As we move ever closer to the launch of Festival 29, so the pace quickens and changes on an almost daily basis.
Indeed, many of you will already have purchased Festival 29 Gloves, and the new Festival 29 Ties which only became available a short while ago. The immediate wearing of which has been sanctioned by the Provincial Grand Master.
Likewise, several of you have already signed up for the continuous giving and are eligible to receive your Festival 29 Jewel. To be worn throughout the festival period.
However, the Provincial Grand Master has now also sanctioned that the jewel can also be worn with immediate effect. Therefore, if you have already received your Festival 29 Jewel, please feel free to do so.
For those of you who have signed up and are awaiting receipt of your jewel please be aware that the Festival Team are continuing to arrange distribution of the Festival Jewels in the most efficient and cost-effective way, and as such that distribution is ongoing.
Please also be aware that those of you who now sign up for continuous giving moving forward , that the MCF only notify the Festival Secretary of those eligible for a Festival Jewel on a monthly basis, and so there will be a delay in distribution accordingly.
Those of you attending the Provincial Meeting in May will be able to collect Jewels not already issued on the day , and indeed any of you signing up for continuous giving on the day will also receive your jewel on that day.
Thank you for your patience and continuous support, which will help ensure a successful outcome to Festival 29.
