The Annual Meeting of the OSM Provincial Grand Conclave takes place in the Wensum Valley Hotel, Golf and Country Club in Taverham, Norwich, on 22nd July 2019. It is always a very well supported event, by Norfolk members and Visitors from other Provinces, as well as Heads of other Orders in East Anglia.
This will be our new venue for the Annual meeting of the OSM. We are all looking forward to an enjoyable day.
The weather can be blazing hot on this day as it has been in so many past years, but this year we shall have the benefit of being able to get an airflow through the meeting hall and there should be plenty of space to shut in comfort.
The team will be there is good time to set up and be ready for rehearsals at the scheduled time. They alway do a splendid job and we are grateful to Wy Bro Geoff Keer for stepping into the Director of Ceremonies shoes – Wy Bro. Gary Secker will be on Safari and it was just one of those things you can’t turn down. Thank you Geoff, and have a great time, Gary.
You can stay overnight and many of our guests are staying on the Sunday and the Monday night.

After the Provincial Grand Conclave closes a representative of the Clare School in Norwich – Mr Gavin Thorpe, the principal Fund Raising Manager will be escorted into the meeting and welcomed. Mr Thorpe will give a short talk on the work of the School, following which we will make a presentation to him of the sum which has been raised by the Norfolk OSM Province. We are extremely grateful to all the Conclaves and their members both as Conclaves and as individuals, our other friends, for their generosity in raising an impressive figure. We are also very grateful to Grand Conclave in Mark Masons’ Hall for the Fund Matching of an additional £1,000 to add to our total and allow us to make a presentation of £8,000, towards the huge task the school has undertaken to build a Hydrotherapy pool in the School Grounds to benefit the handicapped children attending this special school.
Don’t leave it too late. Book in Now and secure your place. We’ll guarantee you an enjoyable day.
Past years –
A good deal of fun and general enjoyment was had by everyone although there were some very long journeys and some unpleasant traveling to get to us it was a great pleasure to see everyone arrive safely and it is hoped the all homeward journeys were completed safely and uneventfully.
