Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organisations. Its roots lie in the traditions and ceremonies of the medieval stonemasons who built our cathedrals and castles. Some rituals are still celebrated today.
Freemasonry means different things to each individual – making new friends, meeting likeminded individuals, contributing to society, celebrating a long tradition, experiencing personal growth, taking up a hobby and having fun.

Freemasons use four important guiding principals to help define their path through life: Integrity, Friendship, Respect and Charity.
- Integrity: We say what we mean and we keep our promises.
- Friendship: We pride ourselves on openness, we treat everyone as equal and welcome them onto our community.
- Respect: We respect the opinions of others and behave with understanding towards them. We listen, explore any differences and look for the common ground.
- Charity: Although our families come first, we believe in playing a key role in our communities and give time and money to charitable ventures as and when we are able.
