North Eastern Dordogne Women’s Association

The North Eastern Dordogne Women’s Association (NEDWA) began in September 2009 with 26 potential members meeting for lunch in Coly. We have grown rapidly and now have eight nationalities represented in almost 100 members, all young at heart whether 30 something or 80 something.

Membership increases as friends tell friends, reflecting the demand for a forum where women meet to exchange ideas and network on both a professional and social level. New members can always be sure of a warm welcome, good company and true friendship.

If you would like to join us or would like more information, please contact us at or have a look at the information on our Contacts page.
