Moose International is a fraternal organisation based on family values. We raise money for charities, and provide support to each other. Membership of Moose is open to anyone of 21 yrs or over. The Lodge meets on the fourth Thursday of each calendar month, 7.30 pm, at Berrow village hall, and we believe in having fun whilst raising money for our numerous charities. Our ladies circle meet on the same evening as the brothers, also at Berrow village hall, and independently support national and local causes in their own right. Anyone is welcome to join.
