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?

In order to become a Freemason you must have a belief in a Supreme Being, all religions are equally welcome and respected. You must also be male and at least 21 years old. Certain lodges, typically those tied to Universities can initiate at 18, but for the Hungerford Lodge the minimum age is 21.
