The Grand Master Mason, Brother W.Ramsay McGhee, addresses Scottish Freemasons worldwide as we prepare to start a new year, 2023.

Sequel to the recently concluded 4th International Scottish Masonic Conference where the Grand Lodge of Antient Free & Accepted Masons of Scotland presented its vision towards 2023 and beyond, Brother McGhee called for support by all Brethren for change at both Grand Lodge level, with the introduction of the new governance structure, and also at Lodge level, to ensure our meetings remain interesting to our younger Brethren. Both these changes are necessary to ensure “Scottish Freemasonry continues to move with the times and ensure the sustainability of our beloved Craft.”

The Grand Master Mason charged Scottish Freemasons to "promote new and exciting ideas so that, irrespective of our age or length of service, we can all look forward to attending meetings with a sense of excitement."

Brother McGhee concluded his address by wishing all Brethren and their families "A very happy healthy and prosperous 2023" quoting the late Doddie Weir to all Brethren “Whatever your situation, make the most you can of each and every day. Be nice to people, and laugh as much as possible.”

Families suffering from the cost of living crisis were the beneficiaries of the Christmas spirit at the Grand Lodge of Antient Free and Accepted Masons of Scotland, for this year.

The staff and tour guides decided that, instead of the usual £5 Secret Santa gift at their Christmas Meal, they would each donate the £5 towards buying food for the local food bank.

It resulted in two large crates of food items being delivered to Alison Roxburgh, the General Manager of Edinburgh North East Foodbank.

Today, at the Festival of St Andrew, The Grand Master Mason, Brother William Ramsay McGhee, presented Adam Gaines, director of Prostate Scotland, a cheque for £1.125 million on behalf of Scottish Freemasons.

The money, raised over a 10-year period, has already begun to make an impact on men with Prostate Cancer.
Adam Gaines said: "This very generous donation enabled us to complete an appeal to raise funds to help bring about robotic-assisted prostate cancer surgery in the east and west Scotland.”

"The £126,000 raised by Freemasons who completed a zip slide in 2016 was specifically used to pay for robotic surgical equipment.”

"This form of surgery is the most advanced technique available and
already a few thousand men have been treated in this way."

William Ramsay McGhee added:
"I would like to thank each and every one of the Scottish Constitution Freemasons at home and abroad who have worked so hard for more than 10 years to raise this magnificent sum…And I'm sure, like me, you are delighted it is being put to such great use."

Hello Most Worshipful Grand Master Mason Brother William Ramsay McGhee.

Thank you to you and your officers for bringing us so much knowledge during this pandemic. I do attend the Virtual lectures of Grand Lodge Of Scotland history Lectures, as well as the Lectures from The Lodge Hope of Currachee 337.

It was said by Gordon Michie on the last lecture that this will stop once we can go back to our lodges. I do agree with him that nothing will be better than meeting our Brethren again in person, but I have to say as well the lectures that they have is so Masonic educational, that it would be a shame if that don't continue as a virtual platform.
I wish that I could come to weekly meetings in Scotland but that is impossible.
So I will ask you to please consider this platform for further educational lectures.
Bro. Egil Earl Mortensen, Lodge Newfoundland Kilwinning No. 1754 SC.
Brethren, 24th December 2020

2020 started well – after a busy January and February at home, I flew out to Johannesburg where accompanied by Grand Treasurer, Brother Jim Bell, I had the pleasure of visiting our District Grand Lodge of Central South Africa followed by the Installation of our new DGM of Botswana, Brother Jayaraman Ramesh. We then headed to Harare in Zimbabwe where we joined the Brethren of the District at their annual communication. From Zimbabwe, next stop was Malawi to visit two schools and two Lodges before making our way to KwaZulu Natal to install the new DGM, Brother Ken Tucker. It was then back to the UK where we encountered a country beset with the deadly Coronavirus.
Since then we have all experienced a year that has been extraordinary, frustrating and difficult. For many, a year of sadness losing loved ones and being unable to mourn their passing properly – for many, a year of distress through ill health, mentally and physically – for many a year of concern with loss of jobs or businesses collapsing and of course a year which has seen all our Lodges closing whereby we have been unable to join with each other as would be the normal.
However, in the midst of adversity we have much to be thankful for. We have witnessed first-hand the valued tenets of Brotherly Love and Relief being demonstrated in so many ways throughout all of our Districts, Provinces and Lodges. We have witnessed the creative and imaginative use of technology to keep everyone in touch with each other. We have witnessed the staff at Grand Lodge going that extra mile to keep the wheels of our beloved organisation turning and we have witnessed the tremendous dedication of our staff in the Masonic Homes resulting in them remaining Covid free. Working Parties have been established to work on the future strategy of our organisation and to update the present discipline system with further working parties to be established in the New Year to take us forward in a positive and upbeat manner. I extend my sincere thanks to you all for your support and understanding during the year – it is greatly appreciated.
Tomorrow we celebrate Christmas, our Jewish Brethren have just celebrated Hanukkah and only a month ago our Hindu Brethren celebrated Diwali. The common theme in the three celebrations is Light. As we approach the start of a new year, while there will be ongoing difficulties, likewise there will be light. We have, thanks to the dedication of our scientists and medical experts, a vaccine which will hopefully give us all the protection that we so desperately seek to allow a return to some form of normality.
I wish you all a peaceful, a hopeful and a light-filled Christmas. May you and yours enjoy Christmas despite the restrictions and I pray that the New Year will be a year of great blessings for you, your families and all those dear to you.

