It was a rare and special occasion today at Grand Lodge, as two distinguished members were invested with the Grand Master's Order of Service to Masonry (OSM)🎖️
...Only a tiny handful of Freemasons hold the OSM at any one time, and its conferral for outstanding contributions to Freemasonry is one of the Craft's greatest honours.
Congratulations to Edward Arnold Ford (left) and Prof Aubrey Newman (right)! You can read their individual citations here:

The four PGM’s of Staffordshire, Shropshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire together with the MFest300 organising committee went to the Midlands Air Ambulance ...operations base at Strensham today and presented them with a cheque for £6,726, which was the “surplus” from MFest300. The MAA was chosen as the charity to receive this sum as it covers the four Masonic Provinces who took part in MFest 300. (Article courtesy of Ralph Howarth).
