Afternoon M.U. Group

At the February meeting Mrs Beryl Metcalf, co-ordinator of the Mothers' Union Faith & Policy unit on "Campaigning", gave an interesting talk, mainly on women's' issues, such as domestic violence and safety on the internet for children which is difficult to control as well as being very careful and aware about what is published on Facebook. The Vote of Thanks was given by Mary Goulbourne. Teas were served by Mrs Phyllis Dean and Mrs Heather Wright. The next afternoon meeting will be in the Town Hall on March 17th when Mrs Ann Harris will show some of the group's many old scrap books. Tea and cake will be served.

At the February evening meeting Ann Harris welcomed the speaker Rosemary Craven who gave a talk on recent conflicts in the World. She opened with a reading from the Bible and a lively discussion followed.

The next evening meeting will be on March 26th starting 7.30pm in St. John's Room with a talk on counselling by Mrs Meg Wilkes. Mothering Sunday will be celebrated on March 30th at St. Mary's Church at 10.1Sam. This will be a special service taken by members of the Mothers' Union, with posies and cards given our by the Sunday School.

Yours with love,

Ann
