Whilst continuing in his role as Provincial Charity Steward David will Chair a Committee drawn from the Somerset Provincial Masonic Charity, our Almoners, the Friendship Association and the provision of support to our Masonic Care Home at Cadogan Court, Exeter.
The PGM is also keen to adopt a structure that provides opportunity to identify future leaders and embrace a culture of inclusion with our Companions in the Royal Arch and members of other Orders.
