The Association of Masonic Fellowships
What Is A Fellowship?
It is a state of being together – a communion.
WHO ARE ELIGIBLE?
Senior Citizens with Masonic connections including wives, widows and close relatives or friends, subject to each Fellowship committee’s rules, even those who have taken early retirement.
Usually there is no membership fee but there may be a small entrance fee to cover the costs of tea and biscuits.
Fellowship meetings are usually held on a regular day each month between September and May, at the relative Masonic Hall, but most Fellowships do not meet during July and August.
Each meeting will include an interesting speaker or entertainment in addition to which there is usually a special Summer coach outing and a Christmas lunch.

Beside the Seaside beside the sea:
Before foreign travel became more affordable, the majority took their holidays in the UK.
Now because of Covid, their popularity has seen a huge resurgence. Therefore, step back in time and remember traditional British Holidays from the 50s and 60s.
Eric was a student then, who spent his summers employed in resorts around the British Isles, variously as a cabaret drummer, a redcoat, a photographer and a horse tram conductor and driver.
So, sit back and enjoy his illustrated, light-hearted, humorous recollections of Beside the Seaside beside the sea.
