24 May A Visit to Spain
In May, the ME Grand Superintendent, E.Comp. Ian Chandler, the Second Provincial Grand Principal, E.Comp. Stephen Dingvean, the Third Provincial Grand Principal, E.Comp. Eugene Regan, and their wives flew to Malaga for the Convocation of the Supreme Grand Chapter of Spain.
We were well received and presented as a deputation from the Royal Arch Province of Surrey.
Our hosts dined us well on the 15th floor rooftop restaurant overlooking the Cathedral and other stunning views. Saturday saw us at the meeting whilst the ladies were treated to a visit to a tropical park with a tapas lunch.
That evening we went into Malaga old town for a taste of the real Spain with many tapas bars and an authentic Sherry bar.
Sunday saw us down by the port area with more restaurants and a craft market. Our own hotel had a slide from the 1st floor to the bar.
This has been the third invite for Surrey; the previous two were in Madrid and Tenerife. Next year it’s Barcelona.
