Our History

Thanks to you all for sticking with us during these difficult times, for paying your dues, attending the Audio Lodges and taking part in the weekly raffles which will ensure we will return to the Lodge, hopefully within next couple of weeks in a sound financial position. Those of you that view the Buffs sites on Facebook will have seen UK Members moaning about GLE, Fees accruing and not Meeting where I have certainly heard nothing from you Good and Worthy Brethren.

As far as Fines & Gifts and Voluntary Contributions to Grand Lodge of Cyprus Benevolence Fund, are concerned, can I ask that you empty your D’s pots and check under the cushions of your settee (not for fluff and peanuts), and bring with you when we meet. I know that some of you have been placing your Fines & Gifts in a tin for that purpose.

As far as the Grand Lodge of Cyprus is concerned, our Grand Primo, Bro. Gary Dickinson KOM and his Officers and closing in on their 100th day in office without actually enjoying physical involvement and interaction with the Members. They are ‘champing at the bit’ to execute the changes and innovations they hope to bring to the Order under our New Banner. we sincerely hope you are as enthusiastic about getting together again.

Yours fraternally.

Gary John Davis KOM

Grand Secretary

Our Grand Primo, Brother Gary Dickinson has chosen HOLIDAY of A LIFETIME Mini-Bus as his appeal for 2021. Like many Grand Primo’s before him, he has selected a project dear to his heart and interests.


Holiday Of A Life Time (H.O.A.L.T.) is the main charitable project of the R.A.O.B. in Cyprus and for over 50 years has been the focus of our Fund Raising activities. You will find more detail of the project on this website and you don’t have to be a member to take part and support this worthy cause.


Bro. Gary has recognised the need to enhance the experience of the young children who have been fortunate enough to be selected for a holiday in Cyprus by providing a dedicated Mini-bus to transport them to the activities and events organised for them. Also, the prospect of raising additional funds from the use of the Mini-bus for H.O.A.L.T. fund raising activities between the organised holidays. The Mini-bus will have signage to clearly show the H.O.A.L.T. dedication.


The fund raising for the Appeal will take place, not only in the Lodges based in Cyprus but also abroad and the events will not be restricted to RAOB members. These events will be advertised on this website, Facebook and local press.


Please contact the Grand Secretary, Bro. Gary Davis if you wish to become involved and support the Appeal or require any further details.      Mobile: (+357) 97655156
