Freemasonry in Bermuda There are three Grand Lodges represented in Bermuda: The United Grand Lodge of England with 5 Lodges under a Grand Inspector; District Grand Royal Arch Chapter of Bermuda with 4 Chapters under a Grand Superintendent; and the Provincial Grand Lodge of Bermuda, Irish Constitution under the Grand Lodge of Ireland with 4 Lodges (postal address is The Provincial Grand Lodge of Bermuda, Irish Constitution, PO Box HM 2295, Hamilton HM JX, Bermuda). In late May 2006, there was the Consecration of The District Grand Lodge of Bermuda on the Grand Registry of the United Grand Lodge of England. The District Grand Lodge of Bermuda embraces all five local lodges of the English Constitution. The first Provincial Grand Master of the District Grand Lodge of Bermuda is Robert William Rego, JP. A Hamilton businessman, he was upgraded from the status he has held since 2004 as Grand Inspector of local English Freemasonry when he took over from Charles W. Kempe, who was some ten years in the post. They were in succession to a line dating to 1928 when the first Grand Inspector was appointed. Freemasonry existed in Bermuda in 1744-45 (earliest historical record), when the Earl of Strathmore, then Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of both England and Scotland, appointed Governor Allured Popple as Provincial Grand Master for the Islands of Bermuda. Oldest Lodges are Prince Alfred No 233 (EC), originally chartered under the Moderns in 1792 as No 507, and later in 1801 under the Ancients, Lodge St. George No 200 (SC), date of Charter 7th August 1797 and Atlantic Phoenix No 224 (EC) date of Charter 9th August 1797. The latter two celebrated 200 years in 1997. Some other organizations include Royal Order of Scotland, Royal Arch, Rose Croix and Knights Templar. The Masonic Temple is at Khyber Pass, Warwick The following meet (contact them directly for dates and times) at Freemasons Hall, Reid Street, Hamilton, or elsewhere by prior notification.

Freemasons Fund for Bermuda (FFBB) The fundraising arm for all 13 Masonic lodges on the Island. It’s donated more than $200,000 to charities since it was established a few years ago.  Bermuda is considered unique because, despite its relatively small size, it has representatives of the Grand Lodges of England, Ireland and Scotland. Each of the lodges is a member of the FFFB and contributes accordingly. Donations are not made to religious, political or Masonic organizations, Freemasons or their families. RC  197

Friends of the Bermuda Railway Trail (FBRT) A Bermudian charity (RC) set up in March 2013 to help promote the Railway Trail as a community and tourist resource. Founding members are:Allied World Assurance Company Ltd, Ironshore Insurance Ltd, Montpelier Reinsurance Ltd, Renaissance Reinsurance Ltd, Jay Nichols; a senior Reinsurance executive who once lived on the island and loves the Trail; and a small family foundation supported by the Murphy family of Salt Kettle. On October 1, 2013 it was announced that a pedestrian bridge over Bailey’s Bay is hoped to revitalize the eastern end of the historic railway trail. Tucker Murphy, of Friends of the Bermuda Railway Trail (FBRT), said that the Bailey’s Bay bridge project is the result of a partnership between Government and the group, with FBRT raising the funds for the around $500,000 project. “The idea of the Bailey’s Bay project is it links just over three, 3.5 kilometers of trail. It would use the historical length of the railway trestles going across the bay, so we hope it would be very low impact on the costal foreshore area. The funding has been raised privately through FBRT, and it’s in partnership with the Parks Department, who are driving the project on the Government side. The FBRT has been working with Government for more than a year and a half on improving the trail, and has already seen some success in the western end of the Island. We kind of tested the relationship with improvements to the West end of the trail last fall. We put tons of mulch on some of the more traveled areas like Ord Road and by the Fairmont Southampton. We also put down wheeling ramps for cycles on some of the steeper areas. We put trash cans on the trail and we put benches. It’s grown from there. We’ve got a number of private donors who have joined us under the umbrella of FBRT. Research has shown that the more connected sections of the trail in Paget and Warwick receive more than ten times the traffic than the section in Hamilton Parish. It’s probably 70 to 100 people per week versus more than 1,000 in Paget. If you look at the length of each of the trails, it’s probably about 6km of continuous trail there, while the Hamilton Parish segment is much smaller. Around 2km, and it leads to a dead end. Connecting the segments that stretch between Crawl Hill and Coney Island will create an unbroken segment of trail more than 3km in length, which would hopefully encourage more people to use the trail for walking and cycling. In 2003, Government reconnected Shelly Bay to Flatts using these six prefabricated bridges. We thought that was a good example of a successful project on the trail, and we’re trying to replicate something similar in Bailey’s Bay. We think the trail is a great asset for free recreation and a place where people can go to walk or seek respite after work. We looked at studies in the US and the UK on rails to trails projects, and they found that for about every dollar you invest in a trail, you get about $3 return in terms of health benefits. Along with the health benefits, the trail also carries tremendous cultural and tourism value, links to numerous historical sites and boasts fantastic views of the Island. We believe it’s not only a useful link, it’s also a beautiful section of trail and this link would give access to many more people. We will be making the bridge as non-intrusive visually as possible. Our view is to minimize the intrusion, to make it blend as much as we can with the natural landscape.”

