Athol Chapter No 74 is one of the oldest Chapters in Warwickshire

Athol Chapter No 74 is one of the oldest Chapters in Warwickshire; with a warrant dating from 1811. The ritual used is said to be derived from old Midlands workings, which means several nuances to that usual in Warwickshire and so it was with interest and expectation that Provincial Teams from Warwickshire and Worcestershire joined together to observe the exaltation of Bro (now Comp) Stewart Charlesworth. The sixty Companions in attendance were not disappointed, all in all an excellent ceremony.

The Most Excellent Superintendents of both Provinces, E Comp Philip Hall and E Comp Colin Brown, attended and were supported by respective Deputies, Second and Third Provincial Grand Principals. Though not a regular visit E Comp Colin promised to try and invite his Warwickshire friends back to Worcestershire in the ‘next ten to fifteen years’.
