#IWD2020
Mayor of Bournemouth & members celebrating #IWD2020

We meet monthly at West Hants Tennis Club, Roslin Road, Bournemouth where the food is excellent and the room has great facilities for any guest speakers. In July, we like to meet at the Branksome Dene Community Rooms right next to the sea for a social with previous members.

All our meetings start with a meal and a chance for members to socialise and unwind from their day. There is the chance for members to meet in the bar beforehand for a drink and we try to make sure we sit with different people each month.

Although primarily a “business” meeting, by having a meal, inviting interesting speakers and having some meetings that are just social, we aim to include something for everyone . Visitors from other Soroptimist Clubs, organisations and the community often join us.  Meetings are where we not only enjoy a get together, but also hear what else is going on in the world of Soroptimism.  As an international organisation we receive invites to other Club events, Regional Meetings and arrangements for the SIGBI Annual Conference are dealt with but we also use email for communication and much day to day business . We also use social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and Instagram.

Like all Clubs we have developed traditions over the years but welcome new members with fresh ideas and look forward to ensuring that their membership is a positive and warm experience.

Guests are welcome to attend most meetings, but we would need to know in advance in order that we can confirm numbers for the meals.

If you are interested in what we do and would like to come along, just to see if you like us, or out of sheer curiosity, please contact us via our e-mail address sigbibournemouth@hotmail.co.uk or use the Contact Us section on this website.
