Dear Sisters and Brethren

Following the Government directive to the country regarding the COVID 19 virus and having taken advice from Senior Grand Lodge officers and PIGM’s I write to you today suggesting that all meetings and social events organised by your lodge should be postponed from TODAY until further notice.

This directive includes all lodge meetings, Church Services and any function you may have organised.

I understand that many will be disappointed by the decision taken today but in the interest of the health and well being of our members and the general public I feel it’s the correct thing to do.

At this time no decision has been taken on the 12th July celebrations, this will be kept under review and further notice regarding it will be given in due course.

Friends we don’t know how long this pandemic will last for but as always, we are reminded and assured by the words of Psalm 46 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in troubles. 

As I have often said in the past Sisters and Brethren keep safe and look out for one another.

Imperial Grand Master
