Trafalgar Lodge 971

A Society of Upright Men

We offer membership to men of any race or religion who are of good reputation and not atheists or agnostics. All applicants must confirm that they are aged 21 years or above and come forward voluntarily with no expectation of obtaining material advantage.

We exclude from membership those Freemasons who abuse the trust placed in them in their private or public lives or who fail to uphold the rules of Freemasonry.

Our ceremonies contain dramatic presentations of moral lessons and include:

Traditional passwords and signs of recognition which are only used in those ceremonies

Solemn promises which are no different from those taken elsewhere

Traditional penalties from an earlier age which are symbolic, not literal. They allude to the pain any honest man should feel at the thought of violating his word.

We give as generously as our wealth will allow and through voluntary work in the community.

Our society is for men only but there is a parallel and totally independent Masonic organisation for women.

Enjoy Each Other’s Company

Our social activities and our enjoyment of Freemasonry cannot be over-emphasised. The objectives of Freemasonry are serious but our members are ordinary, fun-loving individuals who seek a good balance in life. Most of our meetings include a social dimension where the focus is on good fellowship and enjoyment in the company of like-minded friends.

Our family and friends are important to us and are actively encouraged to participate in our social activities just as we participate in theirs.

Develop Team Spirit and Fellowship

We develop team spirit and fellowship through all our activities and gain an understanding of the needs of others which in turn leads to increased tolerance and respect. We therefore consider Freemasonry to be a way of life which, when practised, makes us good citizens.

Happiness is the outcome of such activity. It cannot be expressed in words but can only be experienced in the heart. As such it is sometimes described as the only true mystery of Freemasonry.
