From China to Wales, via Pancakes

Crosby’s Soroptimists have been ‘Zooming’ to keep up their social contacts within the club.

A morning celebrating pancakes, Valentine’s Day and Chinese New Year was a novel idea but worked very well. There was a lot to talk about.

President Chris Chua-Short explained a little, too, about the Chinese Zodiac. 2021 is the year of the Ox. In Chinese culture, the Ox is a valued animal. Because of its role in agriculture, positive characteristics, such as being hardworking, are attributed to it. Excellent Soroptimist assets, too!

March 1st – St David’s Day – gave another excuse for a virtual get-together. Favourite places in Wales, a themed quiz and famous Welsh personalities kept everyone entertained.

Organised by Margaret Davidson and her Social team, these Zoom calls are a way of keeping club members in touch during lockdown. “A chat and an exchange of news over coffee can lift the spirits”, she said.

“There are a few more events in the pipeline. They’ll keep us going until we’re – eventually – able to meet up for a ‘real’ cuppa.”
