The Province of West Kent Freemasons



Who are we

Welcome to West Kent Freemasons

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.

In 2015, the West Kent Freemasons donated over £3.25m towards the Masonic Samaritan Fund, which supports both Masonic and Non-Masonic Charities and many hundred of thousands of pounds continue to be donated to worthy and deserving causes across the Province, many of which receive no assistance from National, Local or any other form of funding sources.

But for most of us, it is a thoroughly enjoyable hobby which provides a tremendous amount of pleasure for us and our families alike.

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.

Last year, we aimed to raise £60,000 to assist the six local Mayors in our Province with a £10,000 donation each, to support their chosen charities during their year in Office.  This CALM Appeal (Community Appeal for Local Mayors) was hugely successful – with our generous West Kent members, raising over twice that amount, with a final total in excess of £160,000.  This allowed us to give a further donation to the incoming Mayors, and to support a number of other highly deserving local charities within our Community.

I’m often asked what inspired my passion for Freemasonry. The answer is simple - being a Boy Scout. Sadly, we said farewell to one of the finest leaders I have met, withseveral members of our Province, who was a real inspiration to me in my youth - rest in peace Mick Ritte ...

Family Matters First

Freemasonry gives people the ability to do some good and have some fun at the same time.

Many men of today like to have sense of direction and purpose, like getting out into  the community and doing something worth while. We greatly encourage family and friends to get involved too in our charitable and community work. It simply makes you feel good too.

Freemasonry supplies you with the tools, you just have to learn how to use then.

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.

What have we done recently ?

An elderly woman whose home was raided by burglars shortly before Christmas has received a welcome hand from some kind strangers to help refurbish her new home.

“As the Provincial Grand Master for the Masonic Province of West Kent, I am delighted to welcome you to our website.”
