About our Club



Soroptimist International of Ellesmere Port & District was founded in 1943 and is one of eighteen clubs in the Soroptimist Region of Cheshire, North Wales & Wirral.

We meet on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm at:

The Holiday Inn, Lower Mersey Street, Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, CH65 2AL

On the first Thursday we hold a business meeting and on the 3rd Thursday the members enjoy a meal together followed by a speaker on a subject which may be connected with our programme work, or of more general interest.


As well as our regular meetings we hold some additional meetings and functions connected with our projects and charity interests and social events such as our charter lunch and Christmas party. (See Diary of Events)

We currently have 22 members, who come mainly from in and around Ellesmere Port, although some are from Chester and the borders of North Wales.

Our Club has friendship links with overseas clubs:

SI Portadown – Northern Ireland

SI Columbo – Sri Lanka

SI Maseno – Kenya

SI Moreton North – Australia
