It was great to see some 30 Knights and their Ladies from Monmouth and South Wales attend the Knight Templar Cathedral Service in Lincoln in September.

Being the first time for more than eight years that a national service of this kind had been organised for the United Orders it was well supported and the cathedral was filled with colour and fervour.

On the evening before the service, a very happy celebration dinner was held at The Lincoln Hotel for members and their ladies from the province - and there are no prizes for guessing why the room in which it was held in is called the Elizabeth Room.
