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.

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