On Monday 1st October whilst holidaying in Spain in the Benissa region close to the costal town of Moraira, our very own W Bro Ken Cownden was very pleased and honoured to be invited to a Lodge meeting of the Armonia de Ifach Lodge No 46 in the Province de Valencia, Gran Logia de Espana for their Installation meeting.

He went in company with W Bro Graham Dickerson PAGDC (Essex), but being away from England, he wore his French Regalia and represented the Le Touquet Loge No.89 and Grand Loge Nationale Francais.

They were both well greeted and the ceremony was most enjoyable, but “different” albeit aligned to Emulation and conducted in English.

Some photographs were taken and good wishes from their WM and Brethren were offered to them for their respective Lodges. Of interest, they meet 11 times a year on the first Monday of the month excepting January.

The festive Board was a fine and enjoyable affair with much convivial banter and a plentiful supply of Spanish Vino.
