Welcome from the Worshipful Master
The man at the head of the Lodge is the Worshipful Master. He normally holds this office for a year, once he has served in other offices within the Lodge, and is elected by the members. Click here to see a welcome message from this years W.M.
How does it work?
A man becomes a Freemason by being Initiated into a Lodge. This is often one which meets nearest to where he lives or works, although there may be reasons why he joins one further away as there are no restrictions on location.
Traditionally you will have been invited to join a Lodge by somebody you know who thought you would make a good Mason. These days, however, applications to become a Freemason are welcomed through a direct enquiry to the Lodge of your choice or the Province where you live.
Interested in joining us?
Our Membership Officer, Graham Walder, is happy to discuss membership with anybody who is interested in becoming a Freemason or would like to join another Lodge - at your home or somewhere mutually convenient.
You can contact Graham by telephone on
or you can send a message using the Contact Form on the "Where To Find Us" page.
News from the Lodge
The RMBI has been caring for older Freemasons and their dependants for over 160 years. They operate 17 residential care homes across England and Wales offering high quality care. Many of these Homes are registered for both residential and nursing care and a number offer specialist dementia care.
Limited sheltered accommodation is offered for those people who prefer to live more independently, but with support nearby in an emergency.
The RMBI has a team of Care Advice Visitors, who know a great deal about health and welfare rights and benefits. They can also give advice on all aspects of the services offered by the RMBI and the other Masonic charities, and by statutory and voluntary agencies.
Woolsack Lodge are proud to actively support the work of the RMBI home at Shannon Court.
