Four Candidates for Warlingham Consistory

On Tuesday 30th November Warlingham Consistory No 134 conferred the First Grade of the Order on four Candidates. Present as members of the Consistory were R.Dist.Comp. Arnold Long, Provincial Grand Summus, and R.Dist.Comp. Michael Barnes, Past Provincial Grand Summus

The Consistory was opened in the First Grade of the Order by the President, Dist.Comp. Chris Eley, who welcomed all the guests and visitors. After the minutes had been approved the main item on the agenda was to confer the First Grade on W.Bro. Steve Harvey, Bro. Paul Jenner, Bro. Robert Short, and Bro. Jim Turner.

The President invited R.Dist. Comp. Michael Barnes to occupy the chair of Primus of Ostiarii for the ceremony. The ceremony was conducted in an excellent manner by the Past Provincial Grand Summus assisted by our Provincial Grand Summus, the Consistory Director of Ceremonies. It was certainly a ceremony that the candidates will remember for a long time.
