LOCAL FREEMASONS SUPPORT VECTIS RADIO’S 4PS PROJECT

The award-winning Vectis Radio 4Ps project has received a financial boost thanks to the generosity of local Freemasons.

The project, which helps young people with additional needs improve their confidence and communication abilities by using radio, is a registered charity.

After a recent visit, Island resident Tim Lewis was so impressed with the work the project and the station does for the local community that he arranged for a donation from his Masonic Lodge.

The cheque for £250 from Vectensian Lodge, based in Ryde, was presented by Tim to Maggie Currie, one of the charity’s trustees.

Maggie said:

“The work that the 4Ps does with young people is amazing and we have seen some outstanding results. Much of our work is funded by the benevolence of others and on behalf of the board of trustees and the future students of the 4Ps I would like to thank the Master and the Brethren of Vectensian Lodge for this generous donation.”

Tim added:

“Following my recent visit to Vectis Radio to see the fantastic work that the 4Ps project does in improving the lives of young people on the Island, I had no hesitation is applying for a donation from my Lodge. One of the founding principles of Freemasonry is charitable giving and being able to donate to such a worthy local cause underlines that commitment to society.”

Can anyone explain to me what Freemasons is all about? When I asked a Freemason they were so cagey about what they do to make me wonder if it’s something illegal.

They have a very interesting history, worth reading up on, they got a bad name by allegedly doing favours for each other (awarding contracts, that kind of thing) and not helped by being very secretive about their ‘club’.
Bit like the alleged ‘brown envelope’ system on the island I keep hearing about!
In reality though they feel more important than they actually are ! (Insecure man syndrome)

The local lodges act as the camouflaged component of a system that controls the world at higher levels (33rd degree) and above.Just a bunch of buffers scratching each others backs for social advantage with a patina of charity eventing for PR purposes.Do a deep dive on Albert Pike and all will be revealed.If you can handle brutal truths.
