What, you may ask is being a Freemason all about? Being a member of one of the worlds oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organisations means different things to different members. Some may regard it as a way to make new friends, others may regard it as a way to become part of a great charitable body whilst others use it as their hobby.
Whatever the motive behind becoming a member, those who join are expected to be of a good moral character and are encouraged to speak openly to others about the organisation and its principles. Members are taught to uphold a moral and ethical approach to life with values based on integrity, kindness, honesty and fairness whilst having a high regard of the interests of the family and caring for those less fortunate and in need. In this respect, today, as from the earliest days of the order, charity plays an important part and large sums are donated to charities both nationally and locally.
