Chipping Campden Lodge is situated opposite the Ancient Market Hall on the south side of the High Street in the beautiful market town of Chipping Campden in the Cotswolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Chipping Campden itself is a very popular tourist destination with many visitors coming from overseas.
Formed in 1934 as a local lodge, the Lodge attracts members from Gloucestershire and the adjoining counties of Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Oxfordshire.
Current members include former Soldiers, Police Officers, Accountants, Civil Servants, Engineers and tradesmen, an eclectic mix. People from all backgrounds would find they have much in common with us.
Without exception every member of Chipping Campden Lodge has a good sense of humour. The ethos of the Lodge is that every member brings a different gift; not all are great ritualists, organisers or Secretary or Treasurer material. However, every brother is afforded the opportunity to become better at what they enjoy doing and indeed those things that they find a challenge. No Brother is looked down on; all are encouraged to succeed. We have all bought in to the Idea of excellence in the Lodge room and enjoyment at the festive board – in every case with a smile on our faces.
Our Ideal Candidate should have a sense of humour and enjoy life. Though he may have risen to great heights he should not have forgotten his roots.
Given that the Lodge has a wide age range we are able to welcome new members at any point in their adult life. However, the younger the man who wishes to join the better for him.
Such is the nature of the Lodge that any person, of any calling, would fit in as long as they had a good sense of humour
