Hello Brethren

I've been missing for a while. Many years ago I was initiated passed and raised in a Lodge in Hampshire, then i moved jobs and me and my family relocated to Bedford where i joined a new lodge. Unfortunately due to changes in work and an increase in family size i couldnt maintain attendance so i left the lodge. I'd intended it to be temporary but here i am - 8 years on - and still unattached.
Recently i've felt something missing in my life and having watched the Sky TV series i've realised what it is that is missing.
So i'm going to try and find a lodge to join. The problem is i'm now in West Lancs and as far as i know i havent met any fellow masons! Oh the difficulties of a "society with secrets"!!!!
Anyway - I look forward to discussions with you all.

of what use are flambeaux, torches and spectacles to him who shuts his eyes so as not to see?

It is quite rare for an "unattached" Mason not to be welcomed back into the fold either by their Mother Lodge or as a Joining Member of a new Lodge.

You'll have fun in West Lancs, they're generally a nice bunch :)
