Visit to Baden Baden

In July 2018, Membership Officer, Corinne, was invited to visit Soroptimist friends in Baden Baden (in S.W. Germany – a magnificent Spa Town on the edge of the Black Forest). We had met the sisters from SI Baden Baden via our friendship link with SI Waterland.

Also members from SI Baden Baden and SI Murgtal (the neighbouring club) came to SI King’s Lynn for the Hanse Weekend in 2017.

Corinne had a great time, and enjoyed such wonderful hospitality from the Soroptimists there….. shall we have a link with Baden Baden? Lets hope so in the future!

Visit to Bratislava

Club member Sue was delighted to meet members from the Soroptimist International Club Bratislava Slovakia whilst visiting a Christmas Market.

Being a member of Soroptimist International is a great way to meet new people and make friends throughout the world.


Friendship Link Visit


At our September 2017 meeting we were delighted to welcome Usha Devi Rathore from our Friendship Link club SI Pune.

Usha had recently returned from a yoga centre in Gloucestershire where she had been teaching a group of under-privileged girls from Pune.

During the meeting Usha gave us an illuminating talk on the practise of yoga and women’s empowerment. She explained how balancing the chakras (the seven centres of spiritual power in the human body) allows the spiritual energy to flow – a ‘keep fit’ programme for the mind, body and spirit. The club members were very interested and have asked about the possibility of Usha returning to deliver a yoga workshop next year.

Usha stayed on to sample the delights of the North Norfolk beaches and dinner with some club members the following evening.
