Our Centre's History

The Centre Beginnings


The Eastleigh Masonic Centre situated on the corner of Cranbury Road and Leigh Road in Eastleigh was built about 1920 as a Methodist Church.  The building  however became surplus to their requirements in the late 1950's.  The Hampshire Lodge of Emulation No 1990 a masonic lodge, who met at the Old Eastleigh Town Hall, negotiated a purchase price of £5,000.00.  The first masonic meeting was held in September 1960.  At that time no alcoholic licence was available due to restrictions in the original deeds.

The Evolutin Of The Centre


However in 1977 a licence was negotiated with the authorities and an extension to the building  constructed and opened in September 1977.  This licence is held by the "Eastleigh Masonic Dining Club" the managing agents for the building's owners the Hampshire Lodge of Emulation No 1990.  This facility has made the building  available for the Community to hire for social & charitable events.

Today


Since 1977 continual updating and maintenance has made the property a valuable asset to Eastleigh's masonic and residential community.  The Centre is currently home to Five Masonic Lodges, One Chapter & One Lodge Of Instruction and regularly holds charity events and works with local businesses.
