Yeovil Masonic Veterans Lunch Meetings
This initiative set up so enthusiastically by the late W Bro Tony Robins, was well supported and was too good and too valuable a gathering for us to let it slip away or lapse.
The date of the next meeting at the Bell Inn, 207 Preston Rd, Yeovil, Somerset BA20 2EW, will be found in the “Future Events” item on the home page. All Masons are welcome together with wives, partners, family and friends to join this informal get together. Brethren of all the Yeovil Lodges are cordially invited to drop in for a coffee or beer and a chat, maybe lunch. The Bell has an excellent and wide menu with meals for all tastes and prices.

The Lodge meets at The Masonic Hall, Yeovil, on the 2nd Fridays in February, April, September, October and December. Meetings start at 1800, with the evening culminating with a festive board (dinner).
As the Lodge name suggests we have predominantly a Naval membership (serving and past), today, the lodge members consist of brethren from all threes services, both ex and serving members of all ranks, along with a wide selection of brethren who have no connection with the armed services, but wanted to join a lodge with a strong spirit of comradeship, long traditions and to be among brethren they would be happy to call shipmate.
We pride ourselves as being a friendly bunch, warm and welcoming. We have striven to maintain the traditions of the Lodge that were set by our founders both, in our ceremonies and at the festive board, such ‘Hands to Dinner’ being piped, and a tot of rum for all at the festive board.
An ideal candidate would be someone looking for comradeship within an established framework, who wants to put something back to the local and wider community, who is able and prepared to commit to the regular meetings of the Lodge, and importantly has full support of their family. Existing Masons of any background, maybe new to the area, wishing to continue their Masonry are always welcome to join us.
