WelcomeWe’re glad you have discovered the website of the Izaak Walton Lodge of Freemasons. The Lodge was founded almost one hundred years and has grown to be the largest Lodge of Freemasons in Staffordshire. Our members come from all walks of life - Architecture, Development, Farming, Plumbing, IT, 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.
Once a Freemason…..Worshipful Brother Ian Robertson, who was Master of our Lodge in 2003, moved to Scotland last year and has made several return visits to his Mother Lodge here in Stafford.Whether by luck or good judgement, his new home is just a matter of yards from his local Masonic Lodge, which has proved both convenient and also a new home for his Masonry - albeit of the “Scottish” variety.He has now taken the plunge and moved from being “just” a visitor to joining his new Lodge as its youngest member.The photograph shows Ian being welcomed by the Master of Hopetoun St John Lodge 1232, RW Master Martin Nelson.We’re missing......W.Bros Ray Barnett, Ray Truman and Darryl Davies and Brothers David Breeze and Gerald Bates are all in our thoughts - always.We all wish them a continuing improvement in their health and look forward to seeing them again at our meetings in the New Year.
