We dine on three meetings: September Installation meeting, January "Burns Night" and April "Bard's Night".

The Annual Subscription, payable 1st July, is currently £168 which does not include the dining fees.

Our ritual is based on Emulation Workings.

We currently have 55 members.

The Lodge of Instruction meets from September to April on Tuesdays at 7.30pm at The Masonic Hall, County Hotel.

Here we hope to keep our members and visitors up to date with our masonic and social activities. We also hope that it will give non-members an opportunity to see what we are doing in the local community, and provide them with further information should they wish to join our fraternity.

Please look at our News and Events pages for the very latest information about the Boswells Lodge. Also take a look at our photo galleries to see how we have fun.
