The chair having been restored to the Chapter principals, the MEZ gave a short history of Radlett Chapter and then the principals for the following year were installed in the traditional manner.

The Companions subsequently dined on a sumptuous four course banquet and a good evening was had by all. The Scribe E, E Comp Norwell Roberts, QPM, had worked exceptionally hard to ensure the contents of the meeting befitted such a special occasion and that as many Companions as possible could enjoy this anniversary meeting.
