Devonshire Court, the Masonic Care Home in Oadby, Leicester, was the centre of attention just before Christmas, as one of the residents, R.W.Bro. Gayton C. Taylor, Provincial Grand Master of Leicestershire & Rutland between 1978 and 1989, was visited by four of the Provinces’ past and present Provincial Grand Masters.
The sun was shining as the Provincial Grand Master, R.W.Bro. Peter C Kinder was joined by R.W.Bro. David V. Hagger (PGM 2010 – 2019), R.W.Bro. Michael H. Roalfe (PGM 2002 – 2010), and R.W.Bro. Derek A. Buswell (PGM 1989 – 2002) to pay a visit to R.W.Bro. Gayton. At 97 years old, R.W.Bro. Gayton was in a jovial mood and extremely pleased to see his friends visit him all at the same time.
Having organised the visit, the Provincial Grand Master R.W.Bro. Peter said, “What a delight to see Gayton looking so well, and what a special treat for all of us to have the opportunity of gathering together to celebrate the last forty-two years of guiding the Province of Leicestershire & Rutland Freemasons”.
