Grand Master letter



Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organisations. Its roots lie in the traditions and ceremonies of the medieval stonemasons who built our cathedrals and castles. Some rituals are still celebrated today


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.


Freemasonry means different things to each individual – making new friends, meeting likeminded individuals, contributing to society, celebrating a long tradition, experiencing personal growth, taking up a hobby and having fun.  To find out more read the booklet “Freemasonry, what’s it all about?" - here or complete our contact form.


Any man over the age of 21 may join regardless of ethnic group, political views, economic standing or religion, although he is expected to have a faith. Students over 18 can join one of the Universities Scheme Lodges. Women interested in becoming Freemasons should  please contact the Honourable Fraternity of Ancient Freemasons [HFAF] and/or the Order of Women Freemasons [OWF]

How do I join?

If you don't know anyone who is a member and that you can talk to, then you will need to approach your local lodge or one which shares your interests. To do this, complete the contact form here and our membership team will be in touch to help match you with one of the 30 Lodges that meet in 7 Locations within Cambridgeshire.

If you are interested in the Universities scheme, Tradition and continuity are two of the values which characterise the relationship between Freemasonry and universities. It was nearly 200 years ago that the first university Lodge, Apollo University Lodge, was founded at Oxford, with Isaac Newton University Lodge following soon afterwards at Cambridge. Since then many thousands of young men have been introduced to Freemasonry and provided the inspiration for the Universities Scheme. Membership consists of undergraduates, postgraduates, senior members of the universities and alumni, ranging in age from 18 upwards.

We need to properly integrate a suitable landing page with the rest of the site so do you know yet what other changes you intend to make?
