The Somerset Travelling Trowel Scheme - Introduced in 2012 as an attempt to foster closer links by encouraging fraternal visits between Lodges. It has proved very popular with Lodge members.
The aims of the scheme:
1. To encourage a wider sphere of visiting between Somerset lodges and increase masonic links and friendships.
2. To bring the Province closer together by fostering a spirit of mutual support and fraternity.
3. To encourage less experienced Masons to visit other Lodges.
4. The scheme will also help to support those Lodges that are perhaps small in Membership as well as those who receive relatively low numbers of visitors.
Visits to Installation Meetings will be avoided so that Master Mason will feel free to join in.
The commitment for each Lodge will be to undertake one visit every two years.
