WE HAVE MOVED! New Venue ? Pebbles Cafe, The Haven Community Hub, 138 Hamlet Court Road, Westcliff-on-Sea, SS0 7LW.

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 Pebbles Cafe, The Haven Community Hub, 138 Hamlet Court Road, Westcliff-on-Sea, SS0 7LW.
