We welcomed a special visitor to our Business Meeting last night, Wales South Regional President Rhian Williams joined us. We had a lively discussion about the regional project – Alcohol and Young Women – and how we felt we wanted to proceed with our support at local club level. One of our members is an experienced Street Pastor, directly dealing with young women, and men, in the early hours of the morning following a night of binge drinking and she was able to share with us the reality of the issue.
Rhian then addressed our group and shared her thoughts about the year ahead; it’s always very motivating to listen to someone who is passionate about Soroptimists and the difference that we can make, from a local level right up to the global network. She was very positive about our club and encouraged members to attend regional meetings wherever possible.
We look forward to working with and supporting Rhian over this year of her Presidency.
