A wonderful eveningwas had by all . The Companions rallied around at the outset in the absence of the Janitor and Director of Ceremonies to build the Temple . Whilst the sceptres could not be found certain substituted secrets were used in their place , namely part of a Dc’s wand . Despite this challenge the meeting was enjoyed by all present ; seeing E Comp Andy Hill inducted into the chair ofZerubbabel ; E Comp Andrew Hardie installed into the chair of Haggai and E Comp Philip Hannah indicted into the chair of Joshua . The Provincial DC Neil Crabbe did a splendid job stepping in at short notice and managing the InstallationCeremony . A delightful Festive board followed, and we parted in harmony andpeace shortly after 10.00pm.
