CHRISTMAS GREETINGS FROM THE GRAND SUPERINTENDENT
Despite a positive start, this year has been significantly overshadowed by the Covid-19 pandemic causing a huge amount of anxiety and distress to both Brethren and Companions alike. A number of our long-standing events have had to be cancelled inevitably causing an upset to all concerned. The weekly quiz however, has been extremely well received and continues to provide the companions with a degree of light relief and a temporary distraction from these troubling times.
I am aware of the sacrifices that many of you have had to endure, but would like most sincerely to thank each and every one of you for your hard work and commitment in maintaining a communications support network throughout in order to support your fellow Brethren and Companions. All being well and with a vaccine about to be rolled out the future is beginning to look a little brighter, let’s hope that we can write this year off and consign it to history enabling us all to look forward to a return to normality and a better and brighter 2021.
It is also that time of the year and this year more especially due to restrictions that we shall all be attempting to celebrate Christmas in various and challenging ways; to that end Peggy and I wish you all a Very Happy Christmas, but more especially a Healthy and Brighter New Year.
Yours sincerely and fraternally
