What is Freemasonry?
Freemasonry can lay claim to be the world's oldest secular fraternal society, being an association of men concerned with moral and spiritual values. Members are taught its precepts by a series of allegorical plays or lectures, which follow ancient forms, and use stonemasons' customs and tools as symbolic guides.
Freemasons believe that these principles represent a way of achieving higher standards in life but gain from Masonry only as much as they are prepared to put into it by way of commitment.
By joining a Lodge, you become a member of one of the largest organisations in the world with Lodges in most countries, all of which will warmly welcome you should you ever visit them. You will also gain much enjoyment from visiting other Lodges in this country, and, in many cases, make lifelong friendships.
From its earliest days, Freemasonry has been concerned with the care of young persons, the sick, aged and disadvantaged. This work continues today. The Freemasons’ Grand Charity in London is one of the largest charities in the UK and, in addition to caring for our own members, large sums are given regularly to national and local charities.
Blundell’s Lodge was founded in 1934 and is open to all Old Blundellians (and, indeed, any other gentlemen) who are 21 or over and are of good character. It also welcomes any existing OB freemasons who wish to join.
We meet four times a year (see below), usually starting late afternoon. After the business proceedings, we then retire for dinner which incorporates both formal toasts and speeches, and general conversation and enjoyment.
Meeting dates and venues
How do I find out more?
If you would like to know more about Freemasonry, may we suggest that, initially, you visit The United Grand Lodge of England’s website, www.ugle.org.uk. This website contains a wealth of valuable information about all aspects of Freemasonry which will, hopefully, answer any questions you may have. It also has links to all other Provinces in the UK should our meeting venues and dates be inconvenient.
If you would then like more details or wish to join Blundell’s Lodge, please contact the Lodge Secretary: -
