“It gives me a sense of belonging”


Our 6,000 members have always come from all walks of life and meet as equals whatever their faith, ethnic group or position in society. For many this spirit of fellowship is what they value most. Making new friends, helping others, following a family tradition and participating in the ceremonial are also important.

Freemasonry contributes over £33 million a year as one of the UK’s largest charitable givers. Raising funds largely through voluntary donations we support individual members, local communities and global emergencies. “It’s about the right way to treat our fellow human beings.”

Freemasonry means different things to everyone who joins. For some, it is about making new friends and acquaintances.
