Sutton Court Lodge meets four times a year in the fabulous Twickenham District Masonic Centre, in Middlesex. There are three main meeting rooms and several smaller rooms where committee and instruction meetings can be scheduled, and dining rooms where we enjoy our ‘festive board’ after our meetings. As many of our members drive to attend our meetings, Sutton Court Lodge has taken the responsible decision not to include wine at the festive board, leaving it to the discretion of individual members whether they choose to drink or not. The centre has ample secure (free) car parking, a large lawn for outside events and is often used to host Rugby functions from the nearby Twickenham stadium. During the war the centre was used as a dancehall for the American Soldiers from the Bushy Park Garrison, and when they left as there was no use for a hotel in the Twickenham area at the time, the building was left to deteriorate. In September 1950, the Twickenham District Masonic Council Ltd. was registered and formed under the Chairmanship of the late W. Brother V.G. Heptinstall and the premises were brought. The 32 original Lodges and Chapters and the hard work of many Masons has made Cole Court the premier Masonic Centre in Middlesex.
Sutton Court Lodge meets on the fourth Friday of January, March, June (Installation) and September at 5.00pm in the afternoon. We have many members who live outside the county of Middlesex and most come to our meetings, commuting often some 300 miles, so we try to be sufficiently flexible that our festive board concludes at about 9.00pm, allowing those who are driving to be home at a reasonable hour... but for those who are local and using public transport, the bar is open until later.
