The Haven of Rest L4350

Who are we?

Haven of Rest (4350), which has recently celebrated its centenary birthday, is a vibrant and progressive masonic lodge with a young core membership. The progressive lodge officers positions are currently filled with masonically young men with an average age of 43, making it an attractive prospect for young professional men who would prefer a lodge at the end of the working week which also allows for the weekend family time to be uninterrupted. With a good mix of youth and experience Haven of Rest Lodge boasts dedication to the pillars of freemasonry, whilst allowing the social and personal enjoyments of members to work in partnership with their family and social responsibilities. The lodge feels this gives its members a more well rounded appreciation of freemasonry and how it makes better masons and therefore better men. This dynamic of the lodge puts it in quite a unique position for the individuals who wish to join masonry later in life, or perhaps to return to masonry following a break, due to its diverse demographics. 

The lodge has both 100 years of proud tradition and history whilst boasting a membership which is progressive in nature. This can be seen on all sides of the lodge room and helpsfoster a ‘something for everyone’ mantra with a wide range of ideas and opinions on both life and masonic topics.
