A circle of upright pillars
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 the age of 40 years of age and whose lodge, place of work or home is situated in the Province.
The Sarsen Club’s primary role is to organise and host events of a social or masonically educational nature where younger Freemasons can meet each other in an enviroment which encourages their involvement and develops their knowledge of the fraternity.
The Sarsen Club encourages 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 they profess to admire.
Sincerely & fraternally

The Hall of Fame - an incentive to visit...
A new initiative by the Sarsen Club sees its members being encouraged to visit each of the 44 Lodges which meet at 18 Masonic Centres around the Province.
Watch out for young Freemasons as they arrive at your Lodge with their Wiltshire Masonic Passport in a challenge which will see them journey to all four corners of Wiltshire. From Salisbury in the South, across the Plain to Swindon and Highworth in the North; Marlborough in the East and Bradford on Avon in the West.
Awards will be given out at the Sarsen Club AGM to the club members who have achieved the most visits in both the Lodge and Masonic Centre challenge.
The challenge is described by Sarsen Club Chairman Ryan Hartley as ‘Not a race, but more of an incentive to see what Wiltshire Freemasonry has to offer, and to meet your fellow Sarsen Club Members’.
A special award will be given to members who visit all 44 Lodges in the Province, with every Club member achieving this goal being inducted into the Sarsen Club Hall of Fame.
The Sarsen Club, in collaboration with Prorsum Semper LBC from Gloucestershire and Essex Cornerstone Club came together for the third 'Young Masons Virtual Inter-Club Social'. On the success of our first two virtual socials in which we heard from Shaun Butler, Communications Manager at UGLE and the MW Grand Master, Christine Chapman from HFAF, Matthew Brown(PS), Barry Hayward(EC) and myself turned our attention to the latest edition.
The virtual socials work based on the principle that each edition of the social, we introduce a new NYMC into the mix alongside a guest speaker. The main focus is the new club. The chairman of the new club will introduce his club and speak for up to ten minutes about the clubs history, membership and achievements. The other previous chairmen or designated speakers, will welcome the new NYMC on behalf of their respective club. So far, along side our three clubs, we have welcomed Leeds LBC and Leicestershire and Rutland LBC.
Dr David Staples was the latest guest to speak to the Brethren from five NYMCs. The subject we wanted him to discuss was 'Masonry and the Modern Man'. This subject would cover how Masonry has changed and adapted over the years to suit the younger Freemason and how our day to day lives and our love for Masonry can work in harmony with each other. We also ask the Brethren to submit questions to the guest speaker for a Q&A. We had over 90 Brethren join the Zoom meeting, hosted by myself and Barry from the Essex Cornerstone Club.
Our attention now points to our next meeting where we have secured the Provincial Grand Master of Kilwinning Lodge No.0, in Ayrshire, Scotland. Before the forming of The Grand Lodge of Scotland in the year 1736, Mother Kilwinning was a Grand Lodge in her own right, issuing charters and warrants to Lodges wishing to enjoy the privileges of Freemasonry. We hope this will be of interest to the five NYMCs already involved, plus the latest addition, which will be the Holywell Club, of Sussex or the Trelawny Club of Cornwall.
