On the afternoon of 10th November almost seventy members and guests from England and Wales gathered in the splendid surroundings of the Cholmondeley Room and Terrace of the House of Lords for tea with our new Grand Prior, the Marquis of Lothian. Despite the gloomy weather outside, the atmosphere was animated and the views across the Thames as spectacular as always.  New acquaintances were made and old ones renewed over a sumptuous tea, rounded off by a glass of Prosecco before departure.   Eleven of our 15 Commanderies were represented.  Special guests included Peter Walker, Chief Executive of The Leprosy Mission, and James Wells, Chief Executive of EMMS International.
