November 2023

Milford Haven Soroptimists have created a mural of hand-made flowers, with help from Soroptimists in St Austell in Cornwall, their frienship link club. The mural is composed of over 600 orange flowers. It is currently hanging up in the Torch Theatre where a Charity Film event is being held on 26th November. Orange is the colour adopted by the United Nations in their campaign to Eliminate Violence Against Women. The 25th November has been designated as a special day each year by the UN.

Spanning the Cleddau Bridge for International Women’s Day March 2018

Soroptimists, friends of Pembrokeshire Women’s Festival and the SGI Buddhist group met on the Cleddau Bridge to celebrate International Women’s Day. It was cold, wet and windy but that didn’t stop over 100 women holding hands walking along the bridge to the accompanying sounds of Samba Doc drumming band.

Started by the Suffragettes, the first International Women’s Day was celebrated in 1911 and despite all that has been achieved by women since then there is still a need to  ‘Press for Progress’ for lasting improvement in the lives of women and girls throughout the world.


The World Economic Forum’s 2017 report tells us that gender parity is over 200 year away! so it’s ever more important to keep motivated and support global activism for women’s equality. This is a movement which chimes with our Soroptimist aim to inspire action and create opportunities for women to reach their full potential and take an active part in the development of their communities.

Gardening group

We’ve started a gardening group, helping our community to keep the weeds at bay and tidying up the public spaces. We began with the terrace at the Torch Theatre where many of our members already volunteer for front of house duties.

We are very pleased to support Shalom House, one of Presidents Sheila and Trisha’s chosen charity this year. We planted annuals in the summer to cheer up the view from the lounge window and returned this autumn to plant bulbs which hopefully will make a good show next spring.

Girl Power

Milford Haven Brownies are planning a weekend of activities and Soroptimists are delighted to be able to contribute to the experience. We all remember how much can be gained by working together and having lots of fun along the way.

International Women’s Day…..walk

After joining other organisations spanning the Cleddau Bridge to mark International Women’s Day some of us extended the walk around Westfield Pill Nature Reserve. thank you to everyone who supported the event.


March 11th 2017

National Wear Red Day.

A few members gathered for a photoshoot to be sent to the campaign raising awareness of heart disease as a killer of women in many countries. We chose the Torch, our local theatre, as the venue because several of us are Front of House Volunteers there, also we have contributed toward the cost of installing a defibrillator at the Torch.
