IPSWICH AND DISTRICT club was established over 60 years ago and our meetings take place on the 2nd Wednesday of each month in the historic surroundings of the Ipswich and Suffolk Club in Northgate Street, Ipswich.

Originally the Archdeacon’s House, we are delighted to be able to use this listed building which provides us with safe, ample parking and good facilities for our monthly meetings.

As a forward thinking club, it is our aim to develop a club where members contribute their skills and talents and work together to meet the objects of Soroptimism in an effective and relevant way for women today. At the heart of what we do is a strong commitment towards Programme Action projects, raising our profile within the community and the Region as well as attracting new members to our vibrant club.

Where you will find our club slightly different to some is that we decided as a group, to work closely as a team and share responsibilities and ideas. We are all too aware that commitments on our time as busy women today means that sharing some of the key roles within the club makes things a little bit more manageable and enjoyable.

A strong club with a established history, we know that having fun is an essential element of enjoying our membership, whether through interesting meetings, working together on Programme Action projects or outside activities.

There are many reasons why our members are Soroptimists If you are interested in finding out more or would like to come along to a meeting to see what it is like, contact us and we will be delighted to welcome you.  Email Pat at pat_roy16@hotmail.com or Jackie at jacalan@btopenworld.com.
