About the Club

Salisbury club is one of the oldest clubs in District 11. As our average age is increasing we are keen to welcome other local women who enjoy socialising and helping others in the hope that they will inject new ideas and energy. 

Our club members are friendly and supportive to each other. We all enjoy our monthly meetings, with an affordable lunch followed by business and possibly a speaker, as well as occasional coffee mornings. 

In recent years we have raised considerable sums for local charities such as Salisbury Trust for the Homeless and Salisbury Hospice. This year (2017-18) we also gave a sum to a local Scout who is raising money to attend an International Jamboree in the USA and donated to the District Chairman's charity Southern Domestic Abuse Service. We also gave stamped birthday cards to Julia's House for their young Hospice residents and have contributed to International charities by collecting various items such as used postage stamps and spectacles which can be recycled to help others.

Some members are able to attend quarterly District meetings and the annual Association Conference where they can appreciate the varied speakers, activities and venues as well as have the chance to meet old friends again and make new ones from other clubs.

About the Town

The city of Salisbury lies in the south of Wiltshire at the confluence of five rivers. It was begun in the early thirteenth century after the soldiers and clergy, based at what is now Old Sarum, quarrelled and the clergy decided to build a new cathedral a few miles to the south. North of Salisbury is the expanse of Salisbury Plain, still with some military training grounds and establishments and many sites of interest to archaeologists including, of course, the world renowned Stonehenge. To the south of the city lie the coastal counties of Dorset and Hampshire and also the New Forest.  

Built in the Early English style, Salisbury Cathedral has the tallest spire in England which dominates the city and the surrounding landscape. The city, with its many medieval buildings and chequer board street pattern, attracts many tourists despite its international notoriety this year as the place where a Russian spy and his daughter were subjected to a nerve poison.  

Salisbury is the commercial centre for south Wiltshire. Twice a week a Charter market takes place where local produce is sold along with many other items and once a year in October, locals can enjoy a visit from a travelling fair. 

Salisbury has a local theatre, Salisbury Playhouse and the Arts Centre which present a variety of quality productions and events on a regular basis usually attracting large audiences. In the summer for two weeks, Salisbury stages an International Arts festival which attracts many visitors. 

There are a number of sporting venues in the city and it has a great variety of sports clubs for men & women of all ages including its own football team.
