The order is to support King Athelstan Memorial Foundation, which is currently progressing two projects which are:

  • Presentation of a replica Anglo Saxon Sword to the Athelstan Museum at Malmesbury, created by Hector Cole, a well-known Wiltshire creator of such historical memorabilia, together with a short video of the making of the sword and its use in Saxon times (Budget allocation £5,000)
  • The presentation of an embroidered Tapestry depicting King Athelstan, to All Saints Church in Kingston upon Thames (Budget allocation £15,000)

This appeal is supported by the Provincial Grand master and the Province of South Rheged and we would encourage individuals and Courts to consider their support of this worthwhile project.
