This is the website of the Bradstow Lodge No.2448. The Bradstow Lodge is in the Province of East Kent and affiliated to the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE).
The three principles of Freemasonry are Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth. As such, a good Freeemason will use these principles to guide him through life.
BROTHERLY LOVE - The concern which each Freemason has for his Brother, which is readily shown by tolerance and respect for the beliefs, opinions and practices of his fellows and his willingness to care for his Brother and that Brother's dependants.
RELIEF - The Freemason is by nature and teaching a charitable man. He will assist all those less fortunate. He will care for and support his community - local, national and international.
TRUTH - The Freemason believes in Truth in all things, in honesty and integrity in his personal, business and public life, in fair dealings and in firm standards of decency and morality.
As every man progresses in Life by education so every Freemason is taught how he can be a better Man.
This is done by a series of degrees - each degree educates him and answers some questions but leaves a door beyond. When the candidate has grasped the teaching of one degree, that door is opened by his progress to the next degree.
