As the country begins to exit lockdown, we are all looking forward to seeing the people we love and doing the things we have missed. For the members of the Granite Lodge in Leicester, this means being able to resume meetings with the people that have supported us through this trying time.

Freemasonry aims to aid its members to be the best they can be. For themselves, their families, and society in general. One of the core principles of Freemasonry is charity. The efforts of Freemasons during the Pandemic have been extensive. From donations to food banks to continued grants to local and nationwide charities. Last year, Freemasons provided more than 18.5 million hours of volunteer work throughout the country to help those in need.

We would encourage all people in Leicestershire who have an interest in Freemasonry, and wish to enjoy each other’s company and do good within the local community, to contact us through our website or via social media. If you are interested in learning more, or to join the Freemasons, we can arrange an informal chat to discuss the next steps. 

Members of The Granite Lodge, their family, and friends will be walking parts or all of the Leicestershire Round to raise funds for charity.

The official countdown is on for hundreds of Freemasons, family, and friends, who will be participating in a walk to raise funds for the Leicestershire & Rutland 2022 festival over the two weekends of the 2nd & 3rd and 9th & 10th October 2021.

The walk will be the famous Leicestershire Round, and depending on ability and fitness levels, people will either complete a short route, one day, or the entire route consisting of four parts, each covering twenty-five miles per day. Some are even preparing to tackle the entire distance in one go!

There is no barrier to entry, anyone can participate regardless of age or ability. With the recent restrictions on exercise being relaxed, preparations can now start formally, however remaining vigilant about safety and social distancing.
