About where we are
Wallasey is located on the north east corner of the Wirral peninsula, bordered by the Irish Sea and the Mersey River estuary. The most well known area of Wallasey is New Brighton. Once a thriving seaside resort, the decline of the late 20th century is now being reversed with a newly re-built theatre, The Floral Pavillion, coffee shops, cinema and places to dine out. With efficient trains, buses, the Mersey ferry, Kingsway tunnel to Liverpool and motorway network; Wallasey readily links with the rest of Wirral, Liverpool and the UK.
Our members come from different parts of the Wirral, not just Wallasey, indicating how much they value the Club. Although a small Club we are very friendly and productive. We enjoy social gatherings and outings, often with other clubs. Our meetings are twice a month, currently at the Hollins Hey Hotel New Brighton normally on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month (please contact us for the up-to-date venue). Plus members of the Club’s Craft Group meet regularly at a member’s home (see Fun, Fundraising and Friendship page for further details).
We welcome both visitors and prospective members at our meetings and other social events. For further information or to visit us please use our ‘contact us’ facility.

Although we are a small club our local, national and international activities are diverse. Club members engage in activities that they find of interest and that they find they can manage in busy lives. Scroll through our other pages to see some of the things we are involved in – some fun, some service/voluntary work, some fundraising – hopefully helping others in many ways.
New members are always welcome. If you are interested but not sure being a Soroptimist is for you, why not come along to one of our meetings or social evenings? Please contact us via our ‘contact us’ page to arrange a visit – with no obligation. New members are supported and guided by a named mentor who is an experienced Club member thus helping with settling in and learning about Soroptimisits.
