Welcome to The Prince of Wales Lodge No 951 one of the HillTop Freemason Lodges meeting in Stow on the Wold.
GLOUCESTERSHIRE FREEMASONS SIGN THE ARMED FORCES COVENANT. The Prince of Wales Lodge is proud to support our Armed Forces. The Armed Forces Covenant is quite simply a pledge by any organisation choosing to sign it, to ensure anybody that is serving, or has served, or a family member of someone that is serving in our Armed Forces shouldn’t face any disadvantage. That could be in areas such as education, healthcare and especially employment. If you would like to find out more click here
