Welcome to Amphibious Lodge

We are one of the forty nine lodges which make up the Province of Dorset. We meet in Wimborne, just one of the seventeen meeting venues across the county.

Amphibious is a Lodge with a strong services background, you'll notice our banner is based on the combined services banner. We warmly welcome anyone interested in finding out more about Freemasonry and of course visiting Brethren from other lodges, to get in touch.

Remembrance Day Parade 

Our hard working IPM, Terry Fuller, is collating a list of everyone that will be attending the Remembrance Day March, in order for the parade marshals to get an idea of numbers. The schedule for the day will be as follows;

The 2018 Remembrance Day Service will be held in Wimborne Minster at 1500 hrs on Sunday 11th November. more...

Amphibious declares its support 

At our installation meeting back in September our WM, WBro George, declared that in addition to Forest Holme and the Victoria Cross Trust he wanted to support a local group or charity that worked closely with those suffering from dementia.

After much searching George has decided that during his year we will support the Greenwood Club, part of the Dorset Forest School. more...

Another donation to a very worthy cause 

It was a great pleasure for our Charity Steward, Stew McKell, to visit the Livability home at Holton Lee, Poole recently. He was there to hand over another cheque to Steve Masterman the home representative for £1,700.00 on behalf of the Brethren of Amphibious, in support of the exceptional work the home does.

Livability was one of the chosen charities for Alan Ewart during his year as Master, along with Bournemouth Above and Beyond. more...

Facebook is growing fast 

We're pleased to report that our Facebook page is growing week on week. We are publishing posts at least every other day with news and stories about Freemasonry in general or with a masonic theme, not just about Amphibious Lodge and Chapter.

If you've not had a look yet then you can log on to your own Facebook account and search for @amphibiouslodge9050 or www.facebook. more...

Our charities for 2018-19 are announced

They will be the Victoria Cross Trust, Forest Holme Hospice, Alzheimer's charities locally in Dorset and of course our continued support for the Todnoy project. more...

Amphibious just keeps giving 

Earlier today (Sunday) our hard working Charity Steward, Stew McKell and his wife Irene paid a visit to Amedeo Angiolini, the principle of the Bournemouth Above and Beyond Trust. The trust is just one of our chosen charities for 2017-18. Stew had the pleasurable task of presenting a cheque for £500 on behalf of the brethren of Amphibious Lodge to the Bournemouth Above and Beyond Trust. more...

Todnoy is in our thoughts 

As we've reported before, Amphibious have continued to support the village of Todnoy in Thailand for over ten years now, a project driven by the late WBro Tony Birch and supported by many, many others. It all started with a request by the local monks to assist the refurbishment of the Buddhist temple in the village. more...

Time's running out fast! 

The clock is ticking, it'll soon be time for our Installation Meeting on the 12th September and our Assistant Secretary reports that places for the festive board are filling fast with just a few places left.

If you want to attend you'll need to book in by this coming Friday to avoid any disappointment, all places are on a first come - first served basis. more...

Facebook is certainly growing fast! 

We're working hard to develop our Facebook page, publishing new articles every other day. These cover a vast array of subjects from updates on our events to pieces of masonic interest and history.

We're also publishing pieces on our own history and artefacts. So far we've covered our VSL, the rough and smooth ashlars, our nine o clock bell and today there's a piece about the tyler's sword. more...

Social media is growing stronger than ever 

As well as our presence here on the Lodge MIDAS website, we also have a very successful Twitter account and now Facebook too! Our Twitter account is fast approaching 1,500 followers and growth on Facebook is steadily going up as well.

We want to spread our news as far and wide as possible, not only to other masons but to the general public so if you visit either Twitter or Facebook please drop by and give us a like or follow. more...

Events update 

Our planned events for the next few months have just been updated, including details of how to book in. Take a look at 'Our social events' listed on the Information bar on the right and remember to invite all your family and friends along too!

Events are also listed on the 'Calendar at a glance' page. more...


Do you know in a few days time it'll be August, where does the time go! That means there's only a few weeks before our Installation meeting at the beginning of September. Here are a few facts about August from our friends at Wikipedia, just in case you didn't know.

August is the eighth month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian calendars, and the fifth of seven months to have a length of 31 days. more...

The challenge is made! 

Well we've taken that big step and thrown down the gauntlet (we suppose it should be a white glove really) to all other Lodges in Dorset, particularly Kinson Lodge 5331.

We're going to enter the Great Dorset Masonic Raft Race next year and intend on winning that pesky trophy! There was a bit of a mix up this year with age restrictions for competitors, but that's all sorted out now and we're hard at work mustering up our crack team of intrepid rowers. more...
