The Ashley Lodge meets ten times a year in Poole, on the Last Friday of every month apart from July and August when there are no meetings and December when we meet on the 2nd Friday.

Ashley is a friendly, Friday night Lodge with members from all backgrounds, both ex-military and civilian, young and old, all of whom take pleasure in the quality of and the enjoyment generated by our meetings. We pride ourselves on having fun whilst maintaining the standards and traditions of the institution and of our founders, making us happy to meet and sorry to part.

The Lodge warmly welcomes anyone interested in finding out more about Freemasonry and visiting Brethren from other lodges.

September 2021 Regular Meeting 

Friday 24th September 2021 was our first full night back for 18 months. The joy of our return was tinged with a little sadness as we remembered our friends and Brethren who had passed away during the suspension.

All things considered we had a good turnout with 27 attending the meeting and 23 staying to enjoy a meal of Pie, chips and peas followed by fruit salad finished off with the Masonic favourite of cheese and biscuits with coffee. more...
