FREEMASONRY – WORTHWHILE, RELEVANT, INCLUSIVE
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
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.
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.
Freemasons take mobile display units to town centres, fetes, shows and other events in East Kent throughout the year. Our volunteers look forward to meeting you and answering any questions you may have about Freemasonry.
Freemasons actively involve themselves in their local communities. They help local good causes to raise funds and they organise social functions and other events.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The History of Freemasonry in Kent reaches back into the early 18th Century. Many of the earliest Lodges had military origins and travelled with the regiment.
Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organisations. Its values are based on integrity, kindness, honesty and fairness.
Freemasons are encouraged to be charitable. They give generously to a wide range of charities and other good causes and actively involve themselves in their local communities.
