About us. Who we are, what we do and why

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 are 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. 
Each year we vote on a local charity to support, based on members' suggestions. This year (and until April 2017) we're supporting the local Southend Hospital Dementia Appeal. In the last three years we have raised over £5000 for local good causes, including Peaceful Place, The Dove Project and Havens Hospices. 
Our interests cover a wide range of activities from crafts, culture, education, sports and social. Members are encouraged to form sub-groups to pursue these interests with like-minded ladies.

Westcliff-on-Sea Womens' Institute meets monthly from 8 to 10 pm. Our last meeting at The Arlington Rooms will be in January, 2018.

From February 2018 we will be meeting at the Royal Naval Club at 73-79 East St, Southend-on-Sea SS2 6LQ
