Short History of the Lodge

Teme Lodge was consecrated on 12th May 1973, so it is by Masonic standards, quite a young Lodge.

Teme Lodge was born out of Sabrina Lodge, No.6595 in the Province of Worcestershire, when in 1972, Sabrina Lodge had in excess of 70 members, and the Deputy Provincial Grand Master at that time, F.H. Griffiths suggested that it would be a good idea that a new Lodge be sponsored.

The Consecration was performed by the Very Worshipful Brother, F.H. Griffiths; Order of St John, and Provincial Grand Master for Worcestershire. He installed Worshipful Brother Reginald W Bonham, MBE, MA into the Masters Chair as the First Master of Teme Lodge - and we have never looked back.

See photographs of the Provincial Team who consecrated the Lodge and installed out First Master and a picture of the Founding members of the Lodge.

We are proud of the Lodge's beginnings and have gone from strength to strength over the past thirty years or so to become a very friendly and relaxed Lodge, who enjoy each others company very much but who strive with fervour to continue the standards and traditions of our Founders, whom we hold in very high esteem.
