Annual Quadripartite Convocation - Dorset, Hampshire & Isle of Wight, Somerset And Wiltshire

The Chapter of St. Martin, played host to this year's Annual Quadripartite Convocation. This annual event takes place across the Royal Arch Provinces of Dorset, Hampshire & Isle of Wight, Somerset and Wiltshire. It was Dorset's turn to host the event, and the Most Excellent Grand Superintendent of Dorset, Graham Glazier, decided on something different to previous Convocations. The result was that the Grand Superintendents of each of the four Provinces would participate in an Exaltation ceremony!

To a packed Convocation, Graham Glazier occupied the Chair of First Principal, Alan Berman, Most Excellent Grand Superintendent of Hampshire & Isle of Wight, occupied the Chair of Second Principal, John Reid, Most Excellent Grand Superintendent of Wiltshire, occupied the Chair of Third Principal and Barry Woodside, Most Excellent Grand Superintendent of Somerset, presented the Signs.

Officers of the Provincial Grand Chapter of Dorset occupied their respective offices during the Exaltation, supported by Bob Pennington, First Principal of the Chapter of St. Martin, together with Officers of the Chapter, to provide a ceremony that was impressive, memorable and unique.

The Exaltee, Shaun Tarrant, a member of Brownsea Island Lodge, no.9689, admitted to being 'overwhelmed' by the faultless ceremony.
