Usually you would know someone who is a member and they will suggest that you might wish to consider it.
Alternatively if you have a friend who is a member you can simply ask them. There are no hard and fast rules but the concept that if you ask then no-one will recommend you to join is a myth! Inevitably there will be many men who are interested but don’t necessarily have a friend who is already a member.
At the bottom of this page is a contact form for you to register your interest, once completed a member of our team will contact you.
Following the intitial contact we will arrange to meet you or invite you to one of our social functions if we have one at the time and this will give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. Depending on which Lodge suits you and assuming you wish to go ahead then a suitable date for your initiation will be determined. At no time will we attempt to persuade you to join, it will be up to you to decide in your own time.
