The Old Paston Masonic Lodge # 8075
In true masonic fashion, I know nothing about this except to say - many an Old Pastonian have been members of the OP Freemason Lodge. There is even some evidence that Nelson was a Mason.
It is not connected to the Society of Old Pastonians other than that and I don't know what they get up to.
I do know they were 50 years old in 2016.
Occasionally, the Lodge has White Table open Dinners (open to all), and so there are some details here, if we are notified.

Old Pastonians Lodge - 50th Anniversary Dinner .... 2016
March 2016 represented a significant milestone for Old Pastonian Lodge as it now 50 years since it was consecrated on 29th March 1966 by Bishop Herbert, the Provincial Grand Master at the time.
To celebrate this and your connection with the School, 6th Form College and/or the Lodge we are holding a special ‘White Table’ dinner following our regular meeting on 6th May, the one nearest to the consecration date. We hope that current members, past/resigned members, guests masonic and nonmasonic and members of the Old Pastonian Society whether Freemasons or not along with their wives/partners/friends can join us.
Past Lodge members would be especially welcome as we know that the foundations and reputation of this great Lodge was built on the work done by the former members. You will know that members attending have fallen in recent years but we seem to be turning the corner with two new joining members and two Old Pastonians about to re-join.
If you are able to send in/loan any photographs, memories or anecdotes to enhance the evening we will be most grateful but these should be with me by 29th April. Should you be unable to attend but wish to support the celebration then a contribution would be received as a very generous gift.
We will be holding a short Lodge meeting – opening, Minutes, matters arising, closing, thus amounting to 20 minutes or so during which time the ladies/partners/friends will be entertained by a very personable, amusing raconteur.
Address will be: 47 St Giles Street, Norwich
