Tea Party with the Mayor of Cheshire East

IMG_0567President of Soroptimist Nantwich was invited to a Tea Party with the Mayor of Cheshire East, Councillor Olivia Hunter.

The Mayor is hosting a series of Afternoon teas to which she is inviting volunteers who work within the community. Everyone had a lovely time taking tea in the Mayor’s Parlour in the beautiful Municipal Buildings in Crewe.

During the afternoon President Sue was able to share how our organisation works in the community and beyond. This was another chance to spread the word about Soroptimists, and also to network with other organisations with whom we may work in partnership in the future.
Madame Mayor was really interested in our organisation and asked pertinent questions. She was very interested in our Anti slavery event in Nantwich and said she would like to come and see us on the day, if she is free.

At the end she thanked us all for the work that we undertake within our communities and praised the work of all volunteers. Overall it was a lovely relaxed event but it felt like a very special treat to meet Madame mayor and take tea with her in her parlour.
