About our Club
The Inaugural Meeting of Soroptimist International of Crieff was held in December 1957 and the charter dinner on 15 March 1958, which means that we celebrated our 55th anniversary in 2013.
Today we have 26 members, and we meet on the first and third Thursday of each month, from September to June, at 7.30 pm in the Strathearn Community Campus. We also enjoy a number of purely social events throughout the year. All visitors are welcome and we would be delighted to talk to anyone who has an interest in our club.
SI Crieff is part of Soroptimist International of Great Britain and Ireland (SIGBI). The Clubs in the United Kingdom are grouped into regions, of which Scotland has two: Scotland North and Scotland South. Scotland North has 7 Clubs – Aberdeen, Crieff, Dundee, Easter Ross, Inverness & District, Perth, and St. Andrews & District.
Our federation, SIGBI, has clubs in the Caribbean, Africa, the Indian subcontinent, Mauritius and the Seychelles.
SI Crieff has Friendship Links with four Clubs:
- SI Rehovet in Israel – started because one of their members is from Scotland.
- SI Skipton in Craven in Yorkshire.
- SI Ramsbottom in South Lancashire.
- SI Rhyl and District in Wales.
