Corporate Communion Sunday, 1st January at 10.15 am
We did not have a meeting in December, but we did have our Christmas Party on Monday, 12 December at The Black Lion. After an enjoyable meal, the evening was rounded off with a few Christmas poems. It was nice that some members from both the afternoon and evening groups were able to come and, as always, we were glad to welcome the loyal friends who support our events. I hope that everyone enjoyed the evening as much as I did and I would like to thank Connie Mason for all her hard work as the main organiser of this very pleasant occasion.
The subscription for next year will be £ 18 and it would be helpful if this could be paid at the January meeting. Mothers' Union does such important work both here and overseas and I hope that this rather large increase in the subscription will not put members off from joining this year.
Afternoon MU Group
The first afternoon meeting of the new year will be on 16 January at 2.00 pm at the Town Hall when Rodney Upton will be giving a talk on the history of St Mary's bells.
The first evening meeting of the new year will be on Thursday, 19 January at 7.30 pm in St John's Room when Rosemary Walker, a Mothers' Union trustee and former Diocesan President, will talking about the MU Family Life Programme.
Yours in love and fellowship.
