Cruising down the River Dee
On Saturday, 11th June, a group of 40 Soroptimists from clubs in Cheshire, North Wales & Wirral enjoyed a social outing on the Lady Diana, meandering along the River Dee in Chester.
Members, dressed in red, white and blue or resplendent as Royalty, spent a relaxing three hours whilst indulging in afternoon tea and appreciating the lovely scenery, as the boat sailed down to the Iron Bridge at Eccleston.
Entertainment consisted of a royal quiz which was won by Cherry Povall, a raffle and prizes for the best royals: Louise Parry and Pam Cheesley Hollinshead.
The crew looked after us admirably and provided endless cups of tea, a well stocked bar and a varied, delicious buffet. Although we missed the morning regatta, there were still many boats and canoes on the river. A commentary kept us informed of places of interest.
Sadly, President Yvonne, whose idea it had been, could not be with us due to ill-health, and she was greatly missed.
No one fell overboard and many said that they had thoroughly enjoyed the relaxing day.
