Banners of The Holy Royal Arch Chapters

in Hertfordshire

Goffs Oak Chapter No: 7169

Goffs Oak Chapter was consecrated on the 29th October 1956,

At the January 2005 meeting of the Chapter GP committee, it was suggested that the Chapter might celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2006 by commissioning and dedicating a Chapter banner.

 

A number of designs were presented to the Chapter committee for consideration and the chosen design was presented to the Companions at the convocation of the Chapter on 28th June 2005 where it was resolved that it should be forwarded to the ME First Grand Principal for approval.  This approval was received on 16th December 2005.It was also resolved that, if possible, the banner should be dedicated at a convocation as near to the date of the anniversary as possible.
 

At an especial convocation on Monday 30th October 2006, 50 years and one day after the Chapter was consecrated (Chapters are not permitted to meet on Sundays), the ME Grand Superintendent, E.Comp. John Ilott, supported by the full executive and accompanied by two Past Grand Superintendents of Hertfordshire, the ME Grand Superintendent of Berkshire and his Deputy and a large retinue of Officers of the Provincial Grand Chapter of Hertfordshire, dedicated the new Chapter banner in a splendid ceremony.

The Banner was designed by E. Comp Gary Warren and funded by the Chapter and made by the embroidery department at Great Queen Street at a total cost of £1,600.
