Freemasonry is many different things to its members but above all it is about friendship. You may not know anyone who is a Freemason - don't worry that is the purpose of this Masonic Lodge website - hopefully you now feel at home and we have answered a few of your questions.

We welcome anyone, from any walk of life, as a member as long as they meet the following requirements and we look forward to welcoming them into the wonderful world of Freemasonry which we all enjoy and we are sure you will too.
