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.

Ebrey PAGDC, Provincial Grand Secretary Provincial Grand Lodge was opened in due form with Solemn Prayer at 2pm. The Provincial Grand Master was saluted according to his rank and ancient custom, after which he welcomed those present, commenting that the meeting was being held in the Provincial Office and with just a quorum of Brethren because of restrictions arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. A large number of distinguished guests would have normally been welcomed to the meeting but the prevailing Government guidelines and UGLE recommendations precluded this.

To confirm the Annual Reports, as previously circulated: Provincial Grand Treasurer Provincial Grand Secretary Provincial Grand Charity Steward Provincial Grand Almoner Hon. Secretary of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Devonshire Benevolent Fund Their adoption was proposed by WBro PJM Keaty and seconded by WBro CR Yelland. All were in favour and the reports were approved and adopted. The Provincial Grand Master expressed his gratitude to the authors of those reports for their hard work on behalf of the Province during the preceding year.

Election of Provincial Grand Treasurer: there being only one nomination, WBro Paul O’Connell, Provincial Grand Treasurer, of Miles Coverdale Lodge No. 5069, was elected Provincial Grand Treasurer for the ensuing year.

Appointment of Provincial Grand Officers. The RW Provincial Grand Master remarked that, due to the pandemic caused by COVID-19, all officers were deemed to have taken up their appointments w.e.f. 20 April, the original date planned for the Provincial meeting which fell during the MW Grand Master’s suspension of Masonic activity. Prevailing guidelines to prevent transmission of the virus precluded any assembly of that size (and subsequently reduced to 6 persons max. after this meeting). RWBro Kingsbury confirmed the reappointment of his Deputy and Assistant Provincial Grand Masters: VWBro Nicholas Ball PGSwdB to Deputy PGM WBro Peter JM Keaty PSGD to Assistant PGM WBro Colin C Gale PSGD to Assistant PGM WBro Charles R Yelland PSGD to Assistant PGM WBro Craig A Cox PSGD to Assistant PGM and re-iterated his grateful thanks to the Executive for their tremendous assistance and support during the difficult year so far. The RW Provincial Grand Master thanked those other Brethren who were also continuing in office. RW Bro Kingsbury expressed his hopes that the incidence of the virus would decrease soon so that we might resume some normality, thus allowing the active officers to support and represent him and his Executive at Installations and on other Provincial duties. On this occasion, the RW Provincial Grand Master did not address the few Brethren present, expressing his intention to instead publish and circulate an address. The Annual Meeting of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Devonshire was closed in due form and with Solemn Prayer.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE PROVINCIAL GRAND SECRETARY…

