Freemasonry is a complete part of the Nottinghamshire community at all levels. There are some 3200 Freemasons in the county from almost every walk of life, ethnic background and faith. On almost every night of the week there is a Masonic meeting being held somewhere in Nottinghamshire.
Masonic halls are located in Nottingham city centre and the surrounding towns of West Bridgford, Chilwell, Mansfield, Worksop, Retford and Newark. As well as Masonic meetings these halls are in constant use for community and private functions. A number of them are even licensed for weddings. Wherever you are in Nottinghamshire you can be assured of a warm welcome at a Masonic hall.
Freemasonry is well known for its commitment to charity and this is evident within the Nottinghamshire community. As well as numerous smaller projects, Nottinghamshire masons focus on at least two major local charities each year. Recent projects have seen large donations made to the Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire Air Ambulance, hospices and youth initiatives.
Of course there is a strong social side to Freemasonry in Nottinghamshire and many internal associations allow our members, partners and guests to pursue their interests in the arts, sports and pastimes.
Our Annual Church Service held in Southwell Minster is always a major occasion and the civic leaders join us to celebrate our part in the community. In fact in every aspect of Nottinghamshire life you will find freemasons taking full and active roles.
