Joining Goldhanger, Little Totham and Tolleshunt Major W.I. is a great way to meet friends – old and new – and get involved in new activities or just enjoy a chat over tea and cake to catch up on all the news and gossip!
Our W.I. offers the opportunity to spend time with like-minded women from the local community but is also about giving something back and promoting a better way of life.
New ladies are welcome to pop along on the night or you can contact the committee in advance to meet up with a committee member beforehand so you will know someone when you arrive – we all remember how daunting that can be!!
Goldhanger, Little Totham and Tolleshunt Major W.I. was created on June 1st 1933 and originally consisted purely of Goldhanger village. Little Totham joined in 1934 and Tolleshunt Major in 1949. We are part of the Federation of Essex Women’s Institutes (registered charity number 1014445) which is governed by the National Federation of Women’s Institutes and now have over 50 members participating in a wide range of events.
The W.I. offers fun and friendship for women of ALL ages! So why not come along and give us a whirl….you may be surprised!
