                                                             ay I first of all wish all Essex Brethren and their families a happy and
                                                         Mprosperous New Year.  We have a busy programme in the coming
                                                         year with the prospective consecration of three new lodges.
                                                         We are progressing well with the 2022 Festival and two important events
                                                         at Saxon Hall - the launch of the Members Pathway scheme which was
                                                         on 2nd February and taking place shortly is Conference for all Charity
       4  ProvinciaL newS                                Stewards on 21st March.

                                    This year we are going to try and consolidate our efforts to engage with and support local communities.
                                    To this end I very much support and welcome Masonic Hall open days or other events open to the
       10 Long Service              general public.  We are also in the process of establishing a Provincial Community fund so that we
                                    can, for example, give support to Lodges for local good causes to augment our broader and well
                                    established local charitable giving. You will hear more of these initiatives in the coming months.
