Chairman’s Page

It is a great pleasure and a privilege to be appointed as Group Chairman of the South Eastern Group of Lodges and Chapters.

Our Group of Lodges and Chapters is one of 22 groups within the Province of West Lancashire which is one of the largest Masonic Provinces. Our Group meets in the Urmston Masonic Hall, Westbourne Road, Manchester and at the Grange Club, Edgeley Road, Stockport. We have 15 Lodges and 4 Chapters meeting in the group.

Freemasonry is well established in this area with our oldest Lodge being  over 140 years old, but although some traditions have been upheld over the years, we are continuing to move with modern times which is clearly seen here on our Website.

It has been designed to be user-friendly and I hope that it will encourage you to become more involved with the Group either as a Lodge or Chapter member or as a visitor. All our Lodge and Chapter meetings are listed as well as the many social events which are taking place at both Group and Provincial level.

These social events have a warm and friendly atmosphere to which our partners, family and friends are most welcome.

If you are not a Mason, I hope our Website will raise your awareness of Freemasonry and what it truly stands for. If this is the case and you would like to know more, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are very approachable and sociable men who would be only too happy to talk to you on a more personal level. Any questions and/or contact details can be left on the relevant pages.

Once again thank you for sharing your time with us and I hope you enjoy your visit to our website.

Gareth Jones
Group Chairman
