Over the last few weeks, several hundred Charity Stewards, Worshipful Masters, Wardens & others have attended the 4 2021 Festival Area Launch Events to be briefed directly by Festival Chairman WBro Sir Paul Williams.
The West Area Launch of the South Wales Province 2021 Festival in aid of the Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution was very well attended with over 100 present, made up from Liaison Officers, Charity Stewards, Lodge Officers and members from Neath, Maesteg, Port Talbot, Porthcawl and Swansea.
The Province has been divided into areas, North, South, East and West. Each has its own Area Chair supported by a group of Liaison Officers who will link with Lodge Charity Stewards. Each Area will have its own launch and Sir Paul Williams Chair of the Festival Committee will be making a presentation on the plans for the Festival and the role of the Charity Steward.

On 22nd January 2015, at Hendre Lodge, I was delighted to launch the Provincial Grand Lodge of South Wales’ 2021 Festival on behalf of the Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution. This special occasion marked the opening of another important chapter in the history of our wonderful Province which has held no less than 10 Festivals since they began in their present format in 1921. By the end of this Festival, South Wales brethren will have given 100 years of unstinting commitment to support the Central Masonic Charities (The Grand Charity, Royal Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys, Masonic Samaritan Fund and the RMBI).
