Today (26.6.21) The Telegraph published an interesting article on the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE) and the diversity of Freemasonry. Dr David Staples, CEO of UGLE says: "We have a very proud history of respecting people and not worrying about how much money they have, the colour of their skin, or what religion they are". The Order of Women Freemasons was proudly represented by W Bro Roshni Patel. 
With legs and friendships strengthened Lodge La Rama Prima No 355 from Los Boliches, Spain, have announced that after over 80 days of collectively walking and swimming 5,941 kilometres the Order of Women Freemasons’ Spanish brethren have 'virtually' arrived on the steps of the Order's Grand Lodge in London. 
Since leaving Los Boliches, Fuengirola, on 1st April 2021 to raise money for the Spanish charity ‘Adimi’ and the Order's Grand Lodge Charitable Trust twenty members of the Lodge have enjoyed walking through 3 countries, visiting 31 places of interest having taken detours and have waved out to 6 OWF Lodges as they passed by, 
The Master of the Lodge, W Bro Hird says: 
“The call to collectively walk the distance from the Lodge in Los Boliches, Fuengirola, Spain to Grand Lodge, London, was met with enthusiasm, trepidation, amazement and sheer determination! Walking over 500 kilometres every week since the start, we have surpassed expectations and enjoyed so much fun along the way. 
The bond of friendship has most certainly strengthened as we have travelled together, sharing the pain, the laughter and our stories. 
Creating a positive memory at a time when the world is in turmoil, adds to the joy of making a difference to the worthwhile charities our efforts will benefit. Thank you all….” 
Now, in view of the cancelled return flight due to ongoing COVID 19 restrictions, the ladies are tightening their boots once again to walk back to Los Boliches! 
On the anniversary of the NHS, Monday 5th July 2021, the Order of Women Freemasons is joining the national day of thanks announced by the Government when the public can show their gratitude to all NHS and frontline staff and remember those who have lost their lives to the Covid virus. 
The Order of Women Freemasons is encouraging its lodges to hold garden parties or similar at 1.00pm on the day, thus creating a big OWF party at the same time throughout the nation. As well as paying tribute to the NHS and frontline workers, this will be an opportunity for lodge members to come together after all this time to celebrate their friendships and remember those friends and family that members have lost to this dreadful virus. 
Members of the Order of Women Freemasons, in support of the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE) Universities Scheme 2021 Challenge were present today at UGLE Grand Lodge in Great Queen Street, London, to wave the first walkers off on this epic challenge (see photo below).
