At the Provincial meeting held on Thursday 10th June 2010 the Provincial Grand Master, RW Bro Peter J Sands appointed two new brethren to the Provincial Executive.

Graham Seeman, PAGSwdB, Provincial Grand Director of Ceremonies

Graham is very much a Berkshire mason having been initiated into Erlegh Lodge in July 1984 and exalted into Erlegh Chapter in November 1987. He was advanced into Mark Masonry in the Friendship and Care Lodge in March 1993 (Master in 1998) and elevated into Friendship & Care Lodge of Royal Ark Mariners in October 1997 (Commander in 2004).

As well as serving as a Provincial Deputy Grand Director of Ceremonies in the Craft Province, in the Mark Province Graham was Provincial Grand Organist for six years before serving a year as Provincial Grand Junior Warden. He was appointed to Past Assistant Grand Sword Bearer in 2008.

He has worked in IT within the warehousing and logistics industry for over 20 years. A father of five (two boys, three girls) he lives in Wiltshire with Fiona where he is organist at two village churches and his other hobbies are medieval history, heraldry and trying not to give in to every whim of his daughters – something at which he has so far been spectacularly unsuccessful.
