The members of the current Lodge come from all walks of life; accountants, businessmen running a variety of companies, insurance brokers, educationalists, those working in the financial sector of some of our major banks. There are too, a variety of ages all with one common bond, we are all Brothers within Masonry, and that bond is strong and enduring.
In the past, membership came from different areas; the docks played a major role in the development of the city, building was at its height in the two decades after the 2nd world war. Many members had daring and sometimes unbelievable stories of their past experiences of war time and one, the proud recipient of the MM (military medal) for gallantry. There are just one or two of our current members who can recall attending meetings back in the early 70s and enjoying the company of those with great stories to tell.
