Cubit Club, a highly successful new venture set up by the Provincial Grand Lodge of Worcestershire, is giving young and new Freemasons a chance to socialise with their fellow members from across the Province and attend events specifically designed to widen their knowledge of Freemasonry
The club was put together by two well experienced members, Paul Wong and Richard Macey, and was an immediate success. Applications flooded in from all parts of the Province, with membership now nearing 200 and continuing to grow.
Robert Vaughan, Provincial Grand Master of Worcestershire, said: ‘The Cubit Club was designed to make new Freemasons feel very welcome and it is working – we are delighted.’
A special Cubit tie has proved popular and enables members to recognise fellow ‘Cubiters’ when visiting lodges.
The bringing together of young minds has given the club a tremendous impetus and ideas are never in short supply. Alongside from visits to such places as Grand Lodge and the Jerusalem Lodge to sample the Bristol Workings, Classes of Instruction are being formed and all manner of social events are being planned.
Two club promotions have also raised substantial funds for Worcestershire Province’s five-year Festival 2022 campaign. Festival Ale was created by a Worcestershire brewery and has so far sold around 5,000 bottles.
Furthermore, 'Cubit Installation Gin' has exceeded all expectations. The club sent a bottle to all Installations across the Province to raffle and more than £10,000 has been raised for the festival.
A socially responsible programme of benefit for the community ranks highly among ventures planned for the autumn.
