Crosby Soroptimists Remember

Soroptimist lays poppy wreath at Alexandra Park Crosby war memorialPresident Chris Chua-Short laid a poppy wreath on behalf of all members of Soroptimist International, Crosby.

This year members decided to lay their wreath at the war memorial in Alexandra Park. Crosby’s Soroptimists refurbished the memorial in 2014, in partnership with the local Rotary International club. This was a joint project to commemorate both clubs’ 75 years of service.

The Soroptimists’ card read: “We shall never forget all your sacrifices – past and present.”

The usual Remembrance Sunday services were not held because of Covid-19 restrictions. Local organisations therefore visited and laid wreaths in their own time, observing social distancing. President Elect Chris Smith joined the club’s president at the memorial.
