At our meeting on November 16th our guest speaker was the Reverend Helen Morby of Kinnerly, whose talk "My Journey" told of how she became ordained. It was an inspiration to anyone who may be thinking of going down the same road. A vote of thanks was given by Mrs Kath Meeks who also presented the Reverend Helen with a plant.
Mrs Kath Meeks will retire at the end of this year as programme secretary, having served Mothers' Union for the last twelve and a half years organising speakers. Kath has done a wonderful job getting many varied and interested speakers but now feels she wold like to pass it over to someone else. Mrs Heather Wright will now be taking over from Kath as our programme secretary and has indeed organised this year's splendid programme. Heather presented Kath with a lovely plant and we thank Kath for the wonderful job she has done. Thank you Kath.

Our next meeting will be our lunch time Christmas meal at the Black Lion on the 7th December 12.30 for 1pm.

May I wish everyone peace and joy at Christmas and look forward to a great Mothers' Union year 2016.

Next year's subscription £20.00 will be due on the 1st of January.

With love and a happy Christmas

At the meeting on the 19th October, our guest speaker was Mrs. Pat McLaughlin MBE. Pat in her beautiful outfit that she wore to Buckingham Palace gave a most enjoyable talk and film on her day to receive the MBE. Pat received the MBE for Tourism and Work in the Community and was presented with her MBE by HRH Prince Charles. We all felt immensely proud of her. A vote of thanks was given by myself and Pat was presented with a plant. Tea with delicious cakes made and served by Mrs. Heather Wright and Mrs. Kath Meeks.

Our next meeting will be on November 16th, 2pm at the Town Hall, with a talk "My Journey" by Reverend Helen Morby.

Our Annual Coffee Morning was held on Saturday June 6th at the Town Hall. Once again we had a magnificent array of home made cakes on our Mothers' Union Cake Stall. We also had a lovely plant stall, "eclectic" stall etc. and we made £361.02 for Mothers' Union Funds.

June the 15th was our Summer Outing. 45 members and friends went with Lakeside Coaches to Conwy. The coach took us along the picturesque route into Wales through Llangollen, Corwen, Llanrwst, and onto the historic Conwy. The weather was sunny and the sea was calm. Some walked around the walls while others sat by the harbour and looked around the Medieval Church. We all had a lovely day and once again thanks to Connie for arranging yet another memorable outing.

Our next meeting will be on Monday July 20th at 2pm at the Town Hall with a talk on "Saints" by Mr S Parry. There will not be a meeting in August.

Our September outing will be to Lichfield on the 21st September 2015.

Lichfield is a beautiful and interesting city to visit, lots to do and see whether your interest be pleasurable, cultural or a mixture ! A good variety of shops and café's. Tickets £10.00 contact Connie Mason for tickets and details on 01948 780309.


Yours with love,
