UNITED GRAND LODGE OF ENGLAND Grand Master: M.W.Bro. His Royal Highness the Duke of Kent KG, GCMG, GCVO, ADC. Pro Grand Master: M.W.Bro. Peter Geoffrey Lowndes Deputy Grand Master: R.W.Bro. Jonathan Spence Assistant Grand Master: R.W.Bro. Sir David Hugh Wootton Grand Secretary: V.W.Bro. Dr D.R. Staples Freemasons’ Hall, 60 Great Queen Street, LONDON WC2B 5AZ www.ugle.org.uk www.facebook.com/UnitedGrandLodgeofEngland https://twitter.com/UGLE_GrandLodge - @UGLE_GrandLodge

Grand Lodge meets at Freemasons’ Hall on the Second Wednesday in March, June, September and December. The Annual Investiture takes place on the last Wednesday in April. Grand Lodge Library and Museum including the permanent exhibition on the history of English Freemasonry are open to the public on weekdays from 10am to 5pm. Saturday from 10am to 1pm but not on Sundays or Public Holidays (including Saturdays preceding Public Holidays). When the Grand Temple is not in use there are up to five tours per day, Monday to Friday (inclusive). Tours commence at 11am, 12noon, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm, and the starting point for all tours is in the Library and Museum of Freemasonry. Please note: Visitors may be required to show photographic ID before the tour commences. Pre-booking is required for all group tours, and for any tours on Saturdays. Further information is available on the Library and Museum website www.ugle.org.uk. The United Grand Lodge of England currently has over 200,000 members meeting in 6,800 Lodges, which are grouped as follows:

Lodges meeting in London (an area generally within a 10-mile radius of Freemasons’ Hall), are administered by the Metropolitan Grand Lodge of London, which is headed by the Metropolitan Grand Master. Lodges meeting outside London, and within England, Wales, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands, are grouped into 47 Provinces, whose boundaries often correspond to those of the Old Counties, with each headed by a Provincial Grand Master. Lodges that meet outside England, Wales, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands are grouped into 33 Districts, with each headed by a District Grand Master, five Groups (ie: currently too small to make up a District), with each headed by a Grand Inspector, and 12 Lodges abroad which are directly administered by Freemasons’ Hall. The United Grand Lodge of England publishes a Masonic Year Book annually which lists all committees and boards, details for all of its administrative groupings, and all Grand Officers and senior Provincial and District Officers. It also publishes triennially the Directory of Lodges and Chapters, which lists all lodges and their meeting dates and places. Both publications can be purchased from Freemasons’ Hall. The Book of Constitutions (rule book) has been in the public domain since the first edition was published in 1723 and can also be purchased from Freemasons’ Hall.

The RW Provincial Grand Master re-appointed and thanked those Brethren who were continuing in office. He then appointed and invested the Provincial Grand Officers for the ensuing year (below) and conferred promotion to Past Rank on other Brethren (see attached list). 13)

The RW Provincial Grand Master addressed the Brethren: Well Brethren, I hope that you have enjoyed our meeting today and I thank you for taking the opportunity of welcoming our guests that I introduced to you earlier and supporting your Brethren that have received honours. For those standing down from active office, it does not end there, you have entered a new era of supporting your Lodges, your Province and most importantly those Brethren who have just joined us. You have been an excellent year of active officers with two very dedicated Provincial Wardens in WBro Adam Jeffrey and WBro Nick Ruston. A big thank you to all of you from me and the Executive. I am sure we all wish our new Wardens and active officers a very enjoyable year ahead. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank my Deputy and Assistants for the hard work that they contribute to the Province. It means a great deal to us for the support we receive from our past Executive, I particularly thank WBro Derek Webber for presenting most of our fifty-year certificates. Today’s meeting takes a great deal of organizing and most of that rests on the shoulders of our Provincial Secretary, WBro Dr Richard Ebrey, ably assisted by the Assistant Secretary WBro Tony Jordan. I am sure the Brethren of this Province are also deeply grateful for the superb guidance that is so courteously given throughout the year. Our thanks go to our hard-working Provincial Grand Director of Ceremonies who along with his Deputies have calmly and courteously whipped everyone into line. We are also very grateful for the support and guidance that you have given throughout the year. Very special thanks to WBro Howard Pope who is standing down after five years’ service, making two hundred installations! We are all indebted to our Treasurer, WBro Craig Cox, who not only keeps us on target with our budgets by using one simple word NO, but has an uncanny means of projecting our expenditure to keep us solvent: thank you, Craig. To Andy Dewis, our Provincial Grand Tyler, and his team for their muscle power for setting all the equipment up today and taking it all down, a big thank you. Please join with me in congratulating those Brethren that have been appointed to Grand Rank and will attend the annual Investiture in April. First Appointments: WBro Dr Reuben Ayres WBro Dr John Dean WBro Clive Eden WBro Howard Pope WBro Bob Woods WBro John Chandler

We wish you a very happy day in London when both Craft and HRA Executives will be there to support you. I now realize that it is the Holy intervention of our Most Excellent Grand Superintendent that keeps us all in order. The dissemination of information is one of the most important essentials of our Masonic well-being, we should all be very grateful to WBro Peter Keaty APGM Information Officer for overseeing this particular area. He has a great team in WBros Clive Eden, Press Secretary, Paul O’Connell, David Goode, John Smerdon and Jack Parnell: thank you all.

