A number of regional postal distribution centres are subject to industrial action.

This may mean that letters and packages you send to us will not be received in the normal timescale.

Also there has been no collection of mail from Freemasons' Hall for the last few days and it is likely that anything you have requested or ordered in the recent past will be delayed.

In addition the Cummunications Workers Union began a national ballot yesterday of all postal workers. This may mean the postal system will cease to function. Should that be the case then that will have a major impact on the material sent to and from Freemasons' Hall.

If there is anything you urgently require please call (0131 225 5577) for advice.

We will try to update the news page to reflect the changing situation.
