Welcome We’re glad you have discovered the website of the Izaak Walton Lodge of Freemasons. We’ve been in continuous operation for nearly one hundred years and have grown to be the largest Lodge of Freemasons in Staffordshire. Our members come from all walks of life - Architecture, Development, Farming, Publishing. In fact, over its life, its probable that almost every profession and occupation has been represented through its members. So why do people choose to get involved in Freemasonry? The answers are as numerous and as different as the occupations of its members, but most would say “fellowship” - being with people whose outlook on life is similar to yours. “Self- improvement” - an opportunity, through learning, to expand your view of the world and yourself. And “enjoyment”. Yes, it’s true, we actually have fun at our monthly meetings. And of course we are Nationally, one of the biggest contributors to Charity - and we don’t ask the public for money! If you sincerely want to change the way you look at the world - and the way the world looks at you, think about joining us. Contact details are available on the “getting in touch” page of the website. We look forward to meeting you soon.
Being Social We are always looking for an excuse for a great night out and recently, we’ve enjoyed two occasions when we’ve let our hair down, had some fun and raised some cash for our Charity funds. The Izaak Walton World Pool Championship was held at Kenny’s Sports Bar in Stafford and proved that the members of our Lodge like nothing more than a chance to show off their sporting prowess. The event raised £200 for the Staffordshire Provincial Grand Lodge Festival 2024.
To mark the end of our season in May, nearly forty members, friends and partners decamped to the heart of the Black Country and indulged previously hidden passions for the delicious pies and heritage ales at Mad O’Rourke’s famous Pie Factory in Tipton. Despite the unseasonably warm weather, the pies were consumed eagerly and the general opinion was that we should do something similar again soon. This great night out also swelled the funds we’ve earmarked for Charity by over two hundred pounds.  Thanks to everyone who supported these events.
