The Sarsen Club
The Sarsen Club has been founded to give young Freemasons in Wiltshire a means to meet and socialise with Brethren of similar age. Membership is open to any Freemason under 45 years of age and whose Lodge, place of work or home is situated in the Province.
Understanding and having fun
The Sarsen Club's primary role so to organise and host events of a social or masonically educational nature when younger Freemasons can meet each other in an environment which encourages their involvement and develops their knowledge of the fraternity.
The Sarsen Club will proactively work to encourage younger Brethren to support and have an active participation in Lodge meetings and in wider Freemasonry; promote openness and pride in their membership of the Craft and reinforce the message that Freemasonry plays an important role in contemporary modern society.
Masonic education forms a significant role in the work of The Sarsen Club and it is intended that younger Brethren will receive instruction in many important aspects of Masonic heritage including a grounding in the history of Freemasonry.
The importance of Charity will be explained to all members who will be encouraged to practice that virtue which they profess to admire.
