Who We Are
Welcome to Soroptimist International Dunfermline
Soroptimist International of Dunfermline if one of 10 clubs in Scotland South Region. The club started in 1950 and is still going strong and looking forward to celebrating 70 years of service in 2020. Our clubs members are a friendly group of like minded women, drawn from all sectors of the community and who bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to our meetings and activities.
We meet twice a month on the second and fourth Thursday in the Carnegie conference centre in Dunfermline at usually at 7pm. On the last Thursday we often have a supper meeting when we meet at the conference centre for an informal meal.
Dunfermline is in the Kingdom of Fife and is the Ancient Capital Town of Scotland and home to many important and historic sites, including the burial place of King Robert the Bruce and the birthplace of Andrew Carnegie.
In days gone by Dunfermline was a leading light of the linen trade and now is home to a major Amazon depot and many electronic firms. Rosyth Dockyard remains a vibrant local employer as we continue to build warships. The latest Forth crossing ‘The Queensferry Crossing’ can be seen rising majestically from the estuary to the west of the Forth Rail Bridge and the Forth Bridge creating one more link to our current capital, Edinburgh.
