The Annual Meeting of the South Wales District Grand Council was held as a Virtual Business Meeting on Saturday 11th December 2021. Attending was the Grand Master, M.Ill.Comp. Kessick Jones, and Companions from many other Districts.

David Thompson, our Principal Conductor of the Work; and Ill.Comp. Chris Eley, our Assistant District Grand Recorder.

The Deputy District Grand Master for the South Wales District, Ill.Comp. Derek Thomas, said that unfortunately the District Grand Master R.Ill. Comp Gwilym Jones, could not attend the meeting due to a family illness, but he had asked him to run the meeting on his behalf. He declared the meeting open and welcomed all present, especially the Grand Master.

After the regular business of the District was completed, the names of the District Grand Council Officers for the ensuing year were read out. They will be invested by the District Grand Master early next year.

The Grand Master addressed the meeting. He thanked the District for the invitation and congratulated them on a well-run meeting. He also congratulated those District Officers appointed today, as well as those he would have invested in person at Grand Council in April. He said he had hoped to be with everyone in person, but circumstances did not permit this to happen.
