Following discussions with Jurys Inn Hinckley Island Hotel and taking into account the likely progress of the pandemic over the next six months, it seems extremely unlikely that large indoor gatherings will be permitted by the UK Government by June.
The rollout of the vaccine is welcome news but it will probably be sometime before confidence returns to such a level that our members are comfortable meeting together in large groups.
The welfare of our membership remains the prime consideration of Grand College, as well as compliance with any Government directives.
Consequently the decision has been taken to cancel Annual Assembly on 12th June 2021.
Appointments to, and promotions in, Grand Rank will still be granted for 2021 and notification of such will be issued as usual at the appropriate time.
Yours sincerely and fraternally
R. Ill. Kt. Pt. Glyn R. Goddard
