The Chapter was honoured by the presence of E Comp Maldwyn T. Davies, the Second Provincial Grand Principal for the Province of Somerset, accompanied by E Comp Adrian J. Halliwell, Dep Prov GDC and Prov Liaison Officer.
At 6.30pm The Most Excellent and their Excellencies invited the Second Prov. G. Principal and his DC to take their seats in the Chapter prior to the Opening Ceremony – this was accepted and our visitors found it most interesting.
E Comp Maldwyn Davies, 2nd Prov G Principal, presented the Grand Chapter Certificate to Comp Brian Gay, then Comp Brian became the candidate for the Ceremony of Exaltation, which was carried out by the new team of Officers in an excellent manner.
Province: The recent Provincial Weekend at Bideford was again a great success and we were reminded that the Provincial Convocation Meeting will take place on Thursday 18th May 2017 at the Webbington where members of 329 will be receiving honours.
