Love Parks Week – 12-18 July 2020

Love Parks Week, 12-18 July 2020

This is a great time to visit your local park, but not forgetting the social distancing that is so important now.  Woking Park is close to the centre and easy to pop into before or after shopping.  It’s nice to take a turn after visiting the swimming pool or the Leisure Centre.

Soroptimist Bench

When you go, look out for the Soroptimist Bench.  We gave the bench to Woking Park to celebrate our Pearl Anniversary in 2006.  It’s in a peaceful spot overlooking the open space of the lawn – really good for a quiet moment of meditation before you go back to work.  Really good for one’s mental health.

Our photo shows Jackie Theobald, Rozanne Rose and Anne Ansell in Woking Park.  It was taken during the presentation ceremony.

Trees please!

Soroptimists celebrate centenary

We must never forget how important trees are for our well-being.

Our national federation, SIGBI, has launched a new campaign.  We will celebrate the 100th anniversary of Soroptimist International in 2021 and Soroptimists across the country will be planting trees.

Woking Soroptimists have already planted a tree in Woking.  When Woking Centre was redeveloped some years ago, we got together with Woking Lions and sponsored a tree.  You can see it now near the Woking Square  in Jubilee Square.  We are so pleased to see it flourishing and growing tall.
