  1. Good to see an update from you Bro Keith and good to hear you are still doing well
  2. Will be dependent on the trust deeds and rules - there should be a clause relating to dissolution of the fund
  3. Great initiative and exactly how we should be 'shining our light' Out of interest, how many of those who registered actually turned up?
  4. Welcome to the forum, hope you find much of interest
  5. Can't beat the above as a solid answer

    All sound advice so far - your proposer should give you some more detailed pointers nearer the time, but the main items have been covered Look forward to hearing from you after the event
  8. I think this is brilliant and well overdue Often masonic education is left to the individual mason and I am the belief that it should be a core part of what happens in our lodge meetings - the ritual element - I,P, R & Installation are important and there are many valuable lessons in the ceremonies but there is a definite need for education as well - it's great to see an initiative such as this putting it back on the agenda
  9. Didn't realise that Australia had a restriction on full participation until MM Hope all goes well for your raising David
  10. I'm guessing you're in the US of A?
  11. Ever wanted to throw yourself out of a perfectly good 'plane? Now you can! And raise some money in the process https://www.londonmasons.org.uk/skydive
  12. Welcome to the forum Ian - hope you enjoy your time here
  13. A sensory shed that can calm children with special needs was unveiled yesterday (June 13). When the leaders of Leverton School in Waltham Abbey realised it needed a safe place for its special needs pupils to retreat to, they were disheartened when their bids for funding were unsuccessful. That was until a grandfather of one of the pupils heard of their difficulties and pointed them in the direction of the nearby Forester Lodge. The Loughton Freemasons took the cause to their heart and set about raising £1,800 for the project, which was increased to £2,000 following a personal donation by organist Tom Kelly.

  14. As already intimated, a regular GL is unlikely to adopt a lodge from another regular GL An irregular GL will no doubt take you on - but then the regular GL the lodge is part of won't really release the lodge - it's is ultimately their lodge (I use the terms regular and irregular as they are commonly understood, not as a reflection of my own opinions on the matter)
  15. Such a shame Hopefully the hall management are now taking advice from the local fire brigade on how to prevent any further such incidents?
  16. Just checked the Gwent Police website Seems they have one in custody https://www.gwent.police.uk/en/newsroom/story/news/man-arrested-following-hate-crime-offences-in-newport/
  17. That's a shame - I'd seen the reports of the graffiti daubed on the school but didn't see any mention of the attacks on the masonic hall
  18. I was in GQS on the day for another reason - it was very busy!
  19. Welcome - please let us know a little about you and your interest in Freemasonry
  20. Election time again for Italy after the decisions this weekend
  21. Hi Joselito I have been discussing some options with Jayson - I had offered 2nd June but understand you are in Wales that weekend Hope you are able to get something sorted
  22. Hi Bevan - really good to see you back here again and to hear that your masonry is continuing Please feel free to post a link with a synopsis into the Reading Room section - look forward to reading more about it
