Welcome to Lodge Barns O'Clyde 1018

With pride, I become the fifth Master of our Lodge to welcome you all to our website, launched in October 2013.

I would like to thank the Past Masters and Brethren for having the confidence in me to be their choice to hold the high office of Right Worshipful Master. It’s indeed an honour and privilege and I will endeavour to carry out my duties to the best of my ability.

My Installation Ceremony was carried out by Past Master, Bro. Grant McGeachie and Past Master Bro. David Cairns, both very high respected Freemasons within the Craft for their excellent ritual work. The Ceremony was carried out to the highest standard, in a very dignified manner and they should be very proud of their achievement. I can’t praise them highly enough and I congratulate and thank them for making the evening very special for me and one I will always remember. I would also like to thank them and the many other Members of 1018 for giving me so much advice and encouragement over the years.

My choice of Depute Master was an easy one, with P.M Bro. Alistair Scott introducing me into Freemasonry as my Proposer in 2011.

I extend a warm welcome to all the visiting Brethren to continue to attend Barns o’Clyde. I am looking forward to seeing you over the next year and to your company and assure you that your continued support which is much appreciated. I will endeavour to visit as many of your Lodges as is possible.

Finally, to all my family and friends, I want you to know that your encouragement and support over the years, but more especially over this last year; and your kind Installation gifts, are much appreciated.
