On 13th March 2017, at Mark Masons’ Hall, London, The Goose & Gridiron Council No.275 was consecrated by the Grand Master M.W. Bro. Thomas Firth Jackson and a full team of Grand Officers. Events started at 11am and the ceremony was conducted in a most excellent way by the Grand Officers and Petitioners. After R.W. Bro. Colin Woodcock - our District Grand Prefect - was installed as the first Worshipful Master, the new Council was closed and 80 of the 90 brethren attending were treated to a fabulous Carvery luncheon where the Grand Master was presented with a wonderful stainless steel Gridiron, designed and manufactured for this very special occasion.
The Goose & Gridiron is the first new Council for the District of London since 2006, and will meet on Saturdays to address the demand of AMD members unable to commit to weekday meetings.
