W.Bro. Simon E. Banham
Area Chairman

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the North East Area of the Masonic Province of Hampshire and Isle of Wight and to introduce myself as the Chairman of the Area.

As a member of Panmure Lodge, meeting at Aldershot, I am very familiar with the Area and look forward to renewing acquaintances of old and friends of new.

Whilst mirroring the comments of our APGM the website will prove to be of invaluable assistance to members and non-members alike.

Please do explore the content and material relating to the Area centres and Lodges and I hope you will find something of interest, be it an introduction to freemasonry, a new centre or Lodge to visit or a social event to share with your family and friends.

I hope that the enlightenment provided by the website will enhance your enjoyment of our wonderful organisation. – Simon E. Banham
