SI Bournemouth members 'trucking'

 

DUE TO COVID-19 OUR MEETINGS WILL BE HELD VIA ZOOM WHERE OUR MEMBERS AND VISITORS WILL BE MOST WELCOME. PLEASE CONTACT US VIA email: sigbibournemouth@hotmail.co.uk

We meet monthly at West Hants Tennis Club, Roslin Road, Bournemouth where the food is excellent and the  room has a screen and microphone for use by speakers. In July, we often meet at the Branksome Dene Community Rooms right next to the sea. The evening usually starts with a meal and a chance for members to socialise and unwind from their day. Some members meet in the bar beforehand for a drink. We try  to make sure we sit with different people each month.

There is a lot of laughter and fun and a real “Buzzy”atmosphere. Visitors from other Soroptimist Clubs, organisations and the community often join us. As Bournemouth has many language schools and colleges we welcome members from all over the world who attend courses here. Once everyone is suitably refreshed, we  continue with the business meeting which we aim to streamline There may also be a speaker. Meetings are where we not only enjoy a get together, but also hear what else is going on in the world of Soroptimism. Invites to other Club events, Regional Meetings and arrangements for our Annual Conference are dealt with but we also use email for communication and much day to day business.This helps keep admin to a minimum. We also keep members and the global community informed using 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 interested in coming 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.