22


I would like to give a very special mention to what is known as the 300 Club, this is made up of those Brethren that were active Provincial Officers during our Tercentenary year. This band of Brothers are always up to something, usually with great enthusiasm and a lot of noise! They have continued since their year to organize all sorts of events to raise money for charity, for which I thank them. That does not mean that all other past active officers have been forgotten, if you have not formed a club from your year, I am sure the 300 Club boys will welcome you to their events. If you can stand the pace! Whilst on the subject of events, I am really grateful to those who responded to my request to organize functions to raise money for the Festival. A very successful dinner coupled with entertainment by our Deputy Provincial Grand Master singing to us was held at the Mount Edgecumbe Centre and well organized by WBro John Pritchard. John is also organizing our Carol service on the 15 December at Plympton and like me welcomes your support. The dinner dance at HMS Drake, organized by Sean Crannis and Colin McKenna was a great success thank you. Another most successful event was the Train trip on the Quantock Belle organized by Craig Cox and to be repeated again this year. Although these trips have dress themes, I am sure he would not mind if you and your partner wear the Provincial fleeces that he is selling, also in aid of the Festival. We are all indebted to our Charity Festival Chairman, WBro Chris Yard; the Festival core committee Secretary, WBro Dr Adrian Rogers; the Provincial Grand Charity Steward, WBro Reuben Ayres; plus WBros Peter Bartlett, Keith Williams and all of the Festival Managers and Festival Friends, for their drive and enthusiasm that they have for your Festival. I strongly recommend that you go to “YouTube” and watch the videos produced by Reuben and Adrian which help explain our reasons for supporting the Festival. Brethren I want to mention at this stage a pastime that many of us do not enjoy: drinking beer. I have got to compliment WBro Alan Gill on his hard work at promoting our Festival Beer and coming to an arrangement with Bro. Richard Smith at Dartmoor Brewery enabling us to raise a considerable amount of money, despite not many of us drinking beer! (Laughter.) Brethren, thank you for supporting us with the 2023 Festival. Many Brethren and Lodges have worked hard to launch the festival and we have generated pledges approaching our first £1 million. I am so proud of our Province and you Brethren. I should reiterate that this is your festival and we are paying back some of the £1,000 we receive each day to support Devonshire Brethren and their dependents in time of need. I appeal to you all to support this Festival by subscribing to wear a Festival Jewel; this can be done for a very reasonable amount of £5.00 per month. Be proud to wear your jewel and remember that none of us knows what the future may bring or when we may need help. Another area covered by WBro Chris Yard is the Masonic Widows Associations, sadly two are about to close: Manadon in Plymouth and Tiverton. The memberships have decreased and they struggle to find officers to run them. We urge Lodges in those areas to maintain a close link with the unrepresented widows. We must give a very special vote of thanks to WBro Keith Bower who coordinates Teddies for loving care. Keith, his team and your Lodges have done us proud in supporting this scheme. We have now donated over 50,000 teddies to many deserving cases and I thank you all for yet another display of Masonic kindness and increasing our public awareness. I once again pay tribute to our Provincial Almoner WBro Bob Munro his two assistants, WBros Peter Durrant and Les Pym, who do a tremendous amount of work, along with the Visiting Volunteers who uphold a very high standard of support for those in need. Another very important scheme in our Province is that of the Visiting Grand Officers, of which there are currently 59 assigned to our Lodges in the Province. I am of the firm belief that this scheme is a very important and integral part of the wellbeing of all of our Lodges. I cannot thank our VGOs enough for their loyal and devoted support of all of our initiatives and especially promoting the 2023 Festival.

