A deputation from the Provincial Grand Lodge of Fife and Kinross visited Lodge Balfour Melville No.809 on Thursday 23rd March 2017. The deputation headed by the Provincial Grand Master Bro. Rev Andrew E Paterson JP was warmly welcomed into the Lodge by Bro. Mark Feguson Right Worshipful Master and the Brethren present. The gavel was presented to the Provincial Grand Master Bro. Andrew Paterson who thanked the RWM and Brethren for the welcome into the Lodge intimating that the reason Provincial Grand Lodge was there was to dedicate the new Lodge carpet.

The dedication ceremony was conducted by Provincial Grand Chaplain Bro. Ian Cockburn in a very able and dignified manner. The gavel was then presented back to the Right Worshipful Master who then passed the Lodge to the Fellow Craft Degree and Bro. Reece Smith an Entered Apprentice was passed to that degree in what was a very well worked degree.
