Freemasons believe in an ethical approach to life. Our values are based on integrity, kindness, honesty and fairness. Members are urged to regard the interests of the family as paramount. However, Freemasonry also teaches and practises concern for people, care for the less fortunate and help for those in need.

A warm welcome from Graham Williams, group chairman
Welcome to our website. Freemasonry has been practised locally for 100’s of years. The first lodge in the area was constituted in Prescot in 1753 and is still thriving with an enthusiastic membership. Freemasonry in the group is not restrictive in terms of cost or occupation.
The cost of lodge membership is much less than that of the Golf Club and our membership embraces most occupations including those of lorry and bus driver, solicitor, tradesman, teacher, railwayman, pharmacist, surveyor, cleric, businessman and police officer.
