Social media stats – July 2019 📊

Here are the social media stats for the last month across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

The improvement in social media activity and the number of Provinces using Instagram is particular pleasing. A particular mention to the Provincial Grand Lodge of Derbyshire who have recently launched their Instagram page after the UGLE Digital Workshop in Derby. They have shot straight to the top of the Instagram table – well done!

The stats for Facebook and Twitter are ordered by Engagement – this measures the public shares, likes and comments for a Province’s social media efforts and is a key indicator of the number of people reading and looking at your content.

The Instagram stats are ordered by Likes – this demonstrates the amount of people enjoying the content enough to actively ‘like’ a post.

We are constantly reviewing the metric by which we analyse and order these tables.

Open House

Open House London is the world’s largest architecture festival, giving free public access to 800+ buildings, walks, talks and tours over one weekend in September each year. The event started 25 years ago with the first Open House London in 1992 and gives free access to London’s best buildings as a way of inspiring the public about the benefits of great design.

Freemasons’ Hall has taken part in the event for a number of years and has seen 3,000 visitors through its doors on the Saturdays it has opened to the public.

This year we are opening on both days (Saturday 21 September and Sunday 22 September) and are on the lookout for volunteers to dedicate their time to help us with the following roles:
Room stewards (answering questions from public about the rooms / general FAQs on Freemasonry/tour questions)
Freemasons in regalia – in Grand Temple and as Room Stewards
Help with Lego Make and Take activity for children
Front of house stewards / crowd control.

If you would like to help please contact UGLE’s events manager Katherine Nisbet on

Bedfordshire Freemasons donate £500,000 for new accommodation lodge for local Scout Group
Anthony Henderson, Bedfordshire’s Provincial Grand Master, announced the exciting news that work has now begun on a new Accommodation and Amenities Lodge for Bedfordshire Scouts – following a £500,000 donation from Bedfordshire Freemasons

The Lodge, which will accommodate 40 Scouts and eight Leaders – and even more during the day – has abled and disabled facilities, as well as a kitchen, drying room and a large activities area. It has a log cabin appearance and is designed to blend in with the 17-acre ancient woodland in which it will be built.

Following the arrival of the first delivery of logs, Bedfordshire Freemasons held a BBQ and log-laying ceremony at the Leslie Sells Activity Centre on 4th August 2019, where all those present were able to see the size and footprint of the building, which is due to be complete by Spring 2020.