No one would have believed in the middle months of 2019 that this world was going to be so affected by such a microscopic entity. Without fear of contradiction, 2020 was one of the most memorable years of my Masonic membership, albeit unfortunately for most of the wrong reasons. Barely had the ink dried on my last report, written towards the end of December 2019, when news of an approaching pandemic was first heard. After the first cases in the UK at the end of January, a growing sense of unease became apparent amongst members and the general population. Initial reports of the infection being spread by close physical contact and a greater vulnerability in the older population did not bode at all well for Freemasonry. In conjunction with the other main Masonic Orders, the MW The Grand Master ordered a suspension of all Masonic activity to the relief of many. Summer soon turned into autumn and brought a brief respite, although most Masonic centres felt themselves unable to achieve compliance with the very strict measures required and did not re-open. Quite how soon those measures will alter due to the introduction of the vaccine programme (being launched as I write) is uncertain although I am optimistic that some meetings will resume before the year is out. Consequently, other than in the first ten weeks of 2020, almost no Masonic meetings have taken place. All, or almost all, Masters have found themselves remaining in Office as Installation meetings could not been held (one Master in the Province was already serving a third year by Dispensation which may yet become a fourth). Similarly, no new members have been initiated but deaths and resignations still occur, with a concomitant decrease in our numbers. Although news has reached me of a number members suffering infection with COVID-19, I have heard of few deaths directly attributable to it. In fact, quite curiously, the number of deaths amongst members that have been notified to us is down by around 35% compared with the average for the same period over the last three years (Mar-Nov, 20172020). There has been a similar reduction in resignations, but I expect this will ‘normalise’ once lodges return to meeting and any pending announcements have been made. Brethren have risen to the challenge in an admirable way, contributing practical help in many different ways by manufacturing protective equipment and hand sanitiser, helping to feed those less fortunate than ourselves, and most recently the offer of assistance from the Widow’s Sons Masonic Bikers. Our strong tradition of fund-raising for good causes, which has also been enthusiastically and creatively maintained during the various lockdowns and restrictions, has seen terrific support from lodges. Our fraternal bonds, although tested by not being able to meet, have been maintained using many newly available technologies such as Zoom, Teams etc., as well the usual means like the telephone. Some Brethren living on their own have told me how welcome this has been. Informal Zoom meetings are fulfilling the role of the lodge’s committee meetings, which I can see continuing after the pandemic, but I should point out that a lodge cannot hold formal meetings by Zoom under the current guidelines from UGLE, nor can any ballots/votes be taken at committee meetings (whether in Zoom or the ‘real’ world). Although we have not been able to meet to present Brethren with Long Service Awards, certificates are still being produced. In many cases the recipient asks for the certificate to be posted to them as soon as they qualify for the award, with a view to a more formal presentation once we return to our meetings. And to conclude, I offer my usual expression of appreciation to the Provincial Grand Master and his Executive for the many ways in which they make my role much easier; to Tony Jordan, Provincial Assistant Grand Secretary, for his perpetual support and advice; to the volunteers who have helped in the office, particularly Alan McArthur, Mike Springthorpe, Dennis Palmer and, most especially, Chris Wadsworth who has worked tirelessly to re-catalogue the library and museum collection, as well as for organising the interesting displays in our cabinets. There is, of course, one more vote of thanks I must offer which is to you all, particularly the hard-working lodge secretaries without whose help I could not possibly have achieved any of this. I trust that their support will continue throughout the forthcoming year, when WBro Tony Jordan will be appointed to succeed me as Provincial Grand Secretary after his faithful and efficient service to the Province.

A set of By-Laws following the wording overleaf (varied in accordance with the notes below, if applicable) will conform to the Model for the purposes of Rule 135, Book of Constitutions, so that the Metropolitan, Provincial or District Grand Master or Grand Inspector will be authorised to approve such By-Laws on behalf of the Grand Master. 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 embodied 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 figure 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.

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 religions 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 Every true Freemason will show tolerance and respect for the opinions of others and behave with kindness and under standing to his fellow creatures. Relief 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. Truth Freemasons strive for the truth, requiring high moral standards and aiming to achieve them in their own lives. Freemasons believe that these principles represent a way of achieving higher standards in life. Freemasonry demands from its members a respect for the law of the country in which a man works and lives. Its principles do not 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 recognised 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.

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 before 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. 7. Arising from these points it is therefore essential that a candidate should be well assured in his own mind: (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.

43


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 a Ballot must not be taken for a Candidate on the night of his proposed Initiation. A Ballot cannot be taken at a Lodge of Emergency, except under the special circumstances laid down in Rule 160. Rule 164 gives details of the particulars required to be specified in the summons for the meeting at which a Ballot is to be taken. Book of Constitutions and By-Laws Secretaries should make themselves perfectly familiar with the Book of Constitutions, especially with reference to Private Lodges, pages 57 to 112 inclusive.

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 cannot 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 emplo yment. 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). Failure 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). Committee of Lodge No Committee of the Lodge can be invested with any general executive power (Rule 154). Communications to Provincial Grand Lodge All communications on Provincial Grand Lodge business must be made through the Provincial Grand Secretary. Dispensations Applications for Dispensations must state the precise reason for the application and should be forwarded to the Provincial Grand Secretary, with a fee of £30.00, giving ample time for the due consideration of the application by the Provincial Grand Master. Emergency Meeting Special attention is drawn to the amended Rule 140. Before a Lodge of Emergency can be summoned, a Dispensation must be obtained 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. Exclusion of a Brother Should a member be two years in arrears, he shall thereupon cease to be a member of the Lodge (Rule 148), and can only again become a member by regular proposition and Ballot (Rule 163). The Lodge shall require payment of the arrears as a condition precedent to election. Rule 148 shall not prevent a Lodge proceeding against any of its members under Rule 181 for non-payment of contributions according to the By-Laws for a shorter period than two years. When a Brother ceases to be a member under Rule 148 the facts shall be forthwith notified to the Grand Secretary and the Provincial Grand Secretary.

