On 6th April after a history making three years in the chair W. Bro. Paul Beatty invested W. Bro. Les Dacombe into the chair of King Solomon in a superb manner, the presiding officer, who thoroughly enjoyed the day was W. Bro. Peter Keaty who was accompanied by V. W. Bro. Chris Pengelly and W. Bro. Ian Rooke.


60 Brethren, I believe another record since the return to meetings post COVID, sat down to a superb 6 course festive board where both wine and port were found in plenty.

What a great start to what promises to be a memorable year for St. Michaels, starting with a “Family Affair” at the Langstone Cliff Hotel on Sunday 22nd May where Les and his Wife Penny are holding a joint lunch as she is also in the chair of her lodge and in fact outranks Les as she is a Grand Officer.
