The membership is of medium size with 48 members. Members come from a wide variety of backgrounds

About 20 members attend meetings regularly. About a third are under 40yrs, a third between 40 and 65, and a third over 65.

The Lodge plans its activities to compliment the work, family, and other commitments of members.

It aims to maintain a consistent high standard in everything it does.

For new Freemasons there is an initial joining fee of $120.
Thereafter, annual membership fees are approximately $145 per 6 months, payable in April and October.

Social activities are normally at member’s own expense and occur at regular intervals throughout the year.

Vision
To be a thriving, active, Freemasons Lodge that preserves strong traditions, and adds value to the lives of its members and to the community.
