 The Drivers embarked on a countryside drive devised by WBro Dermot Bambridge. The wide variety of cars made the picturesque journey through the rolling landscape concluded at "The Keep," in Bedfordshire which served as the perfect setting for the day’s highlight— The raising of Bro Colin Baines on behalf of St Peter & St Paul Lodge 1410, Newport Pagnell. This unique gathering underscored a tri-county collaboration, raising a Brother from Buckinghamshire, by Northants & Hunts, in Bedfordshire uniting under a shared heritage of both automobiles and Masonic values.
