The Alexandra is the Women’s Institute for the women of Muswell Hill and Crouch End. Established in 2010, we are part of the Middlesex Federation, and the North-East London Group of WIs, which means we have a loose alliance with Clay Hill, Field Dames, Harringay & Tottenham, N1 and Stroud Green WIs and share an annual Group Meeting with them.
Most of our members live in Muswell Hill and Crouch End, but a few come from slightly further afield: everyone is welcome!
Our members are a vibrant mix of women from all walks of life. They range in age from their 20s through to their 70s and bring to our group a wealth of life stories and experiences. We are brought together by a shared passion for our wonderful corner of North London and our community.
To give women in our community an opportunity to make friends, gain knowledge and develop new skills in a friendly, open atmosphere.
