Statement from Provincial Grand Lodge and Provincial Grand Chapter

Monday 26th November 2018 – Vanessa Holt to retire as Private Secretary

Today, Ms Vanessa Holt met with the Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master and the Most Excellent Grand Superintendent, to inform that she will be retiring on 31st December 2018, after having served the Province loyally for some 27 years.

“Vanessa’s vast experience and expertise has served this Province without interruption since 1991 – and her support and advice for Provincial Grand Secretaries together with the past and current Executive has been unswerving. We know her calm and good-humoured presence will be sorely missed by us all, particularly by the Executive, Secretariat and active Provincial Officers. We are sure that the whole Province will wish to join us in wishing Vanessa a long, healthy and happy retirement.”
