    Stuart Gandy was one of Cheshire`s most senior Masons,very highly regarded and respected and will very sorely missed by all of masonry.
    He was the Provincial Director of Ceremonies for the previous Grand Master Timothy Richards.
    An outstanding mason with extraordinary high standards,I was lucky enough to have been a steward under him.

    Our sincere condolences to his family,we paid our respects at our Chapter meeting tonight.
