On the 20th of July the District Grand Prefect, R. W. Bro Peter Brockbank, The District Grand Treasurer W. Bro Phil Clare, The District Grand Secretary W. Bro Derek Wilkins and the District Grand Director of Ceremonies W. Bro Geoff Whale travelled coast bound to sunny Folkestone. Not to enjoy the sandy beach or a paddle in the sea but to attend a meeting at the home of the Deputy District Grand Prefect W. Bro. Brian Ward.

AMD Executive Travel to Sunny Folkestone The agenda for the day was wide ranging and included such topics such as organising the district diary, the website, a potential social event for 2023 and the implementation of other new initiatives for the district.

Thankfully during those discussions refreshments were organised and served by Brian’s wife Toni who ensured teas, coffees, cold drinks and nibbles were made available in copious quantities whilst the agenda was attended to. After three hours of discussion and deliberation the meeting was brought to a close by District Grand Prefect before consuming his first Guinness of the day.

There then followed a wonderful lunch prepared by Toni consisting of individual chorizo tarts accompanied by onion marmalade (all homemade) closely followed by baked salmon with a mustard crumb topping accompanied by a selection of seasonal vegetables. This was followed by homemade lemon and lime posset or tiramisu and finally a selection of cheese and biscuits. All washed down with copious quantities of wine, port and brandy except for W. Bro Phil who was the nominated driver for the day and responsible for ensuring everyone was returned home safely.

Before leaving for home the District Grand Prefect, thanked Toni on behalf of everyone for her warm hospitality and her lovely food and said he very much looked forward to the next executive meeting in sunny Folkestone.