23


There are two Brethren who have accumulated a great deal of information to add to their own expertise on the welfare and management of our Buildings, they are WBros Eric Collings and Walker Lapthorne, who have been working for some time now in conjunction with the guidance being given by our Grand Superintendent of Works at Grand Lodge. Brethren I am sure they will be more than pleased to give any assistance should it be needed. There cannot be a more important initiative prepared for our guidance by Grand Lodge than the Membership Pathway. You have all heard this mentioned and I urge you to familiarize yourself with its content. WBro Colin Gale, amongst all his other tasks, is overseeing this project with WBro Mark Lewis, our newly-appointed Provincial Membership Officer, along with his team. Colin has already circulated all lodges with more detailed information and he is delighted with the response he has received from many of you. Along with his team two workshops will be held in November this year. It is essential that your lodges are represented. The Pathway is not just about gaining prospective members, it also gives good advice on how to secure the future of your lodge.

Following on from the launch of the Members’ Pathway from Grand Lodge a new and exciting learning initiative, appropriately named Solomon, was also launched by the Improvement Delivery Group. Solomon is a comprehensive and varied collection of Masonic material, comprised of short nuggets, as well as lectures, papers and demonstrations which are all suitable for presentations and discussion. It has been designed to be easily accessed online by Lodge Mentors or by an individual Brother. The information available has a variety of uses whether it is for personal learning, curiosity or to further your knowledge on any aspect of Freemasonry. It is an enormous database which is being continuously refreshed with contributions from sources countrywide. Responsible for this initiative, WBro Charles Yelland APGM, WBro Chris Thomas, Provincial Grand Mentor and the EDMENCOM Team are very keen to introduce this to all Lodges. Presentations that have been done have been very well received. Later in the year joint workshops will take place with the Membership and Recruitment team where Brethren will be invited to take advantage of this exciting new resource. Our Freemasonry is for our enjoyment, yes it does have a serious message to us all, it has deep and meaningful teachings. It is not for us to scorn and criticize when a brother struggles with the work. We must be positive and offer encouragement. Brethren you are very special people, very precious to me and our Province and I thank you for all that you do in and out of Lodge. Have a safe journey home. 14)

Other business: The Provincial Grand Secretary reported that a number of apologies for absence had been received from Brethren, from both this Province and others, all of which had been duly recorded. Presentations for the MCF Festival were received from the Provincial Grand Wardens of 2018 and WBro Alan Gill PPrSGW. The date of the next meeting was announced as Monday 20 April 2020.

15)

Provincial Grand Lodge was closed in due form and during the Closing Hymn a collection was taken for the forthcoming MCF 2023 Festival. The first verse of the National Anthem was subsequently sung. The Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master, accompanied by the Most Excellent Grand Superintendent, and other distinguished guests retired in due form.

In all other cases the By-Laws must be submitted for the approval of the Grand Master. No By-Law can override an express provision of the Book of Constitutions. A Lodge may have only a single meeting place specified in its Warrant and its By-Laws.

2.

The Election meeting must be the regular meeting immediately preceding the Installation Meeting.

3.

A Lodge may, by annual resolution, resolve that a subscribing member shall by Tyler without emolument, but this must not be e mbodied as a requirement in its By-Laws.

4.

Forming a Committee is a domestic matter and, while the principle officers are obviously necessary (and other Officers than those named below are permissible), the words ‘Past Masters of’ or ‘Past Masters of and in’ the Lodge may be omitted or their number restricted, e.g. two ‘of’ and one ‘in’. Other members should only be included if the Lodge considers them essential. The most effective Committee is often small. The same applies to the quorum and it is advantageous if it is an odd number.

5.

It is strongly recommended that the Audit Committee be small, say two or three members.

6.

The audited accounts must be presented no later than the third meeting after the date to which the accounts are made up.

7.

A fee, unlike a subscription, is a single ‘one-off’ payment and, again unlike a subscription, must be of an amount specified in the By-Laws. Though a relatively nominal amount for a joining or re-joining fee may be appropriate, a nil amount will not be approved.

8.

It is strongly recommended that the words contained within the square brackets, though optional, be incorporated into the By-Laws, as that will obviate the need for regular increases in fees. See Rule 163 (j), Book of Constitutions. If used, the words must be included in their entirety.

9.

The subscription due date must be the first day of a calendar month. If the subscription is exclusive of dining fees the reference to non-dining should be deleted from By-Laws 6 and 7. The paragraph should then read:-

‘The annual subscription due payable in advance on 1st…………………………………….and exclusive of dining fees, shall be of such amount as the Lodge shall from time to time decide by resolution after notice on the summons at the previous regular meeting. The fees for members and visitors at dinners shall be such amounts as the Lodge shall from time to time decide from time to time decide by resolution after notice on the summons at the previous regular meeting.’ As an alternative to the last sentence above, and if appropriate, the wording may be amended to:- ‘The fees for members and visitors for dining shall be ‘at cost’. The members can be informed of the dining fee by a separate not included with the summons for each meeting. 10.

While Rule 104(c), Book of Constitutions, allows for the Secretary’s services to be equivalent to payment of subscription, this is an option for the Lodge to adopt, as is the provision for the Master’s privilege to invite guests at the Lodge’s expense.

