Soroptimist meeting in Upper Hutt


Yesterday was a cloudy but dry afternoon.

A friend of mine invited me to come with her to their Soroptimist meeting.

The event was to

Walk the Talk to stop the domestic violence against women and girls 2014

We had a lovely time in a beautiful garden.

We were given words written on paper and

 had to arrange them to make a sentence

saying something  about violence against women.DSCF7287

We had some tea and scones while enjoying the afternoon outside.
