It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our website. This is a major leap forward for Fortitude Lodge No. 6503 as we burst forth into the 21st Century and onto the World Wide Web, I’m sure that the founding members 66 years ago did not - indeed could not - foresee the events that would lead to the emergence of a worldwide information communication channel; and its embrace by Freemasonry in general and Fortitude Lodge in particular.

The Lodge of Instruction is an integral part of being a member of our Lodge and it takes place between 7.45 and 10pm on the Friday evenings before each of our regular meetings, in order to maintain the high standards by which we perform our ceremonies and of which we are very proud.


We usually meet at the Harrow District Masonic Centre on the Fourth Saturday in October, January and March; and the Second Saturday in May.  This year (2016) we have moved our usual March meeting to April due to a clash with Easter.

Each year the Master of Fortitude Lodge for that year chooses one Masonic and one non-Masonic charity to particularly support as a Lodge.  This year our chosen charities are the Middlesex 2020 festival supporting the Masonic Trust for Girls & Boys and WaterAid.

We hope our site encourages you to learn more about Freemasonry and perhaps consider joining our Lodge - We are always looking for a few good men. Feel free to share any comments or questions that might be on your mind through our online guest book.

“Freemasonry attracts those with a sense of social responsibility: it encourages its members to be good members of society and to lead by example.


Freemasonry instils in its members a moral and ethical approach to life: it seeks to reinforce thoughtfulness for others, kindness in the community, honesty in business, courtesy in society and fairness in all things.


Members are urged to regard the interests of the family as paramount but, importantly, Freemasonry also teaches and practices concern for people, care for the less fortunate and help for those in need.”


When I became a member of Fortitude, this is what I found, and I hope you will too.
