Hampden 6483

Is Hampden Lodge 6483 the first in Buckinghamshire?

 
We started fundraising for the Buckinghamshire Masonic Festival 2021 on Sunday 22nd November with lunch for forty-five members of Hampden Lodge, partners and friends at the Temple Street Wine Bar, Aylesbury. Great food and good company ensured a good time was had by all.
 
Many thanks to Lew and Steph Ayres, for once again, arranging this event and to all the brethren who donated prizes for the raffle and heads and tails. A total of £425 was raised for the Buckinghamshire Masonic Festival 2021. Are we the first Lodge in Bucks to start raising funds for this Festival?
 
Temple Street Wine Bar is a little gem sitting in the heart of the old, but attractive part of Aylesbury and a special thanks should go to Dave, the manager, and his staff, for great food and service and a convivial atmosphere.

 

Welcome

Welcome to Hampden Lodge from all forty of us :-)

Brotherly Love - Social Life

There is great social life with our partners and friends and organise a Ladies weekend, Summer BBQ, Christmas Super and Sunday lunches every year. These are a fabulous opportunity for our wives and partners to meet, dress up, dance, enjoy great food and good conversation. We welcome new masons and potential masons to all our social gatherings.

Relief - Charity

Freemasons are a generous fraternity giving time, skills, resources and money. We like to have fun and giving to charity is no different. For example;

  • Grow a catepilar on your face for Movember - auctioning the rights to shave it off.
  • Shave your head - first Brother with the scisors was our Provincial Grand Master, RW Ray Reed.
  • Silent auction - where items donated were sold to the highest sealed bid.

 

Truth - Ceremony

We enjoy sharing our West End ceremony with visitors and learning about the differences. We hold a weekly Lodge of Instruction where the newer brethren get to practise and try to learn the right way of doing things from our Senior Brethren.