11.

The minimum time period for excluding a member from the Lodge for non-payment of subscription that will receive approval is three months. See Rules 145 and 181, Book of Constitutions. There will be no advantage to the Lodge if the period stated is one calendar year or more.

12.

If By-Law 6 is amended as shown in Note 9 above the last sentence of By-Law 7 should refer to the ‘current dining fee’.

13.

Not more than three. See Rule 165, Book of Constitutions.

14.

It is suggested that the amount be high enough to be realistic, but not so high as to allow undue latitude. A recommended fig ure would be in the range of £100 to £250.

15.

The words in square brackets must be omitted in the case (but only in the case) of an unattached Lodge.

No Brother can hold more than one regular office in the Lodge at one and the same time, but the Master may appoint a Brother who is holding a regular office to one additional office also. [NB Mentor now included] *Membership Officer will need to be included w.e.f. 2021 (noted for future reference and will be positioned after the Charity Steward but before the Mentor….see table below). Rule 104 (d) reads: The Officers of a Lodge shall take precedence for investure and otherwise in the following order: Master, Senior Warden, Juni or Warden, Chaplain (if any), Treasurer, Secretary, Director of Ceremonies (if any), Almoner, Charity Steward, Mentor, Senior Deacon, Junior Deacon, Assistant Director of Ceremonies (if any), Organist (if any), Assistant Secretary (if any), Inner Guard, Steward (if any), and Tyler.

The Immediate Past Master, as such, is not an officer of the Lodge. He holds his position and responsibilities by virtue of his Mastership, and retains that position until a succeeding Master becomes Immediate Past Master.

WHAT IS FREEMASONRY Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest secular fraternal societies and the following notes are intended to explain Freemasonry as it is practiced under the United Grand Lodge of England, which administers Lodges of Freemasons in England and Wales and in many places overseas. Freemasonry is a society of men concerned with moral and spiritual values. Its members are taught is precepts by a series of ritual dramas, which follow ancient forms and use stonemasons’ customs and tools as allegorical guides. The essential qualification for admission into and continuing membership is a belief in a Supreme Being. Memberships is open to any race or religion who can fulfil this essential qualification and are of good repute. Freemasonry is not a religion, nor is it a substitute for religion. Its essential qualification opens it to men of many relig ions and it expects them to continue to follow their own faith. It does not allow religion to be discussed at its meetings. For many years Freemasons have followed three great principles: Brotherly Love Relief Truth

Every true Freemason will show tolerance and respect for the opinions of others and behave with kindness and under standing to his fellow creatures. Freemasons are taught to practice charity, and to care, not only for their own, but also for the community as a whole, both by charitable giving and by voluntary efforts and works as individuals. Freemasons strive for the truth, requiring high moral standards and aiming to achieve them in their own live s .

Freemasons believe that these principles represent a way of achieving higher standards in life. Charity From its earliest days, Freemasonry has been concerned with the care of orphans, the sick and the aged. This work continues today and in addition, large sums are given to National and Local Charities. Freemasonry demands from its members a respect for the law of the country in which a man works and lives. Its principles do n ot in any way conflict with its members duties as citizens, but should strengthen them in fulfiling their Public and Private responsibilities. The use by a Freemason of his membership to promote his own or anyone else’s business, professional or personal interests is condemned and is contrary to the conditions on which he seeks admission to Freemasonry. His duty as a citizen must always prevail over any obligation to other Freemasons, and any attempt to shield a Freemason who had acted dishonourably or unlawfully is contrary to this prime duty. The Secrets of Freemasonry are concerned with its traditional modes of recognition. It is not a Secret Society since all its members are free to acknowledge their membership and will do so in response to inquiries for respectable reasons. Its constitutions and rules are available to the public. there is no secret about any of its aims ad principles. Like many other societies, it regards some of its internal affairs as private matters for its members . Freemasonry is Non-political and the discussion of Politics at Masonic meetings is forbidden. Freemasonry is practiced under many independent Grand Lodges with standards similar to those set by the United Grand Lodge of England. There are some Grand Lodges and other apparently Masonic bodies which do not meet these standards, e.g., which do not require a belief in a Supreme Being or which allow or encourage their members as such to participate in political matters. These Grand Lodges and bodies are not rec ognised by the United Grand Lodge of England as being masonically regular and masonic contact with them is forbidden. Conclusion.

A Freemason is encouraged to do his duty to his God (by whatever name he is known) through his faith and religious practice and then, without detriment to his family and those dependent on him, to his neighbour through charity and service.

