Tuesday May 15th The Mothers' Union Deanery Festival was held at the "Parish Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary", Ellesmere at 2.30pm, with members from Welsh Frankton and Welshampton . The Service was led by Rev. Karen Davies with members of Mothers' Union taking part. The Theme for 2018 is "In Mary Sumner's Footsteps". The address was given by Helen Palfrey, Diocesan Trustee and Lichfield Archdeaconry Leader. Helen spoke of her recent visit to the Lichfield Link Diocese in South Africa. Our members served delicious refreshments in St, John's Room.

The summer outing will be to Erbistock St. Hilary's Church, the Boathouse and the Garden House, leaving Ellesmere at 11 .00am and returning home for 4pm.

Monday 21st May our branch meeting was held at 2pm in the Town Hall with "I do like to be beside the Seaside" by the Rev. Jane Stephenson. Jane told us of the sculptor David Nash, who lives and works in North Wales. He sculptured a huge wooden boulder from a fallen oak tree relating its journey through rivers and wooded areas, through an estuary and all along it was being moulded and having chips grazed off it. Jane likened the boulder to being like us and the way our lives are shaped and moulded by life. Jane made her talk feel very personal to all of us and we were moved by it.

Our next meeting is on 16th July. You are all welcome to come along and bring your friends

Yours with love,

Ann and Donna
