Cornwallis Court

Cornwallis Court has been open since 1981 and provides a home for some 74 residents all of who are Freemasons, their wives, widows or female dependants who need the first class care and attention provided by the staff of the Home, including 23 residents in the nursing wing, plus Geoffrey Dicker House which provides further secure accommodation for up to 23 residents who need support for dementia.

The Association of Friends of Cornwallis Court is as old, in fact older than the Home itself. It is a Registered Charity, with its Main Object “to relieve and give assistance by all charitable means the residents of Cornwallis Court”

A Management Committee which includes seven Trustees, representing Lodges and all other Masonic Orders in the Provinces of Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Norfolk conduct the business of the Association. Raising funds to provide assistance, help organising social events, providing transport for the Residents and encouraging the Masonic community to visit the Homes and support fund raising activities to fulfil the “Objective” of the Association.

Since the Association was inaugurated it has received magnificent support from all Masonic Orders in its catchment area, all of them making generous donations to the funds.

However individual membership of the “Friends” is less than one tenth of the total number of the Brethren in the area.

Over 180 Craft Lodges and other Masonic Orders are now “Affiliated” of the Association.

Please Help us Meet our “Object” by becoming a member of the Association

Individual Brethren can become Life Members by making a one-off payment of £25.00 which if donated under Gift Aid scheme increase by 25%.
