Llangollen International Eisteddfod, July 2019
Once again Heswall members went to the Eisteddfod and were part of the Soroptimist team at the SI hospitality tent. This year the Region sponsored a choir from Warsaw in Poland – Alla Polacca. The choir members enjoyed taking part and their stay in Llangollen. Congratulations to them on third place in the folk song competition.
Toilet Twinning Launch, June 2019
In the Club’s 70th year Presidents Sue and Glenys are planning to make Heswall a toilet-twinned town with fundraising events and local initiatives involving local businesses and organisations. This project was launched at Heswall library with the deputy Mayor of Wirral and his wife, Club members and members of the public. President Sue and some of SI Heswall members had promoted this event by walking around the town centre with President Sue’s ‘toilet on a trolly’ to alert the public. It was well received! Sarah from Toilet Twinning (toilettwinning.org) outlined the work of the charity and wished the Club every success in it its aim of fundraising for 70 toilets in our 70th year.
