Provincial Priory 2010 Report

3rd July 2010

The photograph shows our Provincial Prior and Sub-Prior with the Great Seneschal.
On 3rd July, nearly 250 Knights assembled for the Annual Meeting of Provincial Priory at Oakley House, Bromley, despite the potential diversions of Wimbledon, the Tour de France, and what was left of the World Cup!

It was a gloriously sunny day, and the Bromley air-conditioning was working very well indeed, so nobody overheated. Visitors came from as far as Durham, Yorkshire and Spain, as well as Somerset and the South Coast, but they were all surprised by the unadvertised visit of the Very High & Right Eminent Great Seneschal, Malcolm Slater, GCT, who entered under the direction of the Deputy Great Marshal, Glyn Goddard.

The meeting ran exceptionally smoothly, and afterwards nearly 200 knights sat down to a very appropriate lunch for the day, comprising: melon, cold meats salad, new potatoes, cheeseboard, and our Traditional Kentish Cherries. The meal and especially the service was superb. All the visitors remarked that the serving staff performed like a well-drilled military unit (better than some Provincial Bodyguards, said one!)

The knights later left for home, well satisfied at having spent their Saturday in the best possible way!
