About Us

Who we are

We are a social club of international women (and their families) living in Asturias. We share a common love of ‘el paraiso natural’, the culture and the heritage of Asturias. Some of us have lived in Asturias for many years (Spaniards and non-Spaniards), while others are new to the region. Many of us have children that are living in bilingual families. Some of us have local family, some of us don’t. But what we all have in common is an international aspect to our lives and, whatever our background, we all enjoy making new friends and sharing experiences through the IWCA.


In February 2015 we elected the first IWCA committee so that we could register as a official non-profit association. The committee and other members manage the club´s events, paperwork and  finances. Our thanks go to the following for giving their time voluntarily:

  • Anna-Liisa Hayward: President
  • Maria Fernandez Zorilla: Secretary
  • Ana Bobes: Treasurer
  • Paula Sampedro and Monica Logos: Information/Communications Officers

The monthly committee meetings are open to any members who would like to get involved or you can send us your ideas and suggestions by email.

Keep an eye out for lots of other events that we publicise on our ´news and events´ page or via facebook… and if you would like to organise an event please contact one of our committee members who will be happy to provide advice and help.


IWC Asturias welcomes women of all nationalities living in Asturias. All our communications, activities and events are in English so only applicants fluent in English are accepted as members – see our membership page for more details.
