Dear Companions,

sgc collarThis year's Annual Investiture of Supreme Grand Chapter will be held at Freemasons' Hall, Great Queen Street in London on Thursday 26th April starting at 11.15am.

Our M.E. Grand Superintendent is keen that as many Devonshire companions join him to support those companions who will be receiving preferment to Grand Rank at that convocation. This convocation is open to all companions. The dress code is morning suit/dark suit, white shirt, the Royal Arch tie, or plain black tie (not provincial tie) with appropriate Aprons/Sashes, Collars & Jewels.

As in previous years many companions travel to London by train and currently the following ideal times for the trains to/return are: -

0553hrs train from Plymouth arriving at London Paddington at 0951hrs., our return train is the 1703hrs from London Paddington returning to Plymouth at 2117hrs .

Please check train ticket prices carefully as they will vary over different websites.

After the convocation has finished we then join E.Comp. Simon Rowe for the lunch held at the Connaught Rooms adjacent to Freemasons' Hall. The cost of the lunch is still to be confirmed, but will be around £48 pp. Menu details and cost will be forwarded later.

If you wish to attend, please book your train tickets direct and inform me (email address is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) if you wish to dine on the Devonshire tables. I will then co-ordinate our numbers for lunch with E.Comp. Simon Rowe.

We hope to have your company on this very enjoyable day at Freemasons' Hall and I look forward to hearing from you.

E.Comp. John Sevieri, PGStB
2nd Provincial Grand Principal
