Welcome to the Homepage of Lodge St. David (Tarbolton) Mauchline No.133, the Mother Lodge of Robert Burns.
The aim of this site is to promote and support the Lodge, its activities, and the aims of Freemasonry in general, and hopefully will be of interest to Masons and Non-Masons alike.
We are very proud of our Lodge Heritage.
Scotland's National Bard, Robert Burns was Initiated into Lodge St. David on the 4th July 1781, Passed and Raised on 1st October the same year, making this for all time his Mother Lodge.
The original Charter from Grand Lodge, and the mallet used in the Lodge at the time of the Initiation of Robert Burns are on display and can still be seen at any of our Regular Meetings.
More general information on Robert Burns the Freemason can be found in a section of the site dedicated to this topic, as well as links to sites of special interest to the Burns enthusiast.
If, after browsing these webpages, you would like to know more about this Lodge, Freemasonry in General, or have any comments about the site content please use the link on the Contact Us page to contact the Lodge Secretary.
All Brethren are welcome to join us at our regular meetings which take place on the 4th Tuesday, Sept. - May, at 7.30pm. (Restrictions apply currently, please see the syllabus page for details).
As our 250th Anniversary celebration approaches, St. David lapsed members are particularly encouraged to seriously consider coming back to the Lodge. The Grand Master Mason has granted a temporary amnesty which allows lapsed members to pay only one annual test fee (currently £60) to be once again in good standing with the Lodge. Please act now before the amnesty ends.
The Lodge also has an annual open day for members of the public to view the above artefacts on the last Saturday in May (the day of the Mauchline Holy Fair), with tea/coffee, soup, sandwiches, toasties and a selection of home baking being served from 11 am till 3pm.
A very warm welcome awaits you.
We hope that you enjoy your visit to our webpages and would encourage you to help us continue our work in the local community by using the link below to make a donation.
