The Masonic Province of East Kent has long been a leader in the development of Masonic Communications. From the early editions of the Provincial Magazine to modern social media, it has long sought to utilise new ways of communicating both with its members and with the world at large.
A group of volunteers help to implement the Province’s Communications Strategy led by a small team at the centre. This team is supported by a larger group of media producers, photographers and spokespersons in various locations around the province.