Human Rights Commission (HRC) See Bermuda Government Boards Administers Bermuda Human Rights Act 1981.

2016. April 8. A fresh chapter has begun for the Human Rights Commission in its new headquarters at Milner Place, Hamilton, where the latest set of commissioners held its first meeting. Tawana Tannock, the HRC chairwoman, praised the work of the selection committee in bringing together commissioners from a broad variety of backgrounds. “I’m very pleased that we have this diverse body of 12 to help move the commission into a new era of greater independence,” Ms Tannock said, referring to the HRC’s official move out from the auspices of the Ministry of Community, Culture and Sports. Continuing member Jens Juul, a certified insurance arbitrator, has served on several local boards as well as operating Scandinavian Re, while new member Dany Pen, the education and communications officer for the Bermuda National Gallery, holds a special interest in women’s rights, gender equality and education. New member Jonathan Young said he took inspiration from the service of his mother, Kim Young, as a commissioner; he comes from an insurance background, as well as teaching at the Bermuda College, where he was a shop steward. Carla George, a new commissioner coming from a legal background, has also served on a variety of boards, including CedarBridge Academy, the Bermuda Hospitals Board and the Board of Education, and gave education as one of her main interests. Returning commissioner Kim Simmons, a corporate attorney, expressed a broad interest in human rights, particularly in how the topic was perceived by young people. Ms Simmons said she looked forward to continuing her advocacy for persons with mental disabilities. Donna Daniels, a former teacher and principal of Dellwood Middle School, is also executive director of the Adult Education School. Ms Daniels gave education as her “passion”, along with the protection of the vulnerable, the links between unemployment and poverty, and issues concerning mental health. New member Ben Adamson, a lawyer with 15 years’ experience, has served as a human rights mediator for the past six years, while Quinton Butterfield, also new, works in the Bermuda Government’s information technology office. Mr Butterfield said he looked forward to seeing the island “move forward on marriage equality, gender equality and gender identity”, and gave another interest as education and advocacy on the topic of human rights. Absent from the gathering were members Carolyn Thomas Ray, Franklin Fahnbulleh, and deputy chairman John Hindes.

Immigration Appeals Tribunal

An independent tribunal on immigration matters.  See Bermuda Government Boards. The House of Assembly passed legislation establishing the tribunal in July 2011. It is designed to make the final decisions on grievances relating to issues such as Bermudian status, permanent residency and work permits. There are 12 members of the panel, revealed in the Official Gazette in February 2012.

Immigration Reform Working Group The group, which examines the issue of immigration policy, appointed in 2016 after a week of protests outside Parliament sparked by the controversial Pathways to Status legislation. The first meeting focused on the topic of children adopted from overseas by Bermudians and the rights and privileges that should be extended to them. Phone 500-4664 or by e-mail immigationbda@gmail.com.

2017. May 2. The Immigration Reform Working Group is working with Government to collect data after a lack of available information slowed progress. Delivering an update on the group’s work, chairman William Madeiros said that after a year of discussions, forums and submissions, calls for data about mixed status families in Bermuda were a “constant theme. All members take their responsibilities seriously and remain focused on making recommendations to the Government,” he said. “No one expected to be working on these matters a year after we commenced. The group has spent hundreds of hours in deliberations, spoken to many outside agencies, studied numerous submissions and hosted ten productive public forums. To progress further, however, we need reliable data in order to make fair, well-conceived and multi-generational legislative proposals to the Government. The call for such information was a consistent theme during the many public meetings held last year. In the absence of relevant information being readily available, we are now developing, with Government assistance, a means to collect critically important data on mixed status families. Once collected, we will be able to advance our deliberations and come back to the public for its review and assessment. We have been challenged on our timeline, process and progress by some in the community. Our position is clear: we will examine the issues carefully, engage the public and arrive at informed positions on the issues at hand. Our mandate is to get the proposals right — inclusive of public consultation — and we know that Bermuda will allow us the necessary time to do so.” Mr Madeiros said the group reports to Michael Dunkley, the Premier, through the Minister of Home Affairs, the Immigration Reform Action Group and the Bermuda Industrial Union, and has been regularly reporting on its deliberations to those parties, along with the Bermuda Public Services Union and the People’s Campaign. The working group was formed in the wake of a week of protest outside the House of Assembly over proposed “Pathways to Status” legislation. Last June, the group presented its recommendations on adoption cases, and has since been working to examine the issue of mixed status families on the island.
