Who are we?

Flambard Lodge (Consecrated 1949) as a daughter Lodge of City Lodge No. 3568. Both Lodges on consecration where domineered by Methodist members and were the two Lodges in the city, which were dry Lodges. Flambard Lodge was brought about as City Lodge had surpassed the 100 members mark and it taking an age for members to progress. As time passed and to modernise Flambard Lodge members voted to overturn the dry Lodge status.
