The branch meeting was held on Monday October 15th, 2pm at the Town Hall. Unfortunately, I could not be there, so the meeting was taken by one of our Committee Members, Mrs Heather Wright.

Our speaker was the Rev'd David Crowhurst "What God has Dropped to Me" who spoke about his experiences as a Parish Priest, telling interesting stories, some of which were amusing and some of which were sad. Tea and cake was served by Phyllis Dean and Thelma Ireland and a Vote of Thanks was given by Mary Goulbourne.

Our next branch meeting is November 19th, 2pm at the Town Hall when one of our own members Barbara O'Donovan will be telling us "My Trip of a Lifetime". Do come along and bring your friends, everyone is welcome.

The Branch meeting, the last one of 2018 (how the time flies) was held on Monday November 19th, 2pm at the Town Hall. Mrs Mary Goulbourne was welcomed onto our committee along with Mrs Mavis Griffiths. The speaker was one of our own members

Barbara O'Donovan who spoke about "My trip of a lifetime". Barbara told us of her amazing time in Africa in a small village 95 miles from anywhere staying with the Catholic Priest who, along with others, helped to build a school, meeting house, houses etc. Barbara also showed a video of her trip from start to finish including wild animals, it all looked absolutely idyllic. Heather Wright and Joyce Feeney served delicious home made cakes and mince pies, plus tea and coffee

I carried our old more appropriate Mothers' Union banner at the 100th Anniversary Remembrance Service at Church, the old banner given in 1937 by Adelaide Mary Ashton, had not been used since we had the new one in the late 1970s. Mothers should be recognised and remembered as they gave their sons for the Country.

Our final meeting is the Christmas Party on December 3rd at The Boathouse.

We have yet again had a very packed and enjoyable year. I would like to thank the Committee for all their hard work in making this happen and also thank the Reverend Phillip Edge for his support of the Mothers' Union.

I wish you all a very peaceful and blessed Christmas with lots of joy and look forward to seeing you at the many Christmas Services at Church, see the magazine for details

Yours with love,

Ann

Thank you all so much for the beautiful cards, prayers, kindness, help and support given to me during my recent illness and stay in hospital, it certainly helped me to pull through. I am pleased to say I am now feeling much better and look forward to our next meeting.

Unfortunately our summer outing to Llandudno had to be cancelled due to cost, but hopefully things will be ok next year.

We did not have a meeting in August, two of our members Mrs Phyllis Dean and Mrs Susan Francis entered a lovely display at the Methodist Church Flower Festival, promoting Mothers' Union both here in Ellesmere and world wide. Thank you Phyllis and Susan. Our next meeting will be on the 15th October, 2pm at the Town Hall. Our speaker will be the

Rev. David Crowhurst with "What god has dropped to me!". Do come along and bring your friends, everyone is welcome.

Yours with love,

Ann
