Sovereign Council and 1 Sovereign Chapter,
Deputy V∴Ill∴Bro. Phil Ineson 33°)
Unfortunately the economy took a further down turn and we were unable to attract any new candidates to Sarum Sovereign Chapter, this despite our best efforts to find suitable candidates.
Happily, both Sarum Sovereign Chapter and Hunyani Sovereign Council are stable with the present membership remaining unchanged; fortunately we enjoyed good attendances in both Chapter and Council. We supplemented our meeting with interesting lectures and instructional workings, each member being asked in turn to research and present a lectures starting at the 4° and progressing chronologically . The amount of information on these degrees available on the internet is absolutely amazing. These lectures were not only interesting but supplemented our knowledge substantially.
This coming year we should see two Excellent and Perfect Companion qualify for the 30°, if they accept promotion, this will help Hunyani Sovereign Council enormously.
Also due to lack of numbers in other constitutions, I have again worked very actively with the Deputy for the Grand East of the Netherlands A. & A Rite, assisting in several workings in their 28th, 29th, 31st and 32nd degrees all of which I found very interesting and thank those members of the Scottish Constitution for their supported on my visits. The Grand East of the Netherlands and the Ancient & Accepted Rite, English Constitutions both invested new SGIGs' and I look forward to a close working relationship with them both.
I renew my allegiance and that of all of my Office-bearers to the Grand Commander and the Supreme Council for Scotland, Ancient and Accepted Rite. I would again like to thank the Grand Secretary General and his able staff for their assistance and understanding over this last year.
