Forthcoming Meetings


SI Surrey Hills is a small club based in Godalming.  In general we meet from 7.45 pm on the 1st Monday of every month with an optional two course supper in Queen Street around 6.30 pm or so.  Meetings in August and December are flexible and often purely social. We meet in the heart of Godalming at the Baptist Church hall in Queen Street, Godalming, Surrey, GU7 1BA.  There is a carpark just behind the hall.  

We also hold an informal get together on the 2nd Friday of each month at the Inn on the Lake in Godalming.  6.30 onwards if you feel like eating and from 7.30 pm if you don’t!  We are usually finished around 9 pm.

We would love to be a bigger club with the opportunity to work on even more projects so please do think about visiting us if you are at all interested in Soroptimism or anything you have seen on this website.  Visitors are welcome to all our meetings.
