Afternoon M.U. Group
At the March meeting Mrs Ann Harris, Branch Leader gave an interesting and amusing talk on the “History of Ellesmere Mothers’ Union” starting in 1906. The talk was taken from snippets from old record books that Mrs Mary Jones had given to her. Sadly, the Temperance Rooms, Trimpley Hall and St. Mary’s Hall have all passed into history and The Old Vicarage, where afternoon teas, garden parties and fetes were held—Sold !, but in spite of all that the Mothers’ Union is still very much alive and thriving. Many of the old scrap books were displayed and tea and delicious dainty little cakes made by Kath, Val and Phyllis were served. The vote of thanks and a lovely basket of flowers were given to Ann by Mrs Kath Meeks. The next afternoon meeting in the Town Hall at 2pm will be a talk on "Adult Literacy" by the Rev. Karen Davies.
The February evening meeting was held at the Vicarage, and a very informative and moving talk on Hope House was given by Mrs Anne Edge.
The next evening meeting will be in April 30th at 7.30pm in St. Johns Room with "Flower Arranging" by Mrs Ann Edwards.
Yours with love,
