Thames Mouth Lodge meets five times a year at Saxon Hall, Southend-on-Sea and are very pleased to be part of the new Masonic Temple. Our meetings are the same every year which are always on the 2nd Saturday in January, 1st Thursday in March, 4th Saturday in April, 4th Saturday in September and the 2nd Thursday in November.
We have the reputation of being a very hospitable Lodge with our members and many guests leaving fully satisfied following a splendid meeting in the Temple and an equally enjoyable time at our festive board afterwards.
Thames Mouth Lodge, until recently held their famous Cockney Night which is to be reinstated in April 2015, this usually hosting approximately 80+ guests along with our own Lodge members and again a very enjoyable meeting not to be missed.
Our November meeting which is named “Thames Mouth Armistice Meeting” is growing annually reaching 129 in 2013. This is a solemn tribute to all of our Armed Forces and Ancillary Services, especially the fallen, wounded and missing in action, during all of our wars and conflicts. Masons have commented that it is very close to the real tributes which are held nationwide and with our specially commissioned Cenotaph, many ex-servicemen shed a tear during the two minute silence. Uniforms past and present, service or civilian, along with Military Medals and poppies are always worn.
The social side to Thames Mouth Lodge is also very vibrant with a June Sunday Family Lunch which is hosted by our Worshipful Master and his charming Lady. This is an informal lunch where members and friends are encouraged to bring their children and grandchildren for a superb lunch in a happy environment.
Events in the past have included river trips on the Norfolk Broads, summer fetes, garden parties, in fact anything that is suggested for the enjoyment of our members and their guests, Thames Mouth Lodge will oblige.

THAMES MOUTH LODGE NO.6994
Thames Mouth Lodge was consecrated at the Masonic Hall, Woodgrange Drive, Southend-on-Sea on Saturday 9th September 1950. Our founder members were all good citizens of mixed trades, professions and occupations and all from the Southend area. The Lodge has gone from strength to strength and now has just over 40 members who act as custodians to keep the Lodge strong and grow well into the future. Thames Mouth Lodge was a founding member of the Freemasons Hall in Woodgrange Drive and after a considerable amount of years there, became a founding member of the new Southend Masonic Temple at Saxon Hall moving in 2006.
As with other masonic Lodges, over the years Thames Mouth has been very successful in raising a great deal of money to deserving charities. A small example is Southend Hospital University Trust, Royal Engineers Injured Soldiers Fund, and Help for Heroes, Royal British Legion and TLC which although started locally in our Lodge, has grown and grown giving a small teddy to children when they unfortunately have to visit A&E departments at hospitals
