Soroptimists ‘Travel’ to Sweden

Crosby’s Soroptimists have ‘been’ to Sweden for a meet-up with their Scandinavian friendship link sisters.

SI Falkenberg invited members from Crosby to join them via Zoom for the first part of their club meeting – to be held in English.

Anita Westerström opened the meeting in the traditional way. She lit four candles, symbolising Soroptimist International, the two Federations represented (Europe and Great Britain/Ireland), the Swedish Union, and the clubs present.

Chris Smith talked about some of SI Crosby’s achievements during the pandemic, and the way in which the club has kept everyone in touch. Terry Francis outlined the club’s ongoing involvement with Lunt Meadows Nature Reserve.

‘Breakout rooms’ then enabled small groups to chat and compare experiences during these challenging times.

Cynthia Ashworth, SI Crosby’s Friendship Co-ordinator, said: “This was a delightful opportunity to join our Scandinavian sisters.

“We had been looking forward to meeting in person last year. Let’s hope it won’t be too long before we can visit Scandinavia once again.”
