The Provincial Grand Lodge of Bristol

The Provincial Grand Lodge of Bristol Welcome to the Provincial Grand Lodge of Bristol. We hope you will find this page informative about masonry in general and of the Province in particular.

Under the United Grand Lodge of England, freemasonry is the UK's largest, secular fraternal and charitable organisation. It has over 300,000 members working in nearly 8,000 lodges throughout England and Wales, and over 30,000 more members overseas. With over 1,300 members, the Province of Bristol is a relatively small province. However, with its strong history, unique ceremonies and charitable donnations, the Province of Bristol holds a unique place in masonry.

We’re lucky to have had the support of the Bristol’s Freemasons for a number of years with their most recent contribution being a donation of £500 worth of wine.

The wine was presented by Richard Lewis, Deputy Head of Bristol’s Freemasons, and his son-in-law Dan Long, who volunteers as a chef at the Hospice, to our Head of Catering Services, Louise.

“Just to be able to offer our patients a glass of wine with their meal can really lift their spirits, perk them up and make them smile”.

Thank you to Bristol’s Freemasons for their continued support and for being able to allow us to carry on providing a little bit of luxury on our Inpatient Unit. 💙

Let this be the last lockdown! 💙

Tonight, England returns to full, national lockdown. The schools are closed until 15th February, and clinically vulnerable people have been told to shield once more.

Whilst this is very similar to the lockdown last March, support bubbles are still allowed, and the optimism this time is it could be the last lockdown as the vaccine is being rolled out.

The Prime Minister said those in the top four priority groups would receive a first vaccine dose by mid-February.

Here’s some organisations who can help you throughout lockdown if you are struggling:

General information

Freemasonry means different things to each of those who join. For some, it’s about making new friends and acquaintances. For others it’s about being able to help deserving causes – making a contribution to family and society. But for most, it is an enjoyable hobby. Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organisation. It teaches self-knowledge through participation in a progression of ceremonies. Members are expected to be of high moral standing and are encouraged to speak openly about Freemasonry. The following information is intended to explain Freemasonry as it is practised 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 its principles (moral lessons and self-knowledge) by a series of ritual dramas - a progression of allegorical two-part plays which are learnt by heart and performed within each Lodge - which follow ancient forms, and use stonemasons’ customs and tools as allegorical guides. Freemasonry instils in its members a moral and ethical approach to life: its values are based on integrity, kindness, honesty and fairness. Members are urged to regard the interests of the family as paramount but, importantly, Freemasonry also teaches and practices concern for people, care for the less fortunate and help for those in need.

Good afternoon Brethren and I hope you have found somewhere to stay dry! I am delighted to have received the news about the charitable work being done in Bristol by the MCF, Lodges, Chapters and individual masons. A truly amazing string of activities and donations. However, I would call your attention to the fact that you should not feel obliged to give, if your own circumstances are adversely affected by the pandemic. Furthermore, if you are struggling though poor health or by the financial impact of the lock down, please do not hesitate in contacting your Lodge Almoner or Secretary. They will be able to advise on the best path to securing some relief for you. Brethren, please stay safe so that we can meet again soon, ideally in the autumn. Yours sincerely and fraternal Jo PGM
Today is the start of Volunteer Week and I'd just like thank all the Bristol Brethren who are volunteering during this pandemic. The main focus is on reducing Food Poverty in Bristol and your donations of time, effort and money are making a big difference to the lives of the many, many people in Bristol who are in crisis. But, all the other ways you volunteer to help individuals, families or communities are also very gratefully received by them.
Something that I have just received! I guess it applies to most of us, alt of course we have a Professional amongst us, our very own PGM. "The working tools of a demented apprentice gardener are the 24 pronged rake, the common shovel and the trowel. The 24 pronged rake is to level our work, the common shovel, to dig out all k***s of earth and other lumps, and the trowel to further prepare the ground and render it fit for the plants we purchased earlier. But as we are not all professional gardeners, but rather amateur or peculiar, we apply these tools to our morals. In this sense, the 24 inch rake represents the 24 hours of the day, part to be spent in looking after the wife, part in labour and going down the pub, and part in helping a friend or fellow gardener in providing him with an alibi, in time of need without fitting ourselves up. The common trowel denotes the force of over exertion, which we should all keep down, and all thoughts of coveting our neighbour’s gardens, which might come to mind during the aforementioned periods, so that our thoughts and desires may ascend polluted in the smoke of the bonfire. The trowel points out the advantages of trial and error, by which means alone we are all rendered fit members of the local gardening club."

Further to my congratulations yesterday, today we must honour our Provincial Grand Scribe Ezra, EComp Peter Wills, who has now been appointed as PGStB in Supreme Grand Chapter. Again, sadly, Peter will not be able to receive his collar in person, but the Province owes him a huge debt of gratitude for his efforts over the last few years. Well done Mr Secretary.
Under normal circumstances, today would have witnessed the Investiture of Grand Officers in the magnificent temple in Great Queen Street. However, as that isn't happening, I am delighted to say that WBros Jon Hayes and Phil Harrill are STILL being appointed as PAGDCs despite the lack of ceremony. Well deserved appointments both.