None of these ideas is exclusively Masonic, but all should be universally acceptable. Freemasons are expected to follow them. Reprinted from the Board of General Purposes Leaflet “What is Freemasonry” published by the United Grand Lodge of England, October, 1984.

WHAT A CANDIDATE SHOULD KNOW In February, 1960, a paper was given to the London rank Association by W.Bro. H. J. Crawford. In it it is suggested that befo re his interview a Candidate should be given, by his proposer, some idea as to what is involved. The following notes are a precise of this and other papers which should be of help. 1.

Masonry is not a secret society but a society with some secrets, it is a brotherhood of men branded together not only to preserve the secrets, customs and ceremonials handed down over the ages but also for the purpose of mutual intellectual, social and moral improvement. The ideals are the cultivation of brotherly love, relief and truth, not only amongst themselves but to the World at large.

2.

To be a Freemason it is essential that the Candidate believes in a Supreme Being.

3.

In Freemasonry there are no distinctions of religion, but members should cultivate their own religion and loyalties to their own country. Members should not discuss religious or political questions in Lodge or in their capacity as a Freemason.

4.

Freemasonry is not to be used for commercial, pecuniary or social gain.

5.

Freemasonry has certain Charities, but is not a charitable institution or benefit society and whilst it should not be taken as a form of insurance for dependants and no one has a claim on the charities, they are there to assist those who having been in good circumstance, have, through no fault of their own, been overtaken by misfortune or adversity.

6.

After his duty to God, a man’s first duty to his wife, his family and connections. Therefore no one should join the Order who cannot well afford to pay the initiation fees and subscriptions to his Lodge as well as reasonable contributions to the Masonic Charities and without detriment to his dependants. Arising from these points it is therefore essential that a candidate should be well assured in his own mind:

7.

(a) That he believes in God. (b) That he sincerely desires the intellectual and moral improvement of himself and his fellow creatures. (c) That he is willing to devote part of him time, his means and his efforts in the promotion of brotherly love, relief and truth. (d) That he seeks no commercial or pecuniary advantage. (e) That he can afford the necessary expenditure and time without injury to himself or his family.

Arising from this there are certain duties that the proposer and seconder should undertake. They should explain that Masonic Ceremonies formerly involved an oath known as the ‘obligation’ which was taken on the Bible or the Volume of the Sacred Law according to his Faith and which contained reference to certain penalties. It should also be pointed out that these penalties , which came down to us from the past, were meaningful only in so far that from them certain parts of the subsequent ceremony derived their symbolism which, in turn , was meant to impress on the Candidate the binding nature of the obligation.

39


INFORMATION FOR SECRETARIES OF LODGES Ballots Separate Ballots must be taken for Master and Treasurer. Previous to these Ballots there must be no formal nomination or seconding of any particular Brother. A collective Ballot for Candidates is regular, provided that, if there be one black ball, each Candidate should be balloted for individually. Ballots for Joining Members should not be taken with Ballots on Candidates for Initiation: AND PROPOSED INITIATION.

A

The Secretary should always have at hand copies of the Book of Constitutions, and the By-Laws. A copy of each must be given to a Candidate immediately after his initiation. A Copy of the By-Laws must be given to a Joining member immediately on his becoming a Member (Rule 138). Candidates for Initiation The full name and date of birth of an initiate, the profession or occupation and address, together with the name and address of business, with the names of the proposer and seconder, must appear on the summons and in the Minutes. To advise any approved Candidate of the date and hour when his attendance will be required for Initiation. No candidate can be proposed or balloted for at a Lodge of Emergency, except as provided for in Rule 160. A Joining Member ca nnot under any circumstances be proposed or balloted for except at a regular meeting (Rule 163). in the case of a Candidate for Initiation into a Lodge in a locality where he does not reside or where he has no place of emp loyment, enquiry as to his suitability must be made at the Lodge(s) in the locality of his residence or principal place of employment. Such a Candidate must state in writing his reasons for wishing to join the Lodge and his reasons for not wishing to join a Lodge where he resides or has his principal place of employment (Rule 158). F ailure to make such enquiry may cause Grand Lodge to declare a Ballot on such a Candidate null and void. Clearance Certificate Every Brother is entitled to a certificate stating (a) that he is indebted to the Lodge, and (b) that if he has resigned or been excluded, the reason for the cessation of his membership, and also that any indebtedness to the Lodge has been discharged (Rule 175).

Before a Lodge of Emergency can be summoned, a Dispensation must be obtai ned from the Provincial Grand Master through the Provincial Grand Secretary. The summons of a Lodge of Emergency must state that the meeting is being held under a Dispensation. The only business which can be taken at such a meeting is as stated on the Summons.