44

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.

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.

45


INFORMATION FOR SECRETARIES OF LODGES - continued 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………. 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 Lodge 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 services 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.

46


REGISTRATION FORMS The Registration Form P for every Initiate, Joiner and Re-joiner 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 reason 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 reached 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 payable currently is £10.00 per member from 1st December 2020 and is received annually. In addition a registration fee of £7.50 is payable at this time for every initiate and joiner and re-joiner 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

@ £10.00 @ £7.50 @ £7.50 @ £7.50 Total

= = = = =

£250.00 £15.00 ——— £15.00 £285.00

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. The Grand Lodge return should be completed and both sent direct 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 please 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 Provincial 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.

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.

TEDDIES FOR LOVING CARE

Amazon Smile at no extra cost to you will donate a portion of the purchase price to your selected charity. Teddies For Loving Care Is now available and can be your chosen Charity.

The Teddies For Loving Care appeal started in 2001 in the Province of Essex but quickly grew to become a national initiative, entirely funded by Freemasons and their families who also volunteer their time to run the scheme. The objective of the initiative is to provide teddy bears for staff in medical and other care establishments to give to young children in distress following a trauma or sickness in order to help relieve suffering and reduce the shock and distress of their experience. The bears are not only used by medical staff to help reduce the children's stress and fear levels, but also to reward them for being brave, and in some cases, explain and demonstrate medical procedures. Every child that receives a teddy gets to keep it to take home. In Devonshire the initiative started in 2008 under local Devon coordinator W. Bro. John Adcock supported by Past Assistant Provincial Grand Master, W. Bro. Christopher Yard. In recent years, the initiative has grown from strength to strength under the direction of W. Bro. Keith Bower, supported by Assistant Provincial Grand Master, W. Bro. Charles Yelland. In the Province of Devonshire, an amazing 59,000 teddy bears have been donated to 11 hospital accident and emergency units at Derriford, Torbay, RD&E and North Devon and children’s wards, children’s specialist units, children’s hospices’ and adoption courts right across the Province. Support and enthusiasm for the initiative continues to grow in Devonshire and so it was decided earlier this year that the initiative would benefit from being reshaped into a charitable trust so that registered charity status could be achieved to further develop a regional focus across the Province. Registered charity status was granted by the Charity Commission and accepted by HMRC in August 2020 with one of the immediate benefits of registration being that donations can now be made under the Gift Aid scheme which boosts every £1 donated by a further 25p. If you would like to make a donation to Devon Freemasons Teddies For Loving Care and support this incredible cause, then please contact: W. Bro.

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.

A Miscellany of Mirth

Order your copy today! Only

£8.99

Inclusive of postage & packing.

Payment by: Paypal, Cheque, BACS or cash. For details, Please email: W.Bro. Gerald Sclater

gj@dpmail.co.uk All proceeds are going to the MCF 2023 Festival •

• •

A unique collection of humorous cartoons along with some wry and witty observations of Masonic life both within the temple and at home. A must for all Freemasons as well as their friends and families. Perfect as a gift or to use as a raffle prize.

This what our Provincial Grand Master had to say about the book... Gerald has produced a unique comedic insight into our Masonic order and it is with great pleasure that I endorse and recommend this collection to all Brethren wherever they are in the world. I laughed so much, I nearly fell off my chair! But there are truths here too, that we should learn from. I have always said that Freemasonry should be fun and this book is just that! The profits will all go to our Devonshire Festival so I cannot think of a better way of enjoying learning! Thank you Gerald for this and all that you do for us- from voluntary help in the office to fund raising for Teddies for Loving care. As PGM of Devonshire and President of our MCF festival let me thank everyone who buys this book too - it is a great way to help our Brethren in need and have a chuckle at ourselves!.
