St Keyna Lodge is named after a fabled Welsh Princess who cleared Keynsham of snakes. We are proud of our strong local connection and in the keeping alive of this local folk tale. Formed in 1879 we are a ‘Centenary’ lodge and we are looking forward to celebrating 150 years in 2029. We are a small but friendly lodge and welcome all, with open arms and open hearts.
Our membership whilst modest is dedicated and diverse. We have engineers, tradesmen, shop and business owners, retired bankers and retailers, old sailors and railwaymen. We welcome and encourage diversity in the widest sense. Meeting on the second Monday of most months we work diligently in our formal business upstairs in our lodge room. Afterwards, when we sit to dine down-stairs, we like to relax and work at the enjoyment of our after meetings, at being congenial hosts to our guests, and with our aim at the end of the night to head home with a smile on our faces, a contentment in our bellies and an excitement looking forward to our next masonic event. If our values appeal, we’d really look forward to hearing from you. A phone call or email could change your life for the betterment of yourself and those around you. St Keyna Lodge awaits….
