Freemasonry puts its principles into practice through its charitable activities. We believe in interacting and working closely within our local communities to help all people in need and their communities as a whole.
Improving Life Skills
Becoming a Freemasons can help with your life skills, confidence, public speaking, accounting, charitable work, caring for others and much more.
One of the oldest social organisations in the world, Freemasonry is not defined by an ideology. It is open to people from all religions and political persuasions and provides the common foundation for friendships between members, many of which will last for life.
With a membership of more than 150,000 people drawn from communities across the UK, Freemasonry brings people together irrespective of their race, religion or any other perceived differences that can divide us as a society.
We are a unique members’ organisation which has thrived for over 300 years. Having no political or religious affiliations, we comprise members of all ages, races, religions, cultures and backgrounds. We gather in our individual Lodges throughout the country where we have ceremonial traditions which encourage us both to be more tolerant and respectful and actively to fulfil our civic and charitable responsibilities; we also make time to eat, drink and meet together, and form lifelong friendships.
What does it mean to be a Freemason?
Who are we?
There are several theories about the origins of Freemasonry, ranging from ancient builders to medieval stonemasons.
Still to this day, the roots of modern Freemasonry are the subject of intense speculation, but the general consensus among Masonic scholars is that they lie with the medieval stonemasons that built our castles and cathedrals.

“Whilst I have only had the honour of being a Freemason for a year, I’m humbled to have found the intimacy and warmth of our friendship, an experience truly unlike anywhere else.”
“After leaving the armed forces I was at a loss, my mates were still in the services and I felt alone. Joining Freemasonry has brought back the camaraderie, the social life and the ceremonial part”
