The Ashley Lodge No. 6525

We are a Masonic Lodge that meets ten times a year in Poole, on the Last
Friday of every month apart from July and August when there are no meetings
and December when we meet on the 2nd Friday.

We are a friendly, Friday night Lodge with members from all backgrounds, both ex-military and civilian, young and old, all of whom pride themselves on the quality of and the enjoyment generated by our meetings. We take pleasure in having fun whilst maintaining the standards and traditions of our Founders, making us happy to meet and sorry to part.

The Lodge warmly welcomes anyone interested in finding out more about Freemasonry and visiting Brethren from other lodges.

January 2020 Regular Meeting 

The end of January and the beginning of February saw two distinct days of contrast for Poole Masonic Hall and the members of The Ashley Lodge.

The new decade for Lodge started off on Friday 31ST with a 3RD degree where James Dunn was made a Master Mason in an excellent ceremony conducted by our W.M. and his team. The ceremony was conducted with all the respect and solemnity fitting this occasion whilst also reflecting the warm friendship of a shared experience

September 2019 Regular Meeting 

Our first meeting after the summer break on Friday 27th September went off with bang. A long evening, starting an hour earlier than normal, with the Provincial Grand Master for Dorset opening a session of Provincial Grand Lodge in order to promote and invest 18 of his Visiting Officers and senior Brethren. Aided by his full team this part of the evening had all the pomp and ceremony associated with a full Provincial meeting. more...
