hra summer lunch 2018The Province of Devonshire 7th HRA Chapter Summer Dinner on Saturday 29th July 2018 was this year held for the first time at The Livermead Cliff Hotel , Torquay.

This annual event was enjoyed by over 170 Companions, wives & partners. The Most Excellent Grand Superintendent (MEGS) Simon Rowe and his wife Lin welcomed everyone who attended. With so much warm and sunny weather it turned out to be the first wet evening for over 5 weeks but it did not spoil what was a superb meal and wonderful company with a chance for the wives and Partners to join in this well organised event.

Mrs Lin Rowe was presented with a bouquet of flowers by E.Comp. Chris Roach, DeptPGSup. The Most Excellent Grand Superintendent ‘MEGS’, E.Comp. Simon Rowe thanked all those who had a part in putting the evening together especially E.Comp. Chris Roach as this was his last year putting this event together, and the hotel and staff for a wonderful meal and service. A presentation of a further bouquet of flowers was then presented by ‘MEGS’, Simon Rowe to Sue Roach.

E.Comp. Simon Rowe then thanked all the Companions & guests for supporting the evening as well as a mention to those who were unable to attend and those who had departed to the Grand Chapter above. A wonderful evening of Companionship to which Happily did we meet, Happy did we all part, and Happily we will all meet again next year.
