Court Knoll claim the Gavel for the first time

On 27th November, thirteen members of Court Knoll visited Brett Valley in Hadleigh along with a further seventeen guests to witness the Passing of Bro. Dale Avis in the presence of the Deputy PGM David Harries. The packed temple enjoyed a superb ceremony, in particular Mac Speake the Senior Deacon who guided Bro. Avis and WBro Howarth who treated everyone to a stirling explanation of the Second Degree Tracing Board deserve a special mention.

The festive board was in the usual entertaining manner expected at Brett Valley and eventually their WM Tim Warner asked if anyone present wished to claim the gavel, immediately the WM of Court Knoll, Brian Dundon, leapt to his feet and made his claim. Court Knoll members were invited to line up, handed song sheets and with great gusto sang the Beatles classic ‘We all live in a Yellow Submarine’, accompanied by clouds of party bubbles blown over them by the Brett Valley brethren. A lovely evening punctuated by the sound of laughter, the chink of the wine glass, and very much enjoyed by all those present.

The next meeting at Court Knoll in Boxford where the gavel can be claimed is the 3rd Tuesday in April 2016, meeting opens at 6pm, the Secretary Kirit Bedia can be contacted  at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
