/ Bro. John Haynes PM

I was initiated into Lodge St Thomas Kilwinning Dalmellington in 1994. I have enjoyed 20+ years in freemasonry, having worked my way through all the Lodge offices, eventually sitting as Right Worshipful Master in 2010. I have been a Lodge office bearer for 25+ years and now occupy the office of Lodge chaplain, which I have done for the last 5+ years. I enjoy the friendship and social aspects of freemasonry, at the Lodge and out with the Lodge. I feel that Freemasonry betters the individual morally and socially.
