Latest Update: All Essex Lodge / Chapter Meetings Suspended from Friday 17/10/2020

Temporary Emergency Measures for Covid-19

From the Provincial Grand Master in Charge: 


To preempt questions from brethren in Southend and Thurrock (areas which currently remain at Tier 1) I should explain that Southend Masonic Hall (Saxon Hall) is actually within the jurisdiction of Rochford Council, which has moved to Tier 2, so meetings there would not be possible.

And, anyone from a Tier 2 area visiting a meeting in Thurrock would have to comply with Tier 2 regulations; meaning they could not legally attend a meeting with brethren who are not from their household; but it would be almost impossible for our centres in Thurrock to ensure such compliance.

I had to consider what is best for Essex Freemasons and for Essex Freemasonry so all meetings across Essex are suspended until Essex returns to Tier 1.
