Scottish Womens Institute Logo

Scottish Women's Institutes has a rich history across Scotland’s communities, promoting education and connecting women locally and nationally to improve their quality of life through friendship, education, sharing and having fun.

The Newmill & Teviothead SWI meets at 7pm on the first Tuesday of the month at Teviothead Hall.  We are a friendly, cheery group of likeminded "girls".  Young at heart and full of enthusiasm our members are from the Teviot Valley and Hawick.

Whether it is crafts, drama, sport or just socialising the list is endless. So, if you want some "me time", come along and join us.