Discrimination ? I am a Lifetime member and Freemason of a Scottish Lodge, as was my father, but yet due to being both Italian in name and Citizenship I am having to battle with Discrimination with my Local Council, as todate everything our families name is on is meet with Negativity and rejection spanning over 20 years, as we have had to raise questions under the Equality Acts with our Council, as has my sister whom is severely ill and had to take legal action under Discrimination Law, as well as myself over years have had to rise questions under the Race Relations Act . I can not even get support for my business , as the only offer has been a Foodbank voucher as I have commercial premises owing to being disabled and suffering from Anxeity and depression through years of negativity and possible Racial Prejudice, yet elected members whom may be Freemasons are refusing to assist in seeking business support. The best yet, no Freemason has assisted us to date, as it may even be the case it is due to being a Freemason with
why we as a family are being possibly discriminated against, but whom knows, certainly been a Freemason one should not discriminate, but yet in Scotland there is no assistance in helping fellows brothers, which certainly is against the spirit of Freemasonry and as such I am now considering my stance as a member of Freemasonry
Could I urge Brethren to be cautious when joining Masonic FB pages.
I was on a page and realised that there were non-masons taking part in the conversation.
No secrets were being discussed but the inner workings were, to me this is as bad as discussing the Secrets.
It would be all to easy to slip from discussing Masonry in general to speaking about the secrets.
The excuse of it’s all out there on the web doesn’t cut it.
By openly discussing how the Lodge works gives someone enough knowledge that he could easily trick an inexperienced brother to divulge more than he should.
If you still want to join one of these pages email the admin and ask if the page is an open one.
If it is my advice is walk away.
Dearest Brethren,
Supporting our wounded troops,
We get locked down, but we get up again!
Help raise vital funds for ex-military by Walking Home For Christmas this December 2020.
The plan is to walk and cycle around 17 miles covering all 7 ACF Detachments within 13 coy South West London. Our support would be greatly appreciated

These photographs are of Freemasons’ Hall. This building is not only the pride of the Masonic Fraternity in the City of
Aberdeen, Scotland, but is considered to be among the finest, if not actually the finest, purpose built building devoted entirely to Freemasonry within the Scottish Masonic Constitution. It is situated in a preservation area in central Aberdeen and has been Grade B listed inside and out, by Historic Environment Scotland. Purpose built of granite (it is of course in the Granite City) it’s doors were opened for the first time in December 1910 and all of the craftsmen employed, both inside and out, were local.
The archives and artefacts it contains date from the late 17th century and are a treasure
of the social history of the City of Aberdeen.
Visitors from all over the world are quite literally stunned at this amazing building, and the beautiful halls it contains. They marvel at the skill of the Aberdonians who built and adorned it and has often been described as Aberdeen’s hidden jewel. The photographs will give you a tiny view of the marble, wood-panelling, carvings and ornate plasterwork of the beautiful interior.
However to preserve the interior there must be a sound exterior and time and tide hae taken their toll. A recent survey has shown serious problems with the roof parapets and chimney stacks which have to be dealt with urgently. The Corona Virus Lockdown has caused the Halls to close, resulting in absolutely no income. Despite submitting applications for Covid-19 relief, which is issued by the Scottish Government and controlled by our City Council, absolutely NO support has been forthcoming and the last reserves are just about exhausted, mainly due to having to pay Business Rates (local building taxes). The financial burden is now greater than can be sustained and there is a very real possibility, that without YOUR help this superb edifice and its archives will be lost to Aberdeen for ever.

This appeal has therefore been launched asking for your help to preserve this iconic Aberdeen Landmark.

Please help to save this this magnificent building by donating whatever you can at:
https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/harry-petrie-2

Should you wish to become a Friend of Freemasons’ Hall
and make regular donations email at :

Anything that you may care to give will be gratefully received and, I guarantee, faithfully applied.
