David Greenwood, the Assistant Provincial Grand Master of Warwickshire, and two other Province members from Mike Hailwood Lodge No. 9839 visited the Provincial Office in Exeter. As part of their 2023 Festival they have embarked on a sponsored ride of 2,500 miles over 16 days to visit every one of the 44 mainland provinces (excluding Isle of Man, Guernsey and Jersey sadly).

Departing on Friday 25th March today they were heading to Taunton, Salisbury and Wimborne.

The most difficult bit? “Wales!.......big mileage and driving through snow!”

remarked Simon Bradley (PPGSuptWks).

Presenting £200 from the Provincial Grand Master's personal fund Peter Keaty remarked

“Great effort, pleased to help in a small way, keep safe”

as the bikers departed for Taunton.
