The Lodge had 32 Founders comprising 17 Past Masters and 15 Brethren. They came from a variety of Lodges within the Province with 9 coming from the Humber Stone Lodge No. 7744 (the sponsoring Lodge) and nineteen other Lodges. The bond which the majority of the Founders had was that they were sportsmen the sports in question were Rugby Union Football (11 Members of Stoneygate F.C.), Golf and Cricket.

The Consecration took place in the Oliver Temple, London Road, Leicester on Tuesday 27th September 1988. The Ceremony was conducted by The Provincial Grand Master Right Worshipful Bro. Gayton C. Taylor, assisted by V. W. Bro. Thomas G. N. Stops, Deputy Provincial Grand Master and W. Bro. David S. Hurwood, Assistant Provincial Grand Master. The following Brethren also assisted, W. Bro. Leslie E. Hutchinson, Provincial Grand Secretary, W. Bro. Malcolm T. Whitmore, Provincial Grand Director of Ceremonies, and 8 other Provincial Grand Officers. There were 17 Past Provincial Grand Officers, 31 Petitioners, 4 Worshipful Masters from other Lodges, 6 Past Masters and 45 Brethren.

The Lodge being 28 years old does not carry a deal of history. Membership from the original 32 has now risen to 52. We have so far Initiated 40 candidates since the Lodge was consecrated and a staggering 32 Brethren have joined. This averages just under three members per year, which is a good record for a Lodge meeting initially only 4 times per year, now increased to 7 times. One Ceremony is the Annual Installation. Of the 32 Founders only 9 remain.

However the Lodge is strongly represented by having 5 Grand Officers including Founder W. Bro. Peter C. Kinder Assistant Provincial Grand Master appointed in November 2010, joining member R. W. Bro. Michael H. Roalfe Past Provincial Grand Master (2003 to 2010), Founder W. Bro. Christopher G. Packham was Provincial Grand Treasurer 2002 to 2011 and Founder W. Bro. Anthony J. Wood was Provincial Grand Secretary from 2010 to 2014. All this gives a great wealth of knowledge and experience at all levels to both new Brethren and the various Officers working their way through the Offices within the Lodge.
