About the Lodge
Dukeries Lodge No. 6289 is a well-attended and friendly Lodge. We meet on the 1st Thursday of each month between Sept and December then February to May. Meetings commence at 6:15pm and is always followed by a sit-down meal.
Our membership are men who share our Masonic values and come from all walks of life. We have a wide age range including members in their twenties through to their eighties.
Ceremonies are conducted in the usual Masonic fashion and we encourage the participation of all Members to help in their development of being a Mason. As a Lodge we are looking to assist the Brethren in their progress through their Masonic life as much as possible.
We understand that taking a front seat is not for all and some members just enjoy being part of the Lodge and look forward to the camaraderie and fraternal friendships that a Lodge offers.
Traditionally the December meeting is referred to as our Olde English Night and is treated a festive meeting with the inclusion of Carol singing and often a brass band to add festive cheer.
We take part in the social calendar at Worksop Masonic Hall where there is a wide range of Dinner Dances, Quiz nights, Race nights, Childrens parties, Remembrance Day and Christmas Events. We have our own white table night held for our ladies and families which is once a year to say thank you for their assistance.
We welcome new members and provide support and integration to those who choose to join us.
Dukeries Lodge was formed in 1946 as the daughter lodge of Pelham Lodge No. 939. We have been an active Lodge ever since and we are looking forward to celebrating our 80th birthday soon.
When we were formed, the membership consisted mainly of Business people in the town of Worksop and this membership has more or less remained the same since. There are no specific common interests in the Lodge save that the Members all enjoy the meetings and the sit down meal afterwards.
We welcome enquiries from men who look to develop themselves using the Masonic principles of Fraternity, Charity and Truth.
