Welcome to the North West London Women’s Institute!

We are a group of women with wide ranging interests, who meet regularly for socialising and an interesting talk or activity.
At our monthly meeting we have talks from local community women and inclusive activities (such as dance or craft) centred around our members’ interests. We also hold a raffle with a mystery prize, which is kindly donated by one of our members every month. You never know what you might win!
