E Comp David Richardson having been proclaimed 1st Principal for a further year had the great delight on Wednesday 17th of January of installing his son Comp Adam Richardson as 3rd Principal of Bedeword Chapter. “Family” installation meetings in the craft are relatively common, but not so much so in Royal Arch, but it was a delight for those present to witness such an event in the lovely rooms in Nuneaton.
The evening was further enhanced by the induction of E Comp Barry Jones into the 2nd Principal’s chair, to give an excellent mixture of experience and youthful enthusiasm within the new team.
Sadly, the Deputy Provincial Grand Superintendent, E Comp David Graham, was unable to attend the meeting as planned, due to damaging his leg only a short time prior to the meeting. The lot (and honour) therefore to preside fell to E Comp Nigel Hawkins, the current 2nd Provincial Grand Principal, ably supported by E Comps Graham Lewis, Stephen Smith and Paul Skinner.
