On Monday 25th March, King Alfred Chapter held their first Convocation of the new masonic year with E.Comps Sandy Glen as Z, Simon Sparkes as H and Jeremy Thomas as J.
The chapter were fortunate to have a candidate for Exaltation in the person of Bro James Joyce, a Master Mason of St Kew Lodge 1222 which also meets at Weston super Mare.
Bro James was entrusted and entered into the Chapter where several Companions undertook the ritual: E Comps Stuart Boyd and Malcolm Beard acted as Sojourners, E Comp Terry Clarke gave the Signs, E Comps Ian White, Arthur Rowe and Terry Clarke gave the Mystical Lecture. E Comp Arthur Rowe stood in as Scribe N.
The Chapter was also grateful to Comp Gordon Vinnicombe from Inkerman Chapter for acting as Janitor.
Companion James is seen with the Principals above, and with the acting sojourners below.
The Chapter retired for an excellent festive board, and will return on 13 May.
