A good number of Companions used a lot of brownie points to attend the Convocation that
clashed with Valentines Night. I am sure the companions paid for the evening in flowers,
chocolates and late meals out.
The companions were rewarded by an excellent evening to witness Brother Jonathan Trott of Wraxall Lodge, being exalted into the Holy Royal Arch.
The Principals E Comps Dale Shermon (Z), David Maddern (H) and Martin Slocombe (J)
were greatly assisted by Comp Richard Hicken (PSoj), plus E Comps Richard Ellis, Martin
Slocombe and Richard Reeve presenting the Mystical Lecture. However, it was very much
appreciated that E Comp David Parslow, Past Provincial Third Grand Principal, stood in at
fairly late notice as 1st Assist Soj and delivered Three Master Masons from Babylon
impeccably and did not introduce many foreign (Eldon) workings.

The evening proceeded with ballots for another two candidates, plus presentation of
Certificate to Comp Paul Light.
The evening concluded with another fine meal from the Nailsea Caterer and the Principals and Candidate were in relaxed mode.

Tyntesfield Chapter will welcome The Provincial Team for the May meeting (9th May) and look forward to greeting the Grand Superintendent, his team and hopefully many guests.

Words and pics are thanks to E Comp (Scribe Tyntesfield 4494) Ian Disdel, as I was working away in The United States Of America when we had our meeting.

Also on a Side note last night on the 4th of February 2019 we had our Calderley Chapter of Union meeting,  what a simply brilliant time I had at the meeting, I was there as my appointed role for my own Royal Arch Chapter Tyntesfield 4494 meeting in Nailsea Somerset as the Calderley Liaison Officer, we had such a wonderful installation of officers and I stood in as an officer of the chapter as they were short tonight, wow what am experience, we then opened the floor up to debate, mere words can’t describe what it’s like when with like minded professional people who can debate like gentlemen for the greater good making Freemasonary better and especially Royal Arch better, I feel so privileged, nay honoured, to be in their company treated as an equal, I cannot urge all MM enough to consider joining Royal Arch (Chapter) enough, complete the 4th part of your circle and become whole, MM get in touch I will find you a Royal Arch near you, equally I urge any man who has an interest in Freemasonary to get in touch if you want to join I will point you in the right direction, SMIB?#freemasonary #royalarchchapter#royalarchmasonary #craftfreemasonry
