My Brother in Law (who lives some distance away) was in The Round Table and I wanted to join something similar. My neighbour was in the Masons and I decided to join as I would then know someone there. I joined thinking it was all about charity but soon realised it was much more than that. It is also about fraternity and character building as well as supporting each other. I have never regretted my decision and would recommend it to anyone who wants to become a better, all-round caring individual.