INFORMATION FOR SECRETARIES OF LODGES—continued

Joining Members The particulars to be given on the summons are set out in Rule 164. Members joining from another Constitution must take the obligation set out in Rule 163. Every Candidate for joining membership must produce his Grand Lodge Certificate and a clearance certificate from each Lodge of which he is or has been a subscribing member the clearance certificate, together with the Brother’s Grand Lodge Certificate, is to be handed to the Master before the Ballot is taken. As a Fellow craft and Entered Apprentice do not have a Grand Lodge Certificate they may only become joining members with special approval from the Grand Secretary. Please discuss this with the Provincial Grand Secretary. Proposals and Ballots for joining members must be at Regular Meetings only. Lodge Property An inventory of the property of the Lodge should be taken annually and signed by the incoming Master. Master The Secretary should be in very close contact with the Master of the Lodge. On the day named in the By-Laws for the election of Master, the Secretary must be prepared with a list of subscribing members who have served the office of Master or Warden which must be read previous to the Election.

Meetings Every meeting prescribed by the By-Laws must be summoned and held on the proper day except as provided for in Rule 139. To issue the summons to every member seven clear days before the appointed day of meeting and forward copies to the Provincial Grand Master, the Deputy and Assistant Provincial Grand Masters and to the Provincial Grand Secretary. Minutes In recording proceedings the Minutes should commence as follows: ‘The Lodge was opened in due form with solemn prayer’. The Lodge being thus opened. the Minute of the last Regular and any intervening Emergency Meeting are read, confirmed and signed by the Master. If the Lodge is further opened, the degrees are to be distinctly state, similar records made as to closing, and finally, it must be recorded that the Lodge was closed in due form. The Minutes, as a record of the business of the Lodge, should be drawn up concisely; reference can be made to the various ceremonies, with the names of those Officers taking part therein, but nothing should appear in contravention of the Book of Constitutions. The Lodge Minute Book must be properly bound. It is not in order to use a loose leaf Minute Book.

The Minutes of Regular Meetings cannot be read at a Lodge of Emergency and no business except that named in the summons can be transacted there at (Rule 140). According to Rule 144, the names of all members and visiting Brethren present at a meeting shall be recorded in the Minute Book. Past Masters & Brethren The Provincial Grand Secretary should be kept fully informed on the change of any Past Master or Brother. Provincial Grand Ranks All Offices in Grand Lodge and Provincial Grand Lodge are ‘Grand’. Works like ‘Deputy’ or ‘Assistant’ should precede ‘Grand’,e.g. PAGDC or PPrAGDC. Quarterly Communications The Secretary should closely study the proceedings of Grand Lodge and, at the appropriate meetings, draw the attention of the Lodge to the proceedings of Grand Lodge. Grand Lodge will indicate those parts of the Proceedings recommended to be read in Lodge. It is suggested that an item ‘To report on proceedings of Grand Lodge’ should appear on the summons. Resignation A member may resign his membership either by notice in writing to the Secretary or orally in Lodge (Rule 183). Returns To the Grand Secretary and Provincial Grand Secretary: a return of Master, Wardens and Past Masters to be forwarded immediately after the Installation Meeting. Without it the registers of Grand Lodge, which show the names of members who are entitled to attend Grand Lodge, cannot be made up, and Brethren may consequently be refused admission by the scrutineers. Moreover, those Brethren will be disqualified from voting in the Provincial Grand Lodge. ANNUAL RETURNS OF MEMBERS To the Grand Secretary: a list of all subscribing members with annual dues payable made up to the last day of March, June, September or December, in date order of their admission or readmission into the Lodge. To the Provincial Grand Secretary: a similar list at the end of the year for which the Annual Subscription is payable. Every name that appeared upon the previous return must be accounted for when a member ceases to subscribe, the cause, whether it be by resignation, death or exclusion,must be stated in the next return. Forms for Grand Lodge Returns and Books of Constitution are to be obtained from the Grand Secretary. Royal Arch Chapter As the Royal Arch Chapter is part of English Freemasonry, this Degree should be kept before the notice of all Brethren.

AMENDMENTS TO LODGE BY-LAWS Amendments to Lodge By-Laws should be made in accordance with the recommendations of Grand Lodge's Model By-Laws, copies of which may be obtained from the Provincial Office. Continued……….

INFORMATION FOR SECRETARIES OF LODGES - continued GAVEL The Master must offer his Gavel to the Grand Master, Deputy Grand Master, Assistant Grand Master, Provincial Grand Master, Deputy Provincial Grand Master, Assistant Provincial Grand Masters, and to no other person. Only the Master and his Wardens should use the Gavel, both in Lod ge and at Dinner. The Master may, if necessary, sound the Gavel at Dinner for the D. of C. It follows that the Tyler may not use the Gavel during the Tyler’s Toast. When Officers of Grand Lodge enter or retire from the Lodge, the D.C. should call the Brethren “To Order” and refrain from the use of the word “upstanding”. Do not refer to the Masters of Lodges as ‘Reigning Masters’. APPOINTMENTS TO PROVINCIAL RANK 1.

