Westoe L4750

Who are we?

Westoe 4750 freemasons lodge was founded in 1925, we have a rich tradition of maintaining masonic principles, friendship, integrity, charity and helping the
local community.

We are a progressive, forward thinking and dynamic lodge, based in South Shields Masonic Hall, nestled in-between Morrisons supermarket and
Brigham & Cowans social club. We are an emulation lodge that meet along with other lodges based in the same hall.

What we do

As Freemasons, we meet at regular intervals, as well as visiting other lodges, either in the same building, or in another town. Our meetings are centred around a Tyled meeting in the temple, the serious stuff, and a festive board, the fun stuff. Regular Masonic business is conducted in the temple, ceremonies, confirmation of minutes etc, then afterwards the brethren retire to enjoy each others company, with a meal and maybe a drink or two.

Our main focus is raising funds for various charitable organisations, many, not
all, are masonic in nature.

Why join us?

Westoe 4750 is a well structured lodge, which enables us to guide or mentor newer members, with dedicated lodge officers, who newer members can contact if they are in need of assistance.

We have many members from all walks of life, and enjoy the diversity of freemasonry.
