Who are we?
Tees lodge is a friendly Lodge with Masons of all ages, we try not to take things too seriously and have fun whilst always doing our best with the ceremony.
What we do
Tees Lodge is the oldest Lodge in Stockton on Tees being founded way back in 1845.
We have a long and distinguished history with members coming from many backgrounds and livelihoods both then and to the present day. The Lodge has members from all walks of life and new members can be assured of meeting different people and making in many cases long lasting lifetime friendships.
We have a long tradition of supporting local charities, holding enjoyable social events for members and families. We are also proud to support our members and their families in time of need. Our Lodge meetings and ceremonies are true to Masonic tradition and although carried out with dues respect are mixed with occasional humour as is fitting to the Lodge character. After each meeting we have a meal where we enjoy each other’s company and our visitors. We enjoy singing our Masonic Songs during this time and observe the usual Masonic Toasts. New members are welcomed with open arms from all walks of life and different faiths.
