About our Club
Welcome to Newbury & District branch of Soroptimist International. Our Meeting Venue is the annexe at St George’s Church, Wash Common, Newbury. Following speaker meetings, a short business meeting will be held.
Newbury and District was chartered in June 1956. At present we have 22 members from a variety of professions and voluntary and other organisations. We are active in the community and enjoy meeting together for fellowship and fun.
We meet on the 1st & 3rd Thursday of the month, except August, at St. George’s Annexe, Wash Common, Newbury, RG14 6NU at 7.30pm. Usually we start with coffee and biscuits followed by a speaker or business meeting, the evening ends about 9.45pm. During August we organise a summer lunch at the home of one of our members to which we also invite our partners.
Each year our president nominates a charity for which we raise funds by organising various events. This year it will be the West Berkshire Community Hospital Renal Unit and The Crohn’s and Colitis UK Charity.
One of our biggest fundraising events is the annual pancake race held in Newbury Market Place on Shrove Tuesday.
