On first entry to OPM Lodge there is an initial fee of £??? to pay which covers administration and your initial subscription. After some months, an apron will need to be purchased and this can cost between £30 and £60 depending on type and quality.
Every year in November members pay an annual subscription of £??? which covers membership and the administrative cost of running the Lodge. In addition we ask for a donation to charity, but it is entirely up to the individual member what the amount of that donation is. Whatever the amount, it should always be without detriment to the member’s other responsibilities.
It is usual to have a meal after each of our meetings, but it is not compulsory. The current cost of the meal is £15, seven times a year and £18 once a year for the meal following the Installation of the new Worshipful Master of the Lodge.
The annual subscription, charity donation and dining costs can be paid monthly by standing order in order to spread the cost over 12 months, or the meal can be paid for before each meeting, whichever you prefer.
