The Installation Meeting of Taunton Deane Chapter no 5221 was in doubt when I arrived at the Masonic Hall in Taunton on Friday 26th May. The car park barrier could not be opened and the Grand Superintendent was left on the street. The area had suffered a power cut but fortunately the power was restored at 5.45pm and the meeting started on time. The Installing Principals were very efficient in Installing their successors E. Comp Hill as Z, E. Comp Seaton as H and E. Comp. Roworth as J.
The Officers were invested including the Chapter Liaison Officer E. Comp. Heys, the Grand Superintendent gave the address to the Principals and the Chapter was closed at 7.25pm.
The Companions were able to socialise for sometime whilst the meal was prepared. It was enjoyed by all eventually and following the traditional Toasts and speeches the Companions were on their way home by 9.40pm.
