An Official Visit to Lovekyn Chantry Chapter

In February, the Companions of Lovekyn Chantry Chapter No 6807 were pleased to receive E.Comp. Ian Smith, PAGDC, AProvGP, representing the ME Grand Superintendent.

As the First Principal was unable to attend I acted as First Principal to give a narration entitled ‘A Commentary on the Holy Royal Arch Exaltation Ceremony’. E.Comp. David U Thompson, PGSoj, MetGI, acted as Narrator and E.Comp. Len Holt, PPGReg, acted as Principal Sojourner.

I then asked E.Comp. Ian if he would act as candidate for the demonstration, which he was pleased to do. It was really good exalting my old friend Ian, to pin a white jewel on his robe and to invest him with a Companion’s apron. After the demonstration E.Comp. Ian said how interesting the Narration was and how he had learnt more about the Holy Royal Arch.

After the Chapter was closed the Companions of Lovekyn Chantry Chapter and their ‘Newly Exalted Companion’ sat down to a splendid festive board at the Surbiton Masonic Hall.
