Summer Address by the Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master for and Most Excellent Grand Superintendent in and over South Wales

I trust that you and your families have all enjoyed a pleasant and relaxing Summer recess and are looking forward to resuming your Masonic activity and friendships across our fraternity, over the forthcoming period.

Please find below a number of the key activities which are planned for our Province in the run up to the Christmas break and as you will note, we have an exciting and varied programme of activities; with many others to be confirmed and announced shortly.

It is nearly 10 weeks since we met as a Province in Barry Memo for our Annual Investiture and I took personal pleasure from being able to meet as many of you as possible in person and I very much look forward to your company at a variety of different Masonic meetings and functions in the coming months. As the Executive and I perambulate the Province, it is wonderful to see numbers attending increasing and it finally seems we are returning to a normal state of affairs, akin to before 2020.

With my very best wishes, yours fraternally,

RWBro. / E.Comp. D. Gerald Rowbottom
