Chapter of Rectitude No 502 – Installation

Share this news:

The Chapter of Rectitude has a very fine record, having received its Charter in 1882.  It has had and still has many prominent members, including the present Deputy Grand Superintendent, E Comp David Graham and other Grand Chapter Officers.   It is also one of the larger Chapters in the Province, and has fine traditions which are upheld well by the present membership.

No pressure there then for the visiting Provincial team and supporting Acting Officers, who were there in good numbers.  The Installation went very well, with E Comp Richard Clews taking the First Principal’s chair for the second time, E Comp John Illingworth taking the chair of Haggai, and E Comp Rob Mason taking the chair of Joshua.  The Installation was expertly managed by E Comp Kevin Goodwin, the Installing Principal inducting the new MEZ in fine style.

The three newly Installed Principals, with the Installing Principal: L-R, E Comp John Illingworth, E Comp Richard Clews, E Comp Kevin Goodwin, & E Comp Rob Mason.

The Provincial team was headed by E Comp John Hayward, Assistant to the Provincial Principals, with E Comp Gary Evans acting as Second Provincial
Principal and E Comp Tim Carter acting as 3rd Principal with E Comp Paul Skinner, Asst Provincial Grand Director of Ceremonies.

Finally, the Provincial team and the Installed Chapter team together after a very successful and enjoyable Convocation.


With thanks to Paul Skinner for keeping us all in order and for his photography expertise.
