With the festive season and 2020 fast approaching I would like to extend my grateful thanks to all three groups on the Fylde for their support in the first part of this season.
In particular the group chairmen and their respective members of each group executive who have been at the many installation meetings, celebrations, centenaries and social events we have enjoyed here on the Fylde.
I have also been delighted to have the pleasure of the company of our acting Provincial grand officers of the year, not only from our own groups but many visiting acting Provincial grand officers, it is a very special year that I hope will live long in the memory.
Freemasonry will continue to flourish if we all resolve to speak openly of our enjoyment of the work we do, not only in our lodges but in the support and charity we endeavor to spread through the community.
On behalf of my wife Anne and myself may we wish you and your loved ones a very merry Christmas and above all a happy, healthy and peaceful New Year.
