After the Chapter was closed 6 Master Masons accompanied by 2 Excellent Companions i.e. David Bell, P.G.St.B., P.Prov.G.J. and Richard Harper P.Prov.G.St.B. were admitted into the Chapter room for a presentation on Holy Royal Arch Masonry given by E. Comp. Geoffrey Weston, Past Deputy Grand Superintendent, E. Comp John Phenix Third Provincial Grand Principal and E. Comp. Jeremy Mallin Past Third Provincial Grand Principal.

E. Comp. Weston started the presentation by explaining the links with Craft Masonry, giving information about Royal Arch Masonry in Worcestershire, briefly explaining the various officers and stressing that every Master Mason should join a Royal Arch Chapter to complete their journey through the Craft.

E. Comp. Mallin then gave a brief history of the Royal Arch from before the union of the Antient and Modern Grand Lodges up to the present day explaining why the Book of Constitutions states that Craft Masonry consists of the Three Degrees including the Holy Royal Arch.

E. Comp. Phenix explained and pointed out all the colourful regalia of the Royal Arch.

Finally E. Comp. Weston summarised what had been said and recommended that the Master Masons give careful consideration to joining at a time that suits their particular circumstances and emphasised that they would be warmly welcomed and would thoroughly enjoy the experience.

After the presentation 24 Companions and 3 Master Masons sat down at a most enjoyable Festive Board.
