Scottish Orange Home Fund

Cancellation – Holidays & Respite Breaks

Following discussion between the Scottish Orange Home Fund and Grand Lodge Executives, and in view of the worsening situation relating to the Corona Virus, the decision was taken today to cancel all Holidays and Respite Breaks at both Seton Sands and Wemyss Bay Sites until the present crisis is under control.

We make this decision with great sadness and in the knowledge that those who benefit from these breaks are some of our most vulnerable members, however, unfortunately they are also those people in the most “at risk” categories as identified by Governments and Health Officials. The health and safety of our members and their families must be our prime consideration at all times.

During the next few weeks all three facilities will be deep cleaned and made ready for occupation. We will keep regular contact with both sites and will be reviewing the situation nationally on a regular basis. If/when the situation improves, and only when we are confident that our members can enjoy a holiday in safety, will we start offering dates for holiday and respite breaks.

During the next week, the secretary will contact all members for whom we have received applications and nominations to advise them of the situation.   

It is our earnest prayer that God will keep us all safe and well during this most difficult of times.

Helyne MacLean

Secretary
