Province of West Kent
As the Provincial Grand Master of the Province of West Kent, I would like to welcome you to our website.
I imagine the first thing that most people will ask is: “What is Freemasonry?” Put simply, Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organisations.
However, in my experience, Freemasonry means different things to different people. For some of our members it is a chance to meet new people, make new friends, and enjoy social events. For others, it’s about taking an active part in supporting deserving causes. But for most, it is an enjoyable hobby.
In 2015, the West Kent Freemasons donated over £3.25m towards the Masonic Samaritan Fund, which supports both Masonic and Non-Masonic Charities. Over the next few years, we will be supporting a range of other charitable causes, both as a Province, and through individual local Lodges.
Our aim is to “Make a Difference” in all of our activities – whether this is through individual Lodges, our interaction with each other as members, or our relationship with the community as a whole.
We are proud of the achievements of the Province of West Kent – and whilst we strive for excellence, we also enjoy our Freemasonry – and hope to encourage others to share that experience with us.
I wish you well, and look forward to hearing from you soon.
Mark Estaugh, Provincial Grand Master, Province of West Kent
