Becoming a Freemason

Freemasonry means different things to each of those who join. For some, it’s about making new friends and acquaintances. For others it’s about being able to help deserving causes – making a contribution to family and society. But for most, it is an enjoyable hobby.

“As member i have found Scouting and Freemasonry are sharing all of the Traditional Values, the best of both organisations. I recommend joining Venturer Lodge and i have found it to be the next step in my scouting journey”  Derek Hagan 

Every true Freemason will show tolerance and respect for the opinions of others and will behave with compassion and understanding to his fellows. This promotes true friendship and we are taught to regard the whole human race as one family.

From earliest times Freemasons have been taught to help those in distress without detriment to their dependents and to give their support to outside charities.

Freemasons strive for truth both in their view of themselves and in their dealings with others. Masonry requires high moral standards and its members endeavour to uphold these principles in their public and private lives.
