Wor Bro Michael Holden MBE.

It is with great pleasure that we note the inclusion of Wor Bro Michael Holden in the 2017 New Year’s Honour’s List, where he was recorded as receiving an MBE making him a Member of the Order of The British Empire. Michael is the chairman of Trip-ability Belfast and his award was given in acknowledgement of his services to people with disabilities over many years. Michael was a well known personality to members of The Grand Lodge of Ireland, where, for a number of years, he assisted those in authority in Dublin to work with the press, in an effort to improve how the public at large viewed the Masonic Order. Michael can certainly be acknowledged for establishing the framework, that is still used to this day, in our dealings with the press. I am particularly pleased to learn of this award, as it is so richly deserved.
