Dear Companion

The warmest of welcomes is offered to all, Masons and non-Masons, who take the trouble to look at this website. In response, your comments are equally welcome. This is a most unreal time. The nation strives to deal with a dreadful virus that most of us could never have anticipated. Governments, the National Health Service and all key workers are doing their very best and we must do our part by observing all the rules and guidance. Only by that united effort can we see the best outcome. Masons continue to help in the community. By practical actions or by charitable giving, and charity will always be most important to every Mason. We all work and hope for a return to some form of normality, and soon. Our usual Masonic meetings are not happening. In the Order of Royal and Select Masters we are due to hold our South Wales Annual Meeting. The appointment and promotion of District Officers, and the opportunity to mark achievements and to know where we need to learn generally is an important landmark every year. Arrangements are being worked up. Ideally, Companions will continue to keep in touch with each other, especially with anyone living on their own. The telephone, the sound of the friendly voice, can be invaluable. Finally, I must thank the Companions for all that they do in and outside the Order, and I look forward to when we can all meet together again.

Please keep safe and well.

Yours sincerely and fraternally

District Grand Master
