Welcome from the Head of East Kent Freemasons

I am pleased to welcome you to this website, which is open equally to members of the public and fellow Freemasons. Geoffrey Dearing - Provincial Grand Master

Come and Visit Us

Masonic Halls can be found in most towns in East Kent and open days will be held from time to time to which visitors are welcomed. Open Days are advertised in the local press and local radio.

Kent Museum of Freemasonry

The Kent Museum of Freemasonry in Canterbury welcomes visitors who wish to find out more about our organisation. It is manned by volunteers and is open every day from 10 am to 4 pm. Admission is free.

Community Involvement

Freemasons actively involve themselves in their local communities. They help local good causes to raise funds and they organise social functions and other fund-raising events.

Masonic Fishing Charity

The East Kent Branch of the national Masonic Fishing Charity runs all-day fishing events for youngsters with physical, learning or behavioural difficulties, the disadvantaged or those who have suffered trauma.

Teddies for Loving Care

Freemasons help to provide teddy bears to hospitals so they can be given to children in distress. The teddy helps the child to relax and enables the medical staff to get on with the treatment.

Sports Association

East Kent Freemasons have a Sports Association that gives both members and non-members an opportunity to participate in or support the sports that they enjoy. An annual dinner is held to celebrate the previous year’s sporting achievements.

Social Life

To add to their enjoyment of Freemasonry, East Kent Freemasons organise hundreds of social events each year to which non-members are welcomed. They may be Lodge or Centre-based, Province-wide or they may be organised for the local community.
