"Supporting local charities and good causes within the community"

COVID 19 Guidance 

Coronavirus Update - 11 August 2021


Dear Brethren,


The Heads of Scottish Masonic Orders met on Wednesday 11 August 2021, and discussed in general the fact that the United Kingdom continued to emerge from lockdown. In particular, the focus was on the Scottish Governments most recent announcement which provided that all protection levels had been rescinded from Monday 9 August 2021.


As a result of these significant recent developments, the Heads of Orders were unanimous that Masonic activity in Scotland may resume with immediate effect.


I will look to hold a committee meeting in the not to distant future to discuss the way forward with our meetings and will provide regular updates on this page and the Lodge Facebook page. 


I feel it is just as important that we keep in communication and keep the principals of freemasonry alive and well during the return to masonry. This is an opportunity for freemasonry to shine and support our communities by following the guidance provided.


As Freemasons and as good citizens, please continue to follow guidance from the Government and although we can now look forward to commencing meetings, please remember those less fortunate than yourself who may be frail and may not be ready to return to meetings. 


I will ask our younger brethren to act as almoners for the lodge and ensure we have contact with all of you should you need anything. If you are not good with social media do not fret, as we will ensure we call you all using traditional phone calls.


Feel free to message this website, any office bearer or myself direct via social media or phone.


The GAOTU will give us strength in all our times of need, courage brother do not stumble.



Bro. Billy McPheat RWM
