  1. Last week
  2. Meetings designed to start later, minimal admin in Lodge, short FB, etc Several Provinces have them...https://lodgeofbrevity9903.co.uk/a-new-lodge-is-born-the-consecration-of-lodge-of-brevity/
  3. Not to mention that the hall bookings are likely already in place and therefore no issues with trying to get space in an already likely fully booked calendar!
  4. You need to present to your own Province/District why there is a need for such a Lodge. What support there is from Brethren willing to be Founder members and basically put a business case forward. If satisfied that you have the necessary numbers to form a new Lodge and that there is such a need for it, your PGM submit your petition to UGLE for the ascent of the Grand Master. In this day and age, it is far easier and quicker to find a failing Lodge that is about to vote to surrender its Warrant and apply for its removal, effectively taking it over. We did just this to establish a Military Lodge, saving us a lot of time and expense with regards to Lodge equipment, regalia and furnishings, (not forgetting the Lodge banner costs which can be enormous) in the process.
  5. A brevity style lodge aimed at young professionals ISTR
  6. We've got 3 in the pipeline; a service lodge, a daylight Installed Masters lodge, and I can't remember what the 3rd is. And a couple of years ago, a Stewards lodge. The ProvGM is the instigator of all these.
  7. And a Country Sports Lodge to come - covid put paid to that consecration.
  8. Indeed this appears to be the case - and Number 10,000 was recently allocated to the "Young Masons" Lodge In Hampshire (I nearly forgot the "and Isle of Wight", sorry!) we now have the following (the last nine consecrated in Hampshire - and the only ones since 2004): 9878: Pax Hill Lodge (Scouting) 9896: Rugby Bastion Lodge 9903: Lodge of Brevity 9914: Chequered Flag Lodge (Motor racing) 9921: Football Lodge 9932: Spinnaker Lodge (Yachting) 9939: Motorcyclists Lodge 9953: Samuel Cody Aviation Lodge (ironically, not in Farnborough where Cody actually flew, but in Bordon?!) 9969: Vectis Services Lodge (Combined Services, on the IoW) On top of this, there are 7 Installed Masters Lodges...
  9. The first thing that you will have to do is write to the Provincial Grand Lodge of Middlesex to see if it is allowing new Lodges to be consecrated as there was a moritorium put on new Lodges throughout the UGLE some years ago. Nowadays you have to explain why there is a need for a new Lodge, information about the Past Masters and others that will be the Founders and information about the Candidates that you have waiting for it to come about and explain why it will be successful etc. You may have noticed that over the last few years that the only new Lodges have been "special interest" Lodges such as the rugby, football, motoring, etc ones or under the District GLs.
  10. Greetings Brethren. Can anyone send me a link to where I could find information on the procedure for setting up a new Lodge in the Middlesex Province ? I have looked everywhere and found nothing for the Craft but lots for Mark. I have an idea of the costs and subs required but I need an application form and the steps required. I do not want my Secretary to get the wrong idea and the UGLE website has already in two occasions ignored my question even though I identified myself as a Freemason.... Fraternally

    hello from texas

    Thank you.
  16. Charlie Statham and Munchetty acting like silly children as usual. No wonder the BBC is shedding viewers.

  18. Absolutely no reason at all why there should be any change to our rules, especially as there is, and has been for over 100 years, a version of Freemasonry where men and women sit together in Lodge. All you have to do is look at its size compared to the original to see whether it is the "future" or not.
  19. That is a question for the Freemasons where you are in the World. What I can tell you is that any membership of your grandfather or uncle will ONLY have any relevance if they are the ones Proposing you to membership of the Lodges that they are members of. Whether you are accepted or not depends solely on you as a person.
  20. How do I become a freemason, and can I join as a felon? My grandfather and my great uncle were both 33rd degree Freemasons. Any help would be appreciated.
  21. ... and further to Mike's welcome, please be aware that joining this message board does not mean that you are now a Freemason. It's a fairly common misperception that you can join online.
  22. Welcome to the Forum, are you looking to become a Freemason?
  23. Hello my beloved brothers and sisters. My name is Quang Luc Vo, I have decided to register on masonicforum in order to learn and provide my full support in the best of my abilities to the community. It is my hope that through my presence an infinity of opportunities for growth are coming to the masonicforum ecosystem. I would like to thank you for welcoming me within your community. Thank you so much.
  24. The response remains the same, only the Freemasons where you are can tell you the answer.

    hello from texas

    I went to the Grand Lodge and there is no specification for the Holy Book. I was in New York and moved to Texas. I read all the rituals but lost my Texas code book when I became homeless. while I was working I had a dream that revealed the code to me and it worked. I also had a dream revealing the three passwords which weren't in the code book. do you get dreams that become true?
  26. Me too Used to have a group at work; we'd get together once a month for beer, pizza and gaming.
