  1. Thank you Mike, yes he is a member of a UGLE Lodge. I was told at the FB any questions put to him in his Craft lodge was answered by a deacon.
  2. This evening in lodge was a total farce, he did not say anything, the senior deacon said it for him. the obligation was just quoted to him. I had difficulty in getting him to follow what I was asking him to do, therefore I just continued to the end without him he just stood there. I feel that if I say something I will get myself in trouble, so it is best to let things go.
  3. Tonight we are advancing a young man, who I am told for some medical reason fell into a coma. For how long I don't know as I did not attend commttee meeting to discuss this person joining my Mark Lodge. However having come out of his coma I am told he is brain damaged. His father managed to get him into his craft lodge and from what I understand it was very difficult putting him through the three ceremonies. Tonight I am relating the secrets to him, and I feel uncomfortable, as I feel he should not be a member. However other people who have met him at interview think different. His dad is not a member of my lodge, but will be JD for the evening to support his son, so both Deacons will be taking him through the ceremony.
  4. I am going into the chair again for the third time. This time I want it to be special in that I have to put on three social evenings. I want to get away from the usual dinner and a raffle event, Big band nights had them coming out of our ears. What event have you had which you enjoyed and was a success. Many Thanks Medic
  5. A paper came around regarding giving toasts along with fire when nonmasons are present. My lodge does allow ladies to join us at our festive board. The paper stated that it was up to each lodge to decide how they want to deal with this. when you consider that we have ladies serving us at the festive board, they get to hear and see all, so why not our wives, partners etc. My lodge has rejected the idea.
  6. I attended a meeting the other night put on by the provincial team describing a plan on how to attract new members, and to retain them. It seems that in my province, we are losing just on 100 members a year. Mostly for genuine reason very few for disenchantment. What was in the plan, is not new as many ideas were being implemented by many lodges, it was only the few lodges that stated they have not had not a new member for years. Is this Pathway Nation wide have other heard of it?
  7. While on holiday this year, I met a gentleman who recognised my signage ring. Over lunch and in the bar of the hotel for two weeks he asked about Freemasonry and from the tone of his questions, he had done some research. He was keen to join but did not know how to and I said I would help him. As he lived in the Northampton area I managed to get a member of the Provincial team to contact him. Which they did and as it turned out the lodge he is joining the treasuer went to school with him. He is being initiated in November and I will be attending, and I am doing the charge after initiation by kind permission of the lodge. All this through wearing a signage ring.
  8. I practice in the car, but the best place is in bed, as it helps me to sleep!

    I welcome the new forum, and I have turned over a new leaf.
  10. At a meeting the other night, I heard two brethren saying that some high ranking person has had to resign from the fraternity has he had been caught up in a police sting involving child abuse. These two brethren were visitors so I did not intervene.Has anybody heard something similar, or any truth to the story? I hope not!
