Club Diary

Here is our Club Diary. You will see a mix of club meetings, social events and activities for action (Programme action). Some diary items are for members only but many are ‘open events’ where we welcome friends, family and anyone interested in our organisation. Once an event has taken place it is marked as ‘COMPLETED’. We really do offer something for everyone across our ‘soroptimist year’.

Programme Action. Promoting STEM at Youth Armed Forces Day
Programme Action. Collecting good for a local charity.
Programme Action. A special event at Sticker Memory Cafe
A social event. Boat trip up the River Fowey.
