Garstang Soroptimists’ 40th Charter Anniversary

The Garstang Club has celebrated its 40th Charter Anniversary - taking a break with tradition away from the formal dinner, members. guests and friends enjoyed a sumptuous afternoon tea at the Crofters Hotel complete with celebration cake and all the trimmings! Our members cover a wide range of expertise, ages and years of service, from newer members of only a few months or years, to those who have given many years of service to the local community through our club.

Ruby Charter here at last

We haven’t got a clue

Let’s raise a small committee

To work out what to do

Will we make it formal?

Shall we be discrete?

Let’s go break tradition

And have a Sunday tea

The plans are set, the Crofters ready

The tables finely dressed

And in they come from all around

Our guests all dressed in red

We stand and chat and drink our Pimms

And wait for our delights

Then head off to the tables

To plates of dainty bites

Following our puddings

A lady of some importance

Our Hazel took the floor

To chart our Clubs ascendance

Then much to our amazement

It really was a quest

A cake of great proportions

Well Derek you’re the best

And finally champagne glasses

Were raised with great aplomb

Congratulations roundly given

Happy ladies all went home!
