A Unique Meeting at Yatton

On 9th May 1966 the current Grand Superintendent of Somerset, E Comp John Bennett, was Exalted into Wrington Vale Chapter. Exactly 50 years later Wrington Vale had another regular meeting scheduled for 9th May. It was agreed that this meeting should be given over to a celebration of the anniversary.

Come the meeting everything proceeded in a most unprecedented manner. At the outset Chapter members and ordinary visiting Companions gathered in the Temple. The Chapter Principals performed the opening, approved the minutes of the previous meeting, advised those present of the death of E Comp Henry Collins (a full obituary would be presented at the next meeting) and then called off.

Here we see E Comps Barry Jones H, Mark Golding MEZ and David Wetherall J relaxing before the next part of the evening commenced.
