Installation Convocation of Stoneleigh Coronation Chapter.

The Installation Convocation of Stoneleigh Coronation Chapter No 5699, took place in April. The Convocation was opened by the MEZ, E.Comp. Colin Whitehead and the Chapter Banner was paraded. After welcoming the visitors the MEZ invited E.Comp. Chris Eley, PGStB, to present two Supreme Grand Chapter Certificates to Companions Jamie Jessop and John Blakeburn. These were presented in a most interesting and informative way. Installation Convocation of Stoneleigh Coronation Chapter.

Chris Eley, an Honorary Member of the Chapter, was invited to occupy the Second Principal’s Chair to install E.Comp. David Barden as Second Principal; and E.Comp. Roy Scott was invited to occupy the Third Principal’s Chair to install Stuart Goodden as Third Principal. The explanation of the three Principals’ Robes and Sceptres was given by E.Comp. Chris Eley.

The Chapter then approved a donation of £100 to the Tadworth Childrens Trust. E.Comp. Bob Hancock, PGSoj, presented the MEZ with an old Past MEZ jewel he had obtained. The MEZ thanked E.Comp. Bob for his kind gift, which will be used as a special IPZ jewel for the Chapter. Here we see E.Comp. Bob Hancock with E.Comp. Roy Miller, the Chapter Almoner.
