Welcome to the new Mark Provincial Website, which as you can see now has a completely new look and opens with one of the stunning views in our lovely Province of West Yorkshire.

The Website contains all its previous information and now much more, including dedicated sections for our Provincial Charity, the Cleeves and Whitehead Trust and the West Yorkshire 2023 M.B.F. Festival.

Also check out the video on 6 reasons to join the Mark and a new Royal Ark Mariner section where Mark Masons who have not yet joined the Fraternity can see a video extolling the virtues of the Order.

It also contains links to follow us on Facebook and Twitter and there is even a short video guide on how to find your way around the new site.

The Website, together with our Social Media platforms, have been our main means of keeping in touch during the dark days of lockdowns and social distancing. As we gradually get back to normality in 2021 they will be used to support that recovery, letting you know what is happening right across the Province. Please access them as often as you can.

In the meantime I have asked all Lodges to hold Virtual Meetings, where possible on their usual Meeting days, to maintain some regularity in our Orders until we are able to hold full face to face meetings again. When that time comes I look forward to meeting you all once again in your Mark and Royal Ark Mariner Lodges.

That can’t happen quickly enough, but until then please keep safe, keep well, and my very best wishes to you all.

Jim Steggles

Provincial Grand Master
