The Committee

Brigitte, President

A wife, mum, nana, teaching assistant and would be owner of a tea shop, preferably by the sea and most definitely in Cornwall.


Would love to be taller, skinnier and be able to type with more than one finger.  I cannot ride a bike, knit or take up trousers, but I can make very good focaccia.  I have a blog which I love writing posts for but am rubbish at any of the techy bits. I'm currently writing my first novel.

Likes: Baking, Cornwall Italy and my WI


Dislikes: Trying to thread needles, bar stools and driving on slip roads, big roundabouts and parallel parking

Sue, Secretary

My name is Sue Dinsey and I’m a Swindonian born and bred. I live in West Swindon with my husband and some tropical fish  - one day we will get a dog, but not till we’ve retired!

 I have three grown up children who have all left home and I’m thoroughly enjoying the smaller food bills and lack of laundry.

  I love to travel and visit new places and when I’m at home I’m usually in the garden or the greenhouse, growing lots of flowers, fruit and vegetables.


Corinna, Treasurer

My name is Corinna Mazzotta and I’m a founder member of North Swindon WI.

In my working life I’ve been a qualified accountant, qualified massage therapist and an aromatherapist. I have also done lots of voluntary work and I currently co-lead our church small group as well as being treasurer for our WI (for the second time). I am also a member of the Wiltshire Federation Public Affairs committee.

I’m married, mum to two young men (a golfer and an aspiring musical theatre actor) and I love baking, crafting, singing, photography – although you’ll rarely see me in the pictures as I’d much rather be behind the camera, and walking in nature.

Emma, MCS Representive

Hi I'm Emma!
I'm a personal injury solicitor working in Bristol but I've been living in Swindon for the past 6 years.
I joined our WI in 2016  with the aim of meeting like-minded ladies and hopefully meeting some new friends. I also wanted to feel more connected to our local area and local community, and challenge myself to try new things including crafts and push myself out of my comfort zone. Through the WI I've certainly done that and made some fantastic friends along the way! 

Likes: running, rock n roll bingo, crime novels, a glass of chilled wine on a summer's evening

Dislikes: peanut butter, marmite and spiders!

Natasha, social media guru

Sarah, Minutes and programme secretary.

Hilary, campaigns and newsletter editor-in-chief
