Think On It!

Our President for 2019/20 is Helen Piddock- Jones and she has chosen her theme for the year to be “Think On It”

SIGBI Federation President Sue Williams has a theme for this year entitled ‘Think on it’ which encourages Members to raise awareness of mental health.

She says “Good mental health is fundamental to thriving in life. It is the essence of who we are and how we experience the world. Yet, compared to physical health, so little is commonly known about mental ill health and how to prevent it. That must change”

Helen says: “I am taking her lead and devoting my whole year to all aspects of mental health. Now that may all sound a bit depressing but it isn’t because in each situation we are going to be looking at the positives. What can be done by experts and amateurs like us to make things better. We will also be looking for projects in which we can get involved.”

Sunday Lunch at The Clink, Styal: March 2019

A group of Soroptimists and friends had Sunday lunch at The Clink.  The food was delicious and all prepared from scratch.  The service also was excellent.  We had the concept of The Clink Restaurant explained to us and told of its success in helping to reduce reoffending.
It is certainly an outing to be repeated!
