Provincial Grand Lodge Yorkshire North and East Ridings.
Welcome to our website whether or not you are a Freemason.
Freemasonry is intended to offer those who are members the opportunity to make themselves better individuals and to demonstrate to others that they are kind, caring and considerate to their families, those in their workplace and all those less fortunate than themselves. This is in a world where often, such laudable qualities are sadly missing.
It is hoped that this site will dispel the myth that we only look after ourselves as you will see that we play an active part in supporting many local and national charities.
A quick visit to the Meeting Places page will show that there is a Lodge holding its meetings near to you – as you would expect of an organisation that is very much a part of the community. If you want to look inside the building – just ask.
To those who are members, the Province hopes to provide further information and guidance; to those of you who are not Freemasons, then we hope that it may give you some insight into our organisation and prove to be of interest.

Freemasonry is open to men of all faiths who are law-abiding, of good character and who acknowledge a belief in a God. Freemasonry is a multi-racial and multi-cultural organisation. It attracts persons of goodwill from all sectors of the community.
HULL FREEMASONS AT THE CHAMBER EXPO
By Peter Spencer, De La Pole Lodge.
14 Brethren represented Freemasons of Yorkshire North and East Ridings from 8 different Hull lodges and manned the stand during the two days. We were also pleased that our Provincial Grand Master, Jeffery Gillyon attended the second day and was able to speak to very many men and women who visited our stand. Our brethren also took part in the Speed Networking events in which they were able to convey the message of Freemasonry and also tried to dispel any myths that existed.
The message of Freemasonry and " What is it all about " was conveyed to those visiting the stand via Displays, A Rolling PowerPoint Presentation and various leaflets. We were extremely pleased at the interest that was shown by very many men and women who visited the stand.
There were also some enquiries on joining freemasonry.
Following on from the very successful introduction of the 'What's It All About Stand' at the Hull & Humber Chamber Expo in June, John Davey collected all the equipment & took it on its 'Roadshow ' to the Expo at Middlesbrough, ably assisted by Colin Hunton.
It was an early start for Ian Williams of Zetland Lodge, Andy Morley of Ferrum Lodge, and the Assistant Provincial Grand Master, Malcolm Dabbs, to 'set out their stall' and negotiate the technicalities of getting the Power Point up and running.
