Criterion Chapter of Installed First Principals 6220





Freemasonry in England was closed down in March for four months in order to protect our members, their families and the wider community. We have not been meeting or practising but supporting each other by telephone and social media. It has now been decided that lodges and chapters can meet again, provided they comply strictly with government guidelines. However, our meeting place is in an area where the Government has had to impose further restrictions, so we are unable to consider meeting until those restrictions are withdrawn.
