Following their being installed into the Principals Chairs the three Principals held their first Exaltation Ceremony at the Vale of Jehoshaphat Chapter, and was accompanied by E Comp Alan Holton, Deputy Grand Superintendent, and his DC E Comp Adrian Halliwell.
Due to sickness of several officers or their family, late changes had to be made, E Comp Julian Frost stepping in as Principal Sojourner, E Comp Matt Jarvis deserting the IPZ post and becoming 1st Assistant Sojourner, E Comp Fred Body became IPZ and E Comp John Kidd stepped up to Director of Ceremonies. Despite all the changes the Exaltee, Bro Alan Chambers, was treated to a very good ceremony.
Comp Tommy Boll was presented with his Supreme Grand Chapter Certificate by E Comp Alan Holton.
At the festive board the call was made to one of the “ancients”, E Comp Trevor Cooper, who acted as Director of Ceremonies and ensured that proceedings continued in a friendly and congenial way. Birthday greetings were sung to E Comp Bob Smith who celebrated his 76th birthday on that day.
