It is with regret that I report the passing to the Grand Lodge above of W. Bro. Roger Legg, Prov, G.Stwd., a member of New Forest Mark Lodge No. 611. From the messages that I received he was highly thought of and a very willing member of the Lodge. His wife, Jenny has said, “ He was a good man and loved his masonry.” Can I ask that you have her and her family in your thoughts and prayers. We must continue to remember also all who are suffering in different ways, during these challenging and difficult times. Please keep up the communication with all.

Those Brethren who were able to view the Provincial Wardens regular Monday night light hearted banter and the toast to absent Brethren on Facebook, were treated to a very important guest this week, the Deputy Grand Master, R.W. Bro. John Herbert Prizeman. It was a very informative and interesting evening, with the DGM providing up to date information regarding our Order, and enlightening us on the current situation at Mark Masons Hall.
Good morning to you all, it would appear that I owe some of you an apology because you have not been able to download my letters due to me not using PDF. I have had my knuckles rapped, I am not overly technically minded when it comes to computers. Today I will attempt to send this in PDF format.
