Victory Preceptory Centenary meeting

The centenary meeting of Victory Preceptory No. 207 took place on Wednesday 29th May 2019 at Freemasons' Hall, Northampton.

This is the first preceptory in the Province to reach its centenary (and it does pre-date the Province of Northampton Huntingdon & Bedford in this respect). The meeting was well attended with the Provincial Prior, Sub-Prior and a number of acting Provincial Officers along with distinguished guests including the Great Second Constable and members of other preceptories in the province.

The Centenary warrant was presented along with a rededication of the Preceptory banner and centenary jewels were presented to members of the Preceptory.
