The Travelling Loving Cup has started its travels once more, and has moved on from Athelstan Chapter 1333 meeting in Atherstone, to the Chapter of Faith and Hope 4772 meeting at the Yenton Masonic Centre.
In a superb presentation, E Comp Malcolm Owen, MEZ of Athelstan Chapter handed over the Cup, giving a history of its travels to date, and the conditions that need to be met to keep the Cup travelling through the Province.
Pictured above with the Cup at the handover are:
E Comp Dewi Cooke, Athelstan Almoner, E Comp Jonathan Bowley, Athelstan Haggai, E Comp Colin Bennett, Haggai, E Comp Ian Grayson, MEZ, E Comp Malcolm Owen, Athelstan MEZ, E Comp Howard Smith, Acting Joshua, E Comp Paul Bowley, Athelstan Joshua, E Comp Mike Smith, Athelstan ADC.
To follow the rules governing the Cup’s travels, the Chapter of Faith and Hope must select another Chapter, at another Warwickshire centre, with at least three members taking the cup to its destination. The holding Chapter must not keep it for long, so that it continues its journey throughout the Province, and encourages visiting between Chapters.
Incidentally, if anyone has seen or knows the location of the Cup’s travelling box and record of Chapters visited, please would they let me know. Although the Cup has travelled well, the container and Cup seem to have parted company along its route, which is reproduced below.
