Why become a Freemason?

Every Freemason has his own reason for joining.  For many, Freemasonry acts as a ‘constant’, providing them with a unique combination of friendship, belonging and structure, with many Freemasons saying they have made valuable lifelong friendships. Above all and for most, Freemasonry is simply an enjoyable hobby.

One of the members of our Lodge wrote this blog post which describes nine reasons why you might wish to become a Freemason.

Who can join the Lodge?

As quoted on the United Grand Lodge of England website:
Any man over the age of 21 may join regardless of ethnic group, political views, economic standing or religion although he is expected to have a faith. Students over 18 can join one of 73 Universities Scheme Lodges.” So there is a need for you to acknowledge and sustain a belief in a Supreme Being.
