I am greatly honoured and privileged to once again submit my report to all the membership of this our Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, on the activities within the Province of Scotland South West.
The passing of another year saw Chapters and Councils filled to capacity on many occasions, with the admittance to our Orders of many worthy new members.   To all these new Perfected Knights I give my warm, sincere congratulations.
As our numbers increase the workload and dedication of Secretaries and Treasurers also increases and once again to them go my special thanks for the commitment and excellent work during this past year.
Visiting within and outwith the Province has once again given great awareness and pride on the activities of Councils and Chapters throughout Scotland.   Well done to the dedication of the members and keep up the good work.
Sadly during this past year we saw the passing of Ill. Brethren and Excellent and Perfect Companions.   We mourn them and will miss them and our thoughts and prayers go to their loved ones. 
May I also put on record to the Brethren suffering illnesses which are serious enough to cause concern and which may preclude them from attending meetings that you are always in our thoughts.   We look forward to your return to the fold, free from worry and pain.
Well done to those members in the Province and elsewhere whom Supreme Council has seen fit to promote.   Embrace and enjoy this further advancement in this the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite. 
I conclude with the sincere and grateful thanks to our Grand Secretary General, Most Ill. Bro. Alexander Galbraith, ably assisted by our Office Manager Fiona Hoggarth and Jennifer Smith, the new kid on the block for their help, guidance and support.
