It is with great sorrow that we announce the sudden death of R.Ill.Comp. Timothy Hancock, our District Grand Master. Tim suffered a heart attack at his home on the evening of Saturday, 6th January.

This is a preliminary message to make sure that you are all aware. More details will follow as information comes in.

R.Ill.Comp. Phillip Purves, P.G.Coun., is now Deputy District Grand Master In Charge. 

We are all in shock. Tim was a credit to the many Orders of Freemasonry in which he was a member and one of the nicest men we could ever hope to know. We will miss him dreadfully.

Sincerely and fraternally,

Malcolm Summers
