Northwood Area Women's Club

Bringing Women Together in Friendship for over 50 Years

Who We Are

Northwood Area Women's Club (NAWC) is a social club that brings together women living in and around the Northwood area. We are a non-profit organisation for women of all ages and nationalities, including those living in the UK temporarily. We offer a stimulating programme of social and cultural activities, many of which are designed to give our international members a better understanding of British life and culture. Our goals are to promote friendship among women, assist members in making their residence in England a meaningful experience and to contribute to our community.

Our monthly meetings feature guest speakers on a variety of topics. We also organize tours, social events and cultural activities, and we fundraise for a local charity selected by the members each year.

What members have to say ...

When I first arrived in London, I was lost. I wanted to make friends with other ladies in the area and I also wanted to visit the many places London had to offer. But not knowing anyone, I struggled on how to even begin. Since discovering NAWC, I have built confidence in developing friendships with other ladies nearby, and I have enjoyed learning how to play Mah Jong in a relaxed, non competitive circle of lovely ladies. They welcomed me right away and that was so important when making new friends. I enjoy the Club so much and the opportunities for outings in London, discovering new restaurants and even sharing a love for crafts and books, are just a few of the reasons this group is so valuable! So glad I found it!
