From the Secretary's Desk


William J Slater (Bill)

Lodge Secretary


Thank you for visiting the Old England Lodge website. From the history of our Lodge you can see that we are steeped in tradition but we move with the times and are a very vibrant and thriving Lodge. We have nearly fifty members, from all walks of life, and many different religions.

If you enjoy meeting people and striking up new friendships and have a sincere wish to help others by giving to charity (whatever you can afford) then why not think about joining us. We are a society of men who endeavour to do good in the community and practice ancient rituals with a moral story. To join us you will have to profess a belief in a supreme being which allows members of many faiths and religions to stand side by side in our Lodges.

If you are a man over the age of twenty one you can join. However if your father was a freemason you would be able to join at eighteen. You may think that masonry is for men only; well this is only partly true. Indeed only men can be a member of our Lodge and take part in our ceremonies, but Old England has a dynamic social scene and our wife’s and partners are involved in our social activities. We have a BBQ during the summer months, curry nights, Sunday lunches and much more. Each year the culmination of the year is a Ladies Festival which raises money for the Master of the Lodge and his Partner’s charities. This year it was held in Stratford upon Avon over the May Bank Holiday

I can tell you much more, so if you are interested contact me using the contacts page, maybe come and meet us over a drink and make up your own mind about us.

Freemasonry is a way of getting to know oneself, seeking truth, making friends, helping others and enjoying a fuller life.
