Freemasonry and corona virus do not seem like natural bedfellows. We exist to help Lodges find new members and maintain their existing ones. So firstly, an admission. We are not a charity, and in fact a very small team who rely on new paid work. So we do obviously have a vested interest in Freemasonry Lodge websites and continuing to build them for Lodges. But we should be clear that… Read More »Freemasonry and Corona Virus
