New Year Message 2019
Greetings and best wishes to you and your families and friends and I hope and trust that a healthy and happy New Year awaits us all.
Christmas has only just left us - the last of the turkey has been turned into a fine curry, there is still wine in the garage, a good amount of cheese left over and memories by the sleigh-full. What more could a chap want? Now our thoughts turn to the impending New Year - always a time of contemplation for both a reflection of the past and a promise for the future - and in masonry, particularly our Allied Masonic Degrees, this is very true.
We have had a really happy and successful year in London Allied and the future for us is very bright – plenty of good meetings for us to meet with friends, social events, ritual to learn – OK, so some of it takes effort, but it is so worth it!!
There is much that will test our country and our society in this year to come but if everyone can learn some of our Masonic principles such as – tolerance, integrity, fairness, loyalty and commitment then all will be well. Let us show them how to do it in our daily lives and some of it will rub off.
I look forward to seeing all of you during the year to come, I look forward to being in your company and I look forward to our AMD growing in strength and happiness. Bring on 2019.
Best wishes to you all.
