A Message to our Brethren from the PGM

“UGLE – Our Rights as Freemasons: “Enough is Enough”

United Grand Lodge is now asserting our rights as Freemasons to combat media discrimination.

My aim is to ensure that all the Brethren in our great Province are fully informed about what is happening.

Yes indeed my Brethren, the worryingly increasing amount of factually incorrect disinformation being published in the National media is now being addressed head-on by our Grand Lodge.

You may have already seen the full page statement in today’s Broadsheets?

“Enough is Enough”

Time was that we, as Freemasons, would “turn the other cheek” and simply ignore any criticism or adverse comment.

Times change! We now live in a different era where it is essential to assert rights when threatened.

The “Enough is Enough” initiative is being roundly welcomed throughout our Constitution and I encourage everyone to be very supportive locally.

It is a pleasure to confirm that our relationships with local media outlets are positive through the hard work of our dedicated Communications Team.

Should you be approached by the media for comment on “Enough is Enough”, please would you refer the enquirer to our Provincial Office?

More information will posted on our Website/Social Media and I strongly encourage you to read and to share with your families and friends.

2018 – Best Year Ever!
