L.I.M.E. Report to Region Meeting June 2019
Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod 2-7thJuly 2019
Once again we are preparing for the busy week at the Eisteddfod. Our plans are going ahead well and with your support we hope it will be another successful year for Soroptimist International at Llangollen.
Sheena has sent out the Rota form and we would be delighted if you could help. Sadly Sheena’s term of office comes to an end and we will be looking for another volunteer to join this hardworking little group after the AGM. Application forms are available from Louise.
The Marquee has been booked and plans are going ahead for the presentations of some interesting projects from the clubs. On Tuesday 2ndJuly which is children’s day, we will have a display on Bee Keeping and will welcome a bee keeper dressed in his protective outfit to demonstrate to children and others the work taken by clubs. Many thanks to SI Rhyl & District, SI Denbigh & Ruthin and also SI Llandudno who are all very active in promoting this project with their work in schools and the community. A member of their group will be present daily to explain to the general public of the work they do.
We are always looking for ways to help with the funding of our work at Llangollen and once again we ask you to donate preloved handbags, scarves and jewellery for us to sell at the Eisteddfod. Please bring them along to the June Regional Meeting.
This year we are supporting a choir from Poland. We look forward to meeting them and listening to them as they compete in the Eisteddfod. Good luck to them.
There are many members in the Region who have never visited the Eisteddfod. I urge all of you to come along and see what a joyful place it is. Everyone is so happy. The choirs and dancers have worked hard and deserve our support. It’s good to see a smile on people’s faces.
Many thanks for your support.
Chair of LIME committee.
After 7 years of raising awareness about Soroptimist International – who we are and the projects we get involved in – and attracting new members, this will be our last presence at the Royal Cheshire Show. It was never intended that this event would continue in perpetuity.
Over the years we have raised awareness about Breast Cancer, Toilet Twinning, Mary’s Meals, Domestic Violence and the Purple Tear Drop Campaign. Our theme this year is ‘Period Poverty’ and we shall be running a petition to abolish VAT on sanitary products.
We always welcome any volunteers over the 2 Show days, which this year are Tuesday and Wednesday 18THand 19THJune, and can provide free entry tickets.
The committee wish to thank all members of our Region who have volunteered to help in any way over the past 7 years.
