St Swithun Chapter No.3483

EComp. Colin J. Venner recently celebrated 60 years continuous membership of St. Swithun Chapter No.3483 which in normal times meets in Freemasons Hall in Holsworthy, but owing to the Covid pandemic have been unable to meet like many other Chapters. A presentation was made to EComp. Colin in his home by members of the Chapter to mark this wonderful anniversary. He was initiated into Conciliation Lodge in Holsworthy on the 6th October 1958 and was Exalted into St Swithun Chapter on the 17th October 1960 he held every office in the Chapter and was the MEZ on 1st July 1975 he currently holds the Provincial Rank of PPrGSN.

He has been a great inspiration to many over the years and still very rarely misses a meeting in Craft or Royal Arch he was a very worthy recipient of a 60 year Certificate and is a wonderful example to everyone in Freemasonry in general as well as an asset to not only St Swithun Chapter but to the whole Province of Devonshire for his service and commitment. He was presented with his Certificate by EComp. Charlie Yelland Scribe E on behalf of the MEGS E.Comp. C.A Roach, the current MEZ of the Chapter E.Comp. Arthur Styewart presented him with a garden voucher on behalf of the Companions and a bouquet of flowers was also given to his wife Liz for all the support she has give him over the years. EComp. Colin is held in the highest esteem and respect by all of the Companions and is looking forward to returning to his Freemasonry when circumstances allow when I am sure a celebration will be enjoyed by all the Members of the Chapter.
