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, Ladies of the Lock, 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.
