The Chapter was opened by the MEZ, E.Comp. Roger Tutton, who welcomed the Deputy Grand Superintendent and wished him a most enjoyable Convocation. E.Comp. Richard said how much he was looking forward to his first visit to the Chapter, especially as their first candidate in eight years was being exalted.

A ballot was taken for Bro. Shariah Kordestani of Lovekyn Chantry Lodge No 6807. This proved in his favour. The MEZ invited E.Comp. David Thompson to act as MEZ and conduct the ceremony up to Enlightenment. E.Comp. Chris Eley was then invited to act as MEZ to Exalt Bro. Shariah into the Holy Royal Arch and invest him with the Robe, Jewel, Sash and Badge of Office. The office of Scribe N was kindly filled by E.Comp. Steve Jones, PAGDC, Assistant to the Provincial Grand Principals.

The signs were given by E.Comp. Tim Ford, who also gave the Mystical Lecture. One of the Provincial Team, E.Comp. Mark Donovan, ProvGSoj, gave the Symbolical Lecture. Both Lectures being delivered in a faultless manner. Comp. Shariah was welcomed into the Holy Royal Arch and the Province of Surrey by the Deputy Grand Superintendent.

A proposition to donate the sum of £400 to the 2019 Festival was approved by the Companions and the MEZ had much pleasure in presenting a cheque to the Deputy Grand Superintendent.
