Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organisations.
Freemasonry has always been about making good men better. Individuals aim to shape their lives round five core principles.
Integrity: We say what we mean, and we keep our promises.
Kindness: Although our families come first, we believe in playing a key role in our communities and give time and money to charitable ventures.
Honesty: We pride ourselves on openness, about what being a Freemason means for us.
Fairness: We treat everyone as equal – we listen to others, explore any differences and look for common ground.
Tolerance: We respect the opinions of others and behave with understanding towards them.
