Provincial Grand Lodge of Warwickshire

Internet "code of practice" and UGLE website guidelines

"Freemasonry is the world's oldest secular fraternal society, with members spread over all the Earth's surface. It is fitting that such an Institution should have International representation, and the World Wide Web allows us as Freemasons to be represented internationally and can be a major tool in the process of better informing the public about Freemasonry."

David F Macey - Provincial Grand Master

Lack of control over access to and the placing of information on the Internet may cause problems. The Province of Warwickshire has produced guidelines which incorporate those issued by the United Grand Lodge of England.

To ensure accuracy and consistency on policy matters all sites must be approved by the Provincial Communications Officer via his appointed representative W Bro Ron Parker.

Web sites of a Masonic nature or which include Masonic material which are established by or in connection with Lodges or individual Brethren, and which contain material which is considered by the Provincial Communications Officer to be injudicious or contrary to Grand Lodge policy, will be required to amend or remove this material. Refusal or dilatory response would be likely to render the Lodge or Brethren involved to Masonic disciplinary action.

Social Media

The Province offers the following guidelines for the use of Twitter.
