Royal Invitation

Soroptimists, Soroptimists where have you been? We’ve been to London to see the Queen.

Two Soroptimists from South Lancashire Region were privileged to receive an invitation to a garden party at Buckingham Palace.

Clare Baxter and Jane Daly are trustees of Crosby Hall Educational Trust (CHET) in Little Crosby. Coincidentally their Soroptimist club (SI Crosby) has longstanding links with CHET. The duo was invited along with other two trustees, and joined the hundreds of guests on this special day.

Reminiscing they said, “We were fortunate to see many members of the Royal family and look around the beautiful palace gardens in glorious sunshine.

“We enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea while listening to the music of two military bands. It truly was a quintessentially English occasion.”
