On Saturday 9th June, we hosted London Chilterns’ Regional Meeting, and we were delighted to welcome President Yinka Soetan and fellow Soroptimists to Wodson Park in Ware. After the Open Council Meeting and other Soroptimist Business in the morning, we sat down to a good lunch and a chat before embarking on the afternoon session. It was entitled “Leadership thro’ Sport” and Jenny Evans from Sports Leaders UK gave a brief history and outline of the organisation before handing over to two award holders, Sarah Miller and Rochelle Alexandra, who gave inspirational presentations, showing how their lives had been transformed. Both had become confident, self-reliant young women, able to transfer the skills acquired through sports leadership to other aspects of their life. Rochelle described herself as “an ordinary person with an extraordinary start in life”.
To complete the day, Rochelle succeeded in getting us all on our feet to learn some basic dance steps before giving us a demonstration of break dancing – which we did not attempt!
