Renewal of Patent - V. Ill. Bro. John Boyington CBE 33°

On Wednesday 11th April 2018 at the Masonic Hall, Sackville Street, Skipton, a very important event occurred in the history of both St. Blasius Chapter Rose Croix No. 407 and the District of Yorkshire, West Riding, Ancient and Accepted Rite.

The Sovereign Grand Commander, Most Puissant Brother Alan J. Englefield 33° journeyed from London to present V. Ill. Bro. John Boyington CBE 33° with a renewal of his patent as Inspector General for the District of Yorkshire, West Riding.

The meeting also coincided with the Enthronement of Excellent and Perfect Bro. Robert I. Young as Most Wise Sovereign of the Chapter for the ensuing year.

The Enthronement ceremony was conducted by Illustrious Brother Derek Thulborn in an exemplary manner. At the conclusion of the Enthronement, M.P. Bro. Englefield presented V. Ill. Bro. Boyington with his new 5-year patent in a very charming and sincere manner and thanked him for the hard work and dedication he had given to the Order and the District over the preceding five years.

Also present at the meeting were the Sovereigns or their representatives of every one of the 21 Chapters in the District, the District Recorder Ill. Bro. Lance Milburn 32°, the Past District Recorder Ill Bro. David Jackson 32° along with V. Ill. Bro. Michael Page 33°, Inspector General for the District of Nottinghamshire.

Following the proceedings in the Lodge Rooms, a very convivial festive board was held. All agreed that it had been an excellent evening, and the brethren were looking forward to another five years under the guidance of their Inspector General.
