About the Northumberland Light Blues Club

The LBC usually meets on the first Monday of each month, at 19:00hrs, at a selected Masonic Building within the Province of Northumberland. The meeting venue and date are confirmed usually one week before the meeting, on the blog page of this website. All brethren are cordially invited to attend the meetings.

The Ashington Masonic Building

The LBC team consists of brethren from various lodges, from across the province, acting as Light Blues Coordinators for the various masonic buildings across the region. The brethren also carry out executive roles such as Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary, etc.

The purpose of the LBC is to support our newer brethren in the craft, our ‘Light Blues’. The LBC organises monthly official visits to various lodges throughout the Province and all Light Blues are encouraged to participate in the visits, which allow newer brethren the opportunity to see new masonic temples and create and expand masonic friendships which are so important to the future of Freemasonry.

The LBC also organises social events which allow our Light Blues the opportunity to meet other brethren at a similar stage in their masonic development.
