2012 Provincial Grand Secretaries Report
4th Provincial Assembly of Wessex,  hosted by Bishop Leofric Court No. 58 Held in Okehampton,  Devon on the 18th. May 2012
THE PROVINCE OF WESSEX 2012 RW. PGM, Grand Officers, and brethren all.  It is now my pleasure to report on the development of the Province of Wessex in particular. Since   the   conception   of   the   Province   of   Wessex   commencing   31st.   May   2008   together   with   the   Consecration   of   our first Court, namely Malmesbury Court No. 100,  many new and exciting developments have taken place. For   example   on   the   15th.   August   2009   we   Consecrated   our   second   Court,   Bishop   Leofric   No.   58   in   the   County   of Devon.      Meeting   new   and   enthusiastic   Companions   that   have   taken   to   heart   the   concept   of   the   Order.      And   on   the 23rd. of January just this year we were privileged to found the third Court, “The Court of Æþelbald No. 62. These   Companions   of   Keynsham   are   to   behold,   I   think   you   are   all   due   for   a   treat.      When   the   Court   meeting   follows this Provincial Court closing you will see how dedicated and professional they are. Our RWProv.GM and myself did attend their 1st. Regular meeting in March when they performed an Instruction ceremony that was entirely produced by   their   own   members.      we   were   both   impressed   by   the   standard   of   the   ritual   and   enthusiasm   for   the   progress   of “The Order of Athelstan” They   have   decided   as   a   team   to   write   down   not   only   their   names   and   other   personal   details   but   most   interestingly   to report   on   the   Consecration   Day   as   recorded   from   memory   of   that   occasion,      to   be   laid   down   and   sealed   behind   their Warrant   to   be   read   out   in   Open   Court   50   years   later.   I   think   you   will   agree   that   idea   hits   the   spot.   I   only   wish   that other   orders   that   I   belong   to   had   done   the   same,   making   it   easy   for   the   Court   Historian   whoever   it   may   be   to   record that memorable day. OK   as   for   the   future,      much   further   success   will   follow,      but   not   to   hasten   to   add,      withought   considerable   time   and effort   on   behalf   of   our   hard   working   RWPGM.      -----      Willing   to   pursue   any   valid   lead   to   spark   interest   wherever within his Province the “Order of Athelstan” is mentioned. A   new   Court   in   Cornwall   is   making   good   progress   under   the   direction   of   the   Founding   organiser.      W.Bro.   K.   Barry Chalkley,   MBE.      The   new   Court   will   be   named      “King   Hywel   of   Cornwall”      meeting   at   Perranporth,   to   be Consecrated   this   September   on   the   25th.   of   the   month,      not   to   hasten   to   say   to   be   confused   with   Magonsaetan`s “Hywel Dda,  they are two totally different persons. And   hear   before   us   the   Master   of   “The   Court   of   Æþelbald” ,   W.Bro.   Mervyn   S   Western   has   made   good   progress   in forming   a   Court   in   the   North   Somerset   area   in   Burnham   -on   -   Sea   .      To   be   called   ÆĐELRED   REX.      He   has   secured quality Companions and the petition has been granted by Grand Court being Court No. 66,  so the Consecration date is to be held in Nailsea Masonic centre on the 3rd. July this year. And   as   a   surprise   to   all   of   us   living   in   this   area   A   new   Court   in   the   centre   of   Bristol,      Park   Street   to   be   named “Bricgstowe”   the   anciant   name   for   the   city.   This   formation   has   been   secured   by   W.Bro.   Colin   Lowther   who   has infiltrated   the   closed   Balwin   Encampment   that   has   been   in   existence   for   some   considerable   time   within   Bristol. We   are   close   to   the   20   unique   members   that   Wessex   demands   for   the   construction   of   a   new   Court   and   the   Craft PGM   and   DepPGM   of   Bristol   have   agreed   that   “The   Order   of   Athelstan”   will   be   allowed   to   use   the   magnificent Temples   that   are   so   unique   and   palatious.   I   urge   you   not   to   miss   this   Consecration   brethren. The   date   that   has   been penciled in: Is for November this year. There   are,      as   you   may   guess   many   more   willing   helpers   in   the   Province   of   Wessex,   prominent   and   influential Companions   in   other   Orders,   all   instilling   the   premise   “Quality   against   Quantity”   .   That   is   so   in   the   South   Devon and Dorchester area to Wiltshire to the Isles of Scilly  all progressing well to make Wessex a strong and prosperous Province.   And finely, -   may Wessex continue to excite all who are members of "The Order of Athelstan". To progress with enthusiasm and seal, and be proud that we   the   members, have been privileged to be part of this new and exclusive Order. That  R.W. ProvGMaster  and Brethren that is my report. W.Bro. Brian G. Wright, DepGSec , Provincial Grand Secretary.
