Assistant Provincial Grand Master

Henry Hobson

Most Brethren in the Province will know Henry, as for many years he was the Chairman of the Communications Committee and for a long time one of the Provincial photographers attending meetings and delegations, taking pictures at the end of proceedings for inclusion in the website and also the Year Book.

It was a role that Henry took on enthusiastically, and not surprisingly really considering his involvement with Snappy Snaps – the high street photographic printing specialists.

His enthusiasm is no less diminished when it comes to support for the Mark Province of London. Cliff has been a keen member of Provincial Delegations since his first Appointment as PPAGDC and especially enjoyed being a member of the Full Team Visits, first as ProvSD and subsequently as ProvGMO.

Cliff works behind the scenes in relation to Provincial Events and currently devotes a fair amount of his time to the task of Provincial WebMaster and email Tsar.

Jerry Gangadeen

V.W.Bro. Jerry Gangadeen says he was taken aback when the Provincial Grand Master told him that it was his intention to make him an Assistant Provincial Grand Master for the Province of London.

A keen golfer, he and the PGM were both playing in a tournament at the time and V.W.Bro. Jeremiah Daniel, to give him his full forenames, now breaking into a broad smile, says he realised instantly what a great honour it is to be so chosen.
