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.

As you should be aware, The Grand Master has suspended all Masonic meetings under United Grand Lodge of England and Supreme Grand Chapter of England for a period of four months with immediate effect.

Whilst the West Lancashire Freemasons Charity office is closed, the 24-hour emergency helpline still remains active. Please call 07709 487 919 should an emergency arise.

Your lodge and chapter almoner has also been issued with specific guidance from the Provincial Grand Almoner via your Local Care Team.
