A history of the Adair Club



The Adair Club is Founded

The Adair Club was founded in 2014 by Sam Mayer and Dave Gleeson with the blessing/guidance of province.

The Adair club was setup as a club within Somerset Masonry for junior members or those new to masonry.  It is not a lodge, but more of an informal association which aims to support newer members to settle into and get the most out of their masonry.  The activities of the club are often social in nature, but it is also a platform to increase and encourage masonic knowledge and education.


Adair Club Host National Conference

The Club was proud to host the 2016 New and Young Masons Club National Conference which was attended by delegates from all over the country.


Tercentenary celebrations

In 2017 as part of the Tercentenary celebrations, we hosted a reception with Sir David Wootton, the then Assistant Grand Master.


Adair Club Become 'Light Blue"

More recently the Club has become a “Light Blue” club, meaning that it’s membership is intended to be those who are yet to receive provincial rank which allows them to wear a dark blue apron.


The club was setup with the support of province and is one of many New and Young Masons Clubs in England and Wales.


Mike Norton Elected Chair

At the AGM on 7th April Mike Norton was elected the new Chairman of the Adair Club. Craig Harding was elected Secretary and Tom Beasley the Membership Officer.
