Being over 100 years old, our name derives from the old Saxon language meaning fort in the field. Since our inception in 1918; Integrity, Friendship, Respect and Charity has remained at the forefront of our purpose. However, although our traditions define us, modern life is warmly embraced, whether through supporting our local community or alternatively, in times of need, our own members.
As a fraternal Brotherhood made up of all walks of life, being part of something special and purposeful while having fun, is a large part of who and what we are? We believe that as freemasons, we are here to improve ourselves as men, while enriching the lives of others less fortunate than ourselves.
