District of London - London District Annual Meeting - 2018

Saturday 17 November marked the highlight of AMD London’s year – the Annual Meeting. The District Grand Prefect, RW Bro Colin Woodcock, kicked off the proceedings by processing into the Grand Temple to enthusiastic applause accompanied by his Officers of District Grand Council.

After the Council was opened, the District Grand Secretary then proceeded to call the roll of District Grand Officers, and reported that all the District's Councils were well represented at the meeting.

The District Grand Prefect then warmly welcomed all the official visitors, who were duly saluted.

The various reports were delivered, elections held and officers appointed and invested with both the District Grand Prefect and his Deputy spending a few minutes thanking each of those receiving preferment for their work in supporting the District.

RW Bro Colin Woodcock then proceeded to call off the Annual Meeting and Mr Aaron Hearne of Shelter was escorted into the Temple to receive a cheque for an incredible £12,000 – donated by Districts around England following the sale of the Allied Keep Calm mugs and in large part by the fund-raising efforts of the District of London.

Having effusively thanked the District Grand Prefect, Aaron proceeded to talk about the work of Shelter and how much of its efforts are directed at helping millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through advice, support and legal services. But perhaps more importantly, Shelter campaigns and lobbies to address the root causes of homelessness.

Having called on the Annual Meeting, District Grand Prefect then proceeded to deliver his address which can be read here: CLICK HERE

After the District Grand Lodge was closed, approximately 70 brethren attended an excellent Festive Board.

Special thanks must go to the District Secretariat and the Executive team for another superb Annual Meeting!

District of London - London District Annual Meeting - 2017

On the dot of 11.00 the first procession – the Past District Grand Prefects (the self-styled “decrepits”!) - entered the Grand Temple, followed shortly by RW Bro Colin Woodcock to enthusiastic applause accompanied by his Officers of District Grand Council.

After the Council was opened, the District Grand Secretary then proceeded to call the roll of District Grand Officers, and reported that every one of the District's Councils were represented at the meeting.

The District Grand Prefect then warmly welcomed all the official visitors, who were duly saluted.

The various reports were delivered, elections held and officers appointed and invested with both the District Grand Prefect and his Deputy spending a few minutes thanking each of those receiving preferment for their work in supporting the District.

Having welcomed the new members of the Allied Masonic Degrees, the District Grand Prefect then proceeded to deliver his address which can be read here.[http://www.amdlondon.org/index.php/news/latest/69-dgp-s-address-to-district-grand-council-18th-november-2017].

After the District Grand Lodge was closed, the brethren headed to the bar before going to the Festive Board. During the dinner, the Allied Keep Calm mugs in support of Shelter (which the DGP had announced in his address earlier) were snapped up by many of those present and raised £780. Coupled with the proceeds of an auction held at the Autumn Social Event, the total raised amounted to a terrific £885. A great start to an important AMD initiative being spearheaded by the London District.

Special thanks must go to the District Secretariat and the Executive team for another excellent Annual Meeting!

District of London - London District Annual Meeting - 2016

You could really feel the excitement building outside the Grand Temple in the minutes before the AGM started, and at 11:00 sharp it all began.
There was a warm London Allied welcome for the Past District Grand Prefects, our large number of distinguished visitors and, of course, for our very own District Grand Prefect.
After the meeting was opened, the Deputy Grand Master joined us for an AGM that was full of good humour and bonhomie, and all those brethren receiving first appointments or promotions were warmly applauded by those present.
During his address the District Grand Prefect personally welcomed those brethren who had joined London AMD since the last District meeting. You can read the text of the address here.
Following the meeting there was an excellent Festive Board, where the conviviality and friendliness that are hallmarks of Allied masonry in London were in much evidence.
