Welcome to Lodge Barns O'Clyde 1018

It is with great humility, I am honoured to be installed as Master of this fine old Lodge.

I would like to thank the Past Masters and Brethren for having the confidence in me to elect me to this Office. It is indeed a privilege and I will endeavour to carry out my duties to the best of my ability.

My Installation Ceremony was carried out by Past Masters, Bro. Kenneth J.P. Currie and Bro. Andrew Clark in a very sincere and dignified manner.

I would also like thank all the Brethren of the Lodge for their support and guidance on my journey through Freemasonry.

I extend a warm welcome to all visiting Brethren to attend Lodge Barns o’Clyde. I am looking forward to meeting old friends and making new ones, and, to that end, I will also endeavour to visit as many Lodges as possible during my term in Office.
