Congratulations to Brother Neil Harvey who was installed at MC2021 as our new Grand Master.Neil has been a member of Napier Lodge for 45 years and was involved at a Lodge, District and Society level before joining the Fraternal Council in 2015. His long-standing involvement, together with the support and encouragement he has received over the years, led him to accept the challenge of this new position.
During his term Neil hopes to continue the growth in the Fraternal side of our organisation. Together with our Fraternal Council team and Fraternal Administrators, he aims to be approachable and will strive to keep in touch with you, our members.
For his term as Grand Master, Neil has chosen to support the Epilepsy Association of New Zealand, an organisation providing information, education and support to the wide range of ages affected by this illness. Neil’s five year old grandson Harrison has suffered several seizures since he was three years old so they have seen first-hand the effect of the illness on him and his family.
Neil wishes to acknowledge the dedication and work of our immediate past Grand Master Brother Graham Allanson for his work in growing the Fraternal side of Manchester Unity.
He looks forward to meeting many of you as he visits the Lodges over the next two years.
