Greetings from Tyntesfield 4494 RA Chapter, this will be a very short report as I have only just gained access to the website and I am about to fly out on holiday within the hour, may I introduce myself, my name is Rob Collins and I am the Calderley liaison officer and ADC for 4494, being new it will take a little time to find my feet so please bare with me.
We recently had a wonderful installation evening at our chapter here in the Nailsea temple, alas I have been remiss in my duties as the liaison officer on this occasion as I literally hit the floor running and having to jump in to several jobs all at the same time, this was due to a great many apologies for companions unable to attend Chapter that evening, none the less we had a wonderful and eventful installation, I will get pictures and give a full report after our next meeting so I can only give my heart felt sorry for such a garbled report, I will do better I promise.
We are doing a grand job at the Nailsea Temple the Chapter is flourishing, this year I hope to visit as many craft lodges and indeed chapters as I can on a double edged sword as it were, a bit of a giggle there as I am the Tyler in my craft lodge, the reason for the double edged sword is that I hope to recruit not only more MM to join Royal Arch but also find hands on help (volunteers) and possibly sponsorship for my role as Chairman for the Somerset Branch of the MTSFC, the details of the charity, branch and my contact details are on the picture below, this is a unique chance for Companions/Brother to do something truly great and not just chuck a couple of quid in the charity box or buy raffle tickets, I/we need you to actually get hands on, it also matters not weather you can fish or not we have so many roles that need filling, so please get in touch.
I attended the Calderley Liaison Chapter in Wedmore on Thursday the 20th of September 2018, WOW what a simply awesome night, watching the ceremony both from our Calderley team but also the provincial Team simply brilliant and has inspired me to do better, I won’t say much more about this but I urge you to read the Calderley Chapter report as mere words or pictures just does not do this awesome meeting justice.
All that’s left to say from me is I wish you all well and hope to meet you all again very soon.
Regards Rob Collins
Calderley Liaison Officer for Tyntesfield Royal Arch Chapter no 4494
