In these troubled times let us remember the magnificent work being done by our NHS and all other essential workers. Freemasonry may be on hold because of Covid-19 but the blood bikes are busier than ever assisting the NHS in their work and its many thanks to their volunteer riders including our own John Watts for their round the clock shift work. Because of the lockdown many of the fundraising events are not taking place so online donations are now more important than ever.
