Welcome to the WIGs website!
The WIGs are a growing Women's Institute based in Colchester, Essex. We’re out to celebrate what it
means to be a woman in the modern world – and that’s not being a WAG-wannabe. We’re the WIGs, the WI
Girls, and we’re here to bring back more traditional values and pastimes that
are often overlooked in today’s busy lifestyle.
We meet on the first Wednesday of every month at 7:30pm-9:30pm at the
Wilson Marriage Centre, Barrack Street, Colchester, so come along and join the fun!
Everyone is welcome, from 18 years to 118 years. We pride ourselves on being
an all-encompassing group of women who are driven by a common interest - a
desire to learn new things, discover new interests and share our experiences
with like-minded people. It’s about being ourselves, while learning and growing
from our adventures together.
Next meeting: 3 June
2015 - Bollywood Dancing