The number of Appointments which can be made each year is governed by Rules 67 to 70 B.C.

2.

Honours are not given automatically after a Brother has occupied the Chair; the conferment of Rank is the prerogative of and entirely a matter in the discretion of the R.W. Provincial Grand Master.

3.

An appointment is made in respect of an individual’s merits, not in respect of the merits of his Lodge.

4.

In assessing the merits of a Brother, particular regard is paid to the interest he has shown in his Lodge affairs, and his se rvices to his Lodge since he has passed the Chair, as well as for regular and uninterrupted attendance.

5.

The Honour conferred on a Brother is that of being appointed one of the Officers, whether acting or past, of the Provincial Grand Lodge, irrespective of the rank of the office.

6.

Rank is not only a reward for past service, but is to be regarded as an opportunity and incentive for further service to Masonry.

ATTENDANCE AT LODGES OVERSEAS The Board is informed from time to time of Members of Lodges who go abroad and become involved, generally through ignorance, with Masonic bodies not recognised as regular by the United Grand Lodge. The Board wishes to draw attention to this danger, and to point out that the best method of combating it is for Lodges to impress upon their Members that they should not make any Masonic contacts overseas with members of other Jurisdictions without having ascertained by application to the Grand Secretary at Freemasons’ Hall the existence of regular Masonry in the Country concerned, and the address to which Masonic enquiries in that Country should be directed. The Board recommends not only that this warning be given in Lodge verbally, particularly to each new Master Mason when his Certificate is presented, but that it should be printed at least once a year on Lodge Summonses. SUCH ENQUIRIES MUST BE DIRECTED THROUGH THE PROVINCIAL OFFICE.

42


REGISTRATION FORMS The Registration Form P for every Initiate, Joiner and Rejoiner must be forwarded to the Provincial Office for registration purposes IMMEDIATELY after Initiation or election. The form for the new Initiates must have a cheque for the Grand Lodge Registration Fee made payable to the United Grand Lodge of England. After registration the Provincial Office will forward the form and any cheque to Grand Lodge. For those forms received at Grand Lodge after 1st January 2018 the amount will be £70.80 inc VAT irrespective of when the initiation took place. No fee is payable to Provincial Grand Lodge at this stage for Joiners or Rejoiners. Joiners from foreign constitutions are treated the same as initiates as far as registration fees are concerned. Please check the Grand Lodge fee for them as it may be different. Secretaries should ensure that the form has been completed correctly by the candidate and the proposer and seconder and signed by the Master before ballot is taken. The Certificate of the Secretary and the Amount Due sections must also be completed on the last page. Grand Lodge will return forms for completion where an insufficient description (e.g. Retired ,Director or Civil Servant) is stated for Profession/Occupation, or where a Joining Member fails to list ALL previous Craft Lodge memberships, no matter how brief or distant they may have been. Please do not send these forms direct to Grand Lodge. They should be forwarded to the Provincial Office IMMEDIATELY after the ceremony of initiation or the ballot has been taken for admission of a joining or rejoining member. Applications Form for a Grand Lodge Certificate LP & A5 This form should be completed after the candidate’s Raising and sent direct to Grand Lodge immediately after the ceremony. This form may now be sent to Grand Lodge by email. Request an electronic form from registration@ugle.org.uk

Annual Returns This is sent to the Secretary by Grand Lodge just before the end of the Lodge financial year. The form should be checked very carefully to ensure that all members are shown. The entry of those members who have died, resigned or been excluded during the year should be annotated with the reaso n and date. Fees are payable for them as they were members at the beginning of the financial year. On occasions the last few candidates for initiation and joining may be missing from the end of the return. These should be written in at the end. This is because either Grand Lodge has prepared the return before the form rea ched them or it has not been sent. If the latter is the case then the form should be sent to the Provincial Office immediately. The appropriate dues for those who have been written in should be added to the total. The forms and a cheque for the Grand Lodge dues, made payable to the United Grand Lodge of England, should be sent to the Provincial Office. The Provincial Grand Lodge Annual Return with a cheque made payable to the Provincial Grand Lodge of Devonshire. The fee paya ble currently is £10.00 per member with effect from 1st December 2020 and is reviewed annually. In addition a registration fee of £7.50 is payable at thi s time for every initiate and joiner and rejoiner during the year in addition to the £10.00. The method of arriving at the amount payable should be displayed as shown EXAMPLE :

