The Lord Lieutenant of Merseyside, Mark Blundell was principal guest.

During the anxious days approaching the Second World War, a small group of women gathered in May 1938, to form Soroptimist International of Crosby.

Since then, the club has worked to enhance the lives of women and girls not only locally but all over the world. Members have also given considerable voluntary support to the local community and its charities.

This contribution was acknowledged by principal guest, the Lord Lieutenant of Merseyside, Mark Blundell, at the club’s 80th anniversary dinner, held at West Lancashire Golf Club. In particular, he thanked members for their support for Crosby Hall Educational Trust, a charity he chairs, which allows children to experience outdoor activity breaks at Crosby Hall.

The event was also special for Crosby SI president, Sheila Chatterton, who celebrated her 80th birthday.
