With a little help from their friends

In May, I was invited along to the Earl of Zetland Chapter in London to assist the Chapter by acting as MEZ. Also present was our Deputy Grand Superintendent Designate, E.Comp. Richard Knox, and a number of Heads of Orders present and past from the Province of Surrey.

The main item on the agenda was an address by the Scribe E, E.Comp. Michael Barnes, entitled ‘Arches’. This most interesting and informative address was very well received and prompted a good discussion afterwards.

Present were the Provincial Grand Master of the Mark Province of Surrey, Ian Clark, the Chapter DC; the District Grand Master of the Royal & Select Masters District of Surrey, David Blackburn, who acted as Principal Sojourner; and E.Comp. Chris Cradock, Past Third Provincial Grand Principal, and Provincial Sub Prior in the Provincial Priory of Surrey, Knights Templar.

The Third Principal of the Chapter was E.Comp. Louis Keats, the Provincial Grand Summus of the Ancient and Masonic Order of the Scarlet Cord in the Provincial Grand Senatus of Surrey.

After the Chapter was closed we all went along to the Imperial Hotel, Russell Square, for a most convivial festive board.
