On behalf of all the members of St. Andrew’s Lodge, I send our warmest wishes for a safe, healthy and merry Christmas to all Freemasons and non-masons alike, along with your families, friends and loved ones.
I think it is fair to say that we will all remember 2020 as a particularly difficult and challenging year. So many lives have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic; families have lost loved ones, and businesses have suffered unprecedented hardships. It may be some time before we see things return to how they were before the virus struck, but I feel we may just be beginning to see some positive signs for the future with vaccines hopefully becoming available over the coming months.
I urge you all to remain upbeat and positive, to take time to think about those less fortunate than ourselves, and to offer whatever assistance you feel able to give to bring a little happiness to others.
Enjoy the festive period, and let’s all look forward to a happy and prosperous New Year in 2021.
Steve Williams, W. Master
