LIME & Cheshire Show Committee


The  Royal Cheshire Show Committee has not met since the last Region Meeting and will shortly be  meeting to finalise arrangements for the Royal Cheshire Show 2018. This year it will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday 19thand 20thJune 2018.

The theme this year will be Purple Teardrop Campaign. We will be collecting signatures and encouraging members of the public to write a message and pin it on a tree which we have purchased.

Soroptimist presence at the show is, and always has been, to raise awareness to increase membership of Soroptimist International, and also  to highlight some of the Campaigns we have taken up  such as Breast Cancer, Domestic Violence and Toilet Twinning etc.

The Christmas Lunch this year will be a combined event with the Change of Insignia  and will be held  on Saturday 17thNovember 2018 at The Holiday Inn, Ellesmere Port.   There will be the usual opportunity for Christmas shopping followed by lunch;   in the afternoon, the Change of Insignia will take place.   This is always a very pleasant event and President Hilary asks that  you  put the date in your diary!

LIME Committee June 2018 Report

At our last meeting it was agreed by the committee to sponsor a choir from South Africa. Contact has been made with the Llangollen International Eisteddfod Committee to inform them of our Soroptimist Region’s sponsorship and the group have been notified. We are holding an Afternoon Tea/Fashion Show at Eaton Park on 16th May, with proceeds of this event going to the International President’s charity, Women, Water and Education and of course sponsorship funds for our Eisteddfod choir.
Following my return in May, the committee will be holding a meeting to discuss preparations for the Llangollen Eisteddfod and requests for helpers during the week will be sent out. Once again we hope to have a pre-loved stall at the Eisteddfod selling Scarves, handbags and jewellery.
We would be delighted if any clubs in the region who have any donations could bring them to our Regional meeting in June. Thanks in advance.
