  1. The  Secretary/ Scribe  of the Lodge giving up the Gavel/ Sceptre should inform the Provincial Secretary where it is now residing and ensure the black mileage Log enclosed is completed before passing it over to the new incumbent.The Secretary/ Scribe  of the Lodge taking charge of the Gavel or Sceptre should inform the Provincial Secretary that they have it in their safe-keeping and when the  Lodge next  meets  to enable it to be claimed.
  1. Every effort will be made to publicise the next meeting  Provincially  to encourage as many visitors as possible.
  1. At  each Annual Mark Provincial Grand Lodge meeting the Gavel  should be presented to the      Provincial Grand Master for the duration of the Meeting by the Worshipful Master  of the Lodge or one of his Wardens or a senior Past Master.
