Profile


Old Mill Lodge No. 9186 was consecrated on the 14th March 1986.
It is one of three Lodges that meet in the Old Coffee Mill at Thetford.

The Meetings

The meetings are held on a Wednesday evening at The Masonic Hall, Bridges Walk, Thetford, Norfolk. IP24-2AG.
We meet seven times during the year, the fourth Wednesday of the months of March, April, May, September, October, November and the second Wednesday in December. The meetings start at 6pm-7:30ish, then if you wish you can stay for a meal which finishes about 10:00ish.

The cost of Membership

There is a one-off joining fee to Grand Lodge currently £76.80 inclusive of vat. A one-off initiation fee to cover Lodge costs £40.00. The annual Lodge subscriptions (which cover the annual Grand Lodge fee, a Provincial Grand Lodge fee, rent for the building and admin of the lodge) is currently £120.00. This can be paid monthly when you join.
During the meeting a bowl is passed round for Alms, which is up to you whether you contribute or not. The meals are currently £20.00 for a 3 course meal, there is also a raffle if you wish to participate. Tickets are £5.00 a strip or £1.00 each.

Type of person we are looking for

Do you believe in a supreme being?
If you see someone struggling is your first thought “How can I help?” and “Not my problem” doesn’t occur to you?
Looking to improve yourself generally?
Want the company of likeminded people?

If you have answered yes to all the above, you have a good chance of being successful if you apply to join. For a formal discussion call the Membership Officer on the contact details below.

Social Life

We have various events which we put on during the year. One of which is Brothers, Burgers and Bows, which is an annual event weather permitting. We all meet up at a local archery range and shoot arrows. This is open to all friends’ family and non-masons. Sometimes we have a Christmas Dinner in December and sometimes we have a Summer BBQ. This is a good time to mix with the members who range from late 20’s to early 70’s.

Visiting other Lodges

You may wish to visit other Lodges, locally in our Masonic Hall we have two other Lodges, Thet Lodge No.3334 who meet on a Monday and Breckland Lodge No. 8707 who meet on a Friday. There are also numerous Lodges in a short drive from Thetford. Visiting can either be done by contacting the Lodge Secretary (details on the website) or by contacting your own Lodge Secretary.
If you wish to visit a Lodge abroad, you will need to contact United Grand Lodge to see if it is recognised by Grand Lodge.
You may be asked to leave the meeting for a short while if the meeting is in a higher degree.

Charities

Charities are a main part of being a Freemason.
We try and collect for the lesser known local charities in our Lodge.
The Worshipful Master will name a charity of his choice which the members will try and support throughout his year as Master.
