There isn’t a typical member of Westcliff-on-Sea Women’s Institute (affectionately known as WoSWI). We come from all walks of life, from hoteliers, decorators and teachers to full-time mums and those who have retired. What we do have in common is a dedication to having fun, enjoying the company of interesting and inspirational women, broadening our horizons and occasionally indulging in the odd tipple.

Our interests cover a wide range of activities from crafts, culture, education, sport and social. Members are encouraged to form sub-groups to pursue these interests.

We meet on the second Thursday of the month (except August) 8pm – 10pm (doors open from 7.30pm) at the Royal Naval Club, 73-79 East Street, Southend-on-Sea, SS2 6LQ (please note – meetings are currently being held on Zoom until we are able to return to the Naval Club).

There is parking at the back of the club and in surrounding streets or in the Providence Baptist Church car park.
