The MW Grand Master writes:
I had the pleasure of investing our current Assistant Grand Master, RW Bro Derek N Broderick, GCh, GCAG along with the Deputy Grand Master RW Bro Roy W Leavers, CofM, GCh, GCAG and on 27 th October 2018. This represented an important time in the Orders and the establishment of a new executive team.
Since his appointment, RW Bro Derek has served both me and the Order with dignity, tact, diplomacy, and dedication as Assistant Grand Master. His wise counsel has been always been sought and appreciated. However, in accordance with his wishes, I have accepted his resignation from the office of Assistant Grand Master. Whilst he will be greatly missed, he will continue in active office and return to his role as Grand Treasurer.
In consequence of the resignation, I am today pleased to announce that RW Bro Charles J Aspinell, SGW, KAG will be the new Assistant Grand Master, effective Saturday 24 th October 2020. RW Bro Charles is a well-respected, experienced freemason who brings with him much enthusiasm and knowledge. I am confident that Charles will assist me in ensuring that the Masonic Order of Athelstan continues to flourish, and I look forward to working with him over the coming years.
