It was, as is the Grant's Whisky motto, "Stand Fast," on Thursday 14th November at the Installation Convocation of the Chapter at Kings Heath. Unfortunately the Second Principal was unavailable and so E. Comp. B Chare was called upon to fulfil the duty. E. Comp's Wright and Weston remaining as Z and J respectively.
The Provincial Team was led by the Dep. G. Supt. E. Comp. Michael D Cox, PAGSoj, accompanied by E. Comp. A John Yeates, PGStB, the Second Provincial Grand Principal and the Acting Provincial Third Grand Principal, E. Comp. Ian Fothergill, PGStB; who was called upon to present a SGC to Comp. Luke Stanton. They were very ably escorted by E. Comp. P. Webber, ProvADC.
Following the meeting the Companions retired to enjoy a very convivial Festive Board.