25 2 -2

Members Initiates Joiners Re Joiners

= = = = =

£250.00 £15.00 ——— £15.00 £280.00

A copy should be retained by the Lodge secretary. Please note that is the actual date for those who have died, resigned or have been excluded is required in full. Also note that Cessation is the term used by Grand Lodge when a member is two years in arrears, as per rule 148, but Excluded is Rule 181 before 2 years. Installation Returns These are two completely different forms. One for Grand Lodge and another for Provincial Grand Lodge. Both forms should be co mpleted and sent to the Provincial Office immediately after the Installation. This is essential as the Master and Wardens will be refused entry to a meeting of Grand Lodge if it has not been sent and auctioned. These details are checked at the entry doors of Grand Lodge prior to the meeting. The pre-printed Provincial Form should be checked and completed and also sent immediately to the Provincial Office. On the first page please include the forenames of the Master and Wardens with telephone numbers where possible. The entries for the Secretary, GP Representative, Charity Steward and Almoner are shown at the bottom. Please write in the changes where appropriate if there is a change of officer or address. The names and addresses of Past Masters of and in the lodge are shown on the reverse. Please change where necessary. Please note that it is not necessary to include the Province in which a person received his Provincial Rank or the year in which he was Master of another lodge. This detail is already held and is not shown due to lack of space. Also ple ase include the actual date for those omitted for the first time and the reason (death, resignation, exclusion or cessation). Cessation is the termed used by Grand Lodge when a member is 2 years in arrears as per Rule 148. Assessment Forms These are sent out by the Provincial Office each June for those due for consideration for appointment or promotion to Provinc ial Office. Full instructions are included with them as well as a blank form. Do not use the previous year’s form as the form is always subject to review and change. Year Book An individual, computer generated LINK is e-mailed to every Lodge Secretary, allowing them to access, a Google Drive Spreadsheet. This represents your Lodge Page in The Devonshire Freemasons’ Year Book, It requires The Secretary to enter all Lodge personnel details, and relevant Po stal addresses, Telephone, and email details of those in major offices. This page should be maintained constantly, with a copy forwarded to our book printer annually, to create the next book. Repo content error to The Editor. Editor’s email: pgldevonshire.yearbook@gmail.com Other In order that the office records can be kept up to date would the Secretary please inform the Provincial Office of all changes of address, death, resignations or exclusions along with the relevant dates which the events occurred, FOR ALL MEMBERS at the earliest possible opportunity. This can be done by letter or email to any of the following addresses. The Province uses the addresses for a number of purposes including the dispatch of the Devon Mason and it is important that they are correct.

office@pgldevonshire.org.uk As a general reminder I would also point out that it is not permissible to ballot for and initiate a candidate on the same night, and that the ballot for a Candidate MUST follow at the next regular meeting of the lodge, otherwise it lapses and he must be Proposed again.

2. Fundraise Here are just a few ways to raise money and have fun at the same time:

Take part in a sponsored challenge

Organise a quiz night or a raffle

Host a dinner party, BBQ or themed event

Arrange a social event such as an evening of music or entertainment

Sponsorship Sponsored events are a very popular, fun and effective way of raising money. Most events involve setting a personal challenge and then asking friends and family members to make charitable donations to encourage fundraisers to achieve their goal. Events can take many forms and can include both physical challenges, such as fun runs or endurance bike rides, and daring challenges, such as skydives or abseils. The Relief Chest Scheme provides printed and digital sponsorship materials to make it easy for fundraisers to hit their targets. Top tip: Take the hassle out of collecting sponsorship by setting up an online fundraising page on the MCF website. Remember to share a link to your fundraising page using email or social media and keep your friends up-to-date through regular posts, images or videos.

The Objectives of this Charity are: The Masonic Fishing Charity aims to provide an interactive fishing (coarse & fly) and countryside experience for anyone over the age of eleven with special needs. This is far more than just a day’s fishing though: The branch helps people in Devon with physical impairments to participate in a sport that might otherwise be unavailable to them; it allows disadvantaged children to meet new challenges and gain a sense of achievement whilst increasing their self-esteem; it assists people with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties to develop their confidence and social skills; and, it gives joy and a sense of fulfilment to children and adults with life limiting conditions. Guests are assisted by caster/helpers who will involve them as much as possible with the casting, retrieving, hooking, playing and landing of the fish; whilst, non-fishing helpers will assist with catering and administration. At the end of each event guests are presented with a certificate of achievement as well as prizes for biggest fish etc. The events are funded totally by donations from Freemasons and there is no charge to participants, their organisations or volunteers. If you are a fly fisherman or a course fisherman and would like to: help as a Caster/Helper (beginners are very welcome and coaching is provided free of charge); make a donation; or, assist the branch in an administrative role please contact the Branch Chairman and or Secretary.
