Celebratory Tea Party at Merchants Hall 12th September 2021: 100 Years of Sisterhood

On the 12th September 2021 we celebrated 100 years of Sisterhood.  Due to the Covid restrictions it was delayed by a year.  More than 60 guests arrived at Merchants Hall for an amazing afternoon tea.  The guests included Peaches Golding Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of the County and City of Bristol also an honorary member of SI Bristol.  Other guests, included President John Hirst, from our co-founders, the Rotary Club of Bristol and Sue Murphy Chair of the Avon WI Federation.  Of course there were guests from Soroptimist Clubs of Bath, Cheltenham, Cirencester, St Austell, and Weston-super-Mare.  Our Regional President Elect, Jackie Collins, from Yeovil was there too, along with many members, current and former of our Bristol Club together with some partners.

Maureen organised the day along with Pauline C who made an amazing celebratory cake which was cut by our longest serving member Anne who has been a member of SI Bristol for over 50 years.

We had a wonderful afternoon full of happy memories and happy times ahead as we look forward to another 100 years of service.
