Freemasons come from all walks of life, and are active in promoting a culture of integrity, charity and community responsibility.   Our social mix is very diverse, with members from all walks of life

Freemasonry means different things to different people. Some enjoy the opportunity to listen to and debate with others, whilst some members also find the social activities of great interest. A chance to study the history, philosophy and esoteric nature of the craft appeals to many, but most of all Freemasonry offers you a pathway to develop in ways that personally interest you.
