OUR VISION
To ensure that all London Masons enjoy being members of a worthwhilemovement by building a strong, innovative and vibrant organisation thathas a clear and positive identity.
This new version of the London Lodge Handbook is a welcome addition to theinformation now available to London masons, replacing the Handbook for LondonLodges and Chapters prepared by London Management in 2002.I trust that London masons will find this handbook helpful and informative andwhilst it is principally for Brethren either in office or heading towards office, Ihope that other Brethren will find it adds to their Masonic knowledge.It embraces the technology now available to us. It is an electronic document, withlinks to live documents on Porchway and the facility to return quickly to the maintext in the Handbook. A hard copy can be downloaded from Porchway.I am most grateful to Stuart Henderson, the Metropolitan Grand Secretary, for hiswork with the team under Stewart Nardi to resuscitate this project and to bring itto completion in a matter of months.Their work is not yet done, as they will now move on to create a parallel LondonChapter Handbook for our Companions in the Royal Arch.Russell J.
