A great start to 2022

Our Clubs are starting to get back to regular meetings and to rebuild after the recent challenges of the past two years in the shadow of Covid.

It was particularly pleasing to see Bryansford & District bring ten to be Made inside the historic Walls of Londonderry, on Friday 4 March. It is a long journey from the edge of the Mournes to Londonderry and it was great to see so many making the trip on a Friday evening.

Those attending were of all ages, though great so see so many new younger members. Harry Baxter, Secretary of Bryansford & District, was present along with Gordon Wright and Graeme Wright, both Past Presidents and Committee Men of the Club, all with sons being Made on the evening; a proud moment for each as the next generation joins the Apprentice Boys to keep alive the memory of the Brave 13.

Following the initiation and the closing of the Parent Club’s regular meeting the President gave the members a tour of the Memorial Hall.

Congratulations to all those Made, and Looking forward to seeing them back in Londonderry with their Club in August for the 333rd Anniversary of the Relief of Derry.
