The festive period is now a distant memory and Easter is
just round the corner. There is only one daughter lodge installation still to
take place. The Commissioned Officebearers and their teams continue to be busy
and active throughout the province and are completing the round of annual lodge
visits. I thank all the lodges for the welcome and support given to me, the
Commissioned Officebearers and their teams when visiting the lodges throughout
the province. I also thank the brethren for their continuing support at
Provincial Grand Lodge communications where attendances have been excellent.
One lodge (427) has just celebrated its 150th
anniversary and re-dedication and we have another two celebrations to look
towards later in the year, Lodge Robert Burns No.440 celebrates its 150th
in November and Lodge Meridian marks its
25th anniversary in September.
There is a positive feeling in the province and the
brethren have been, and I hope will continue to be, very supportive of new
ideas and events. At the end of April the PGL Annual Divine Service will take
place at Uddingston. Soon afterwards I will be undertaking a sponsored walk in
aid of Prostate Scotland. You can follow my progress on Facebook from 3rd May.

able to join us and brethren from other provinces for a nostalgic trip “Doon
The exact dates and venues of these and other events are
shown elsewhere in the website, the support of the brethren of the province is
needed and welcomed to make these events a success.
I particularly thank brethren who have been involved
in fund raising events for the PGL Annual Charity Appeal and hopefully we will
make this a special year for the two charities Prostate Scotland and Breast
Cancer Care Scotland.
This website continues to evolve to meet the
information needs of the daughter lodges, the brethren of the Province and
other interested website users. Enjoy browsing through our website and please
