10 November 2020:

A new set of national measures came into force in Wales yesterday, replacing the firebreak regime that has been in place since 23rd October 2020.

The law and the current guidance now permit Masonic meetings of up to 15 people to take place in Wales.

The relevant Provincial Offices will contact affected Lodges and Chapters directly in the coming days. Please note that Festive Boards are not yet permitted to take place.

Yours sincerely and fraternally,
