in Rhyl, the RW Provincial Grand Master John Stanley Evans together with the Deputy PGM, Phil Edwards, and numerous others attended Eryri Mark Lodge No. 1973 Installation, to witness W Bro. Andy Chape being Installed as WM.

Below you will find the text of the address to the Brethren given by the Provincial Grand Master, R.W.Bro. John S. Evans, at the Virtual Provincial Grand Lodge held via Zoom on the 28th of November 2020. The meeting was attended by a large number of Brethren from across the Province. Also in attendance was R.W.Bro. Ryan Williams, Grand Secretary.
On the 17th of March 2020, the Provincial Grand Master issued the following statement:
The Grand Masters of the Orders administered from Mark Masons’ Hall, which includes the Mark and RAM, have jointly agreed an immediate General Suspension of all Masonic Activity for a period of four months.
A similar course of action is being taken by United Grand Lodge of England, the Ancient and Accepted Rite, as well as the Grand Lodge of Scotland.
I fully support this decision and let me say that I have been heartened by the manner in which you have all, particularly our Secretaries and Scribes, approached the uncertainty that we have faced over the past few weeks and days.
I am currently consulting with the members our Provincial Executive to formulate a plan that will ensure that you are all kept fully updated as to future developments, we will communicate this to you as soon as possible.
Please look after yourselves and your families Brethren, keep in touch with each other by phone or email.
Yours sincerely and fraternally,
R.W.Bro. Peter Talbot,
Provincial Grand Master for North Wales.
