Mothers’ Union Branch Notes
98 Years and Counting!
We had a good turnout at our March meeting - Compline,
followed by Father Gavin’s discussion on this year’s Lenten
reflections. The Mothering Sunday Cake Sale was a great
success; £120 was raised for the ‘Make a Mothers’ Day’
Appeal; we hope everyone enjoyed our cakes.
The next Deanery meeting is on 12th April 1030 at St Mary’s
Lewisham and all are welcome.
We meet again on 2nd May when Fiona Spargo-Maggs will be
the speaker. Her subject is Drug and Alcohol abuse among
young people; she has spoken to many school children and
young families on the subject. Fiona speaks from bitter
experience having lost a son to drugs. Her mission is to reach
as many as possible trying to bring the problem to
everybody’s notice. We start at 7 pm with refreshments and the
talk will commence at 7.30 pm.
Babs, Jean and myself attended the Spring Council at Trinity
House on 21st March. Ideas were discussed for spending a
recently received legacy. Two ideas put forward were; the
Lily Trust that supports survivors of human trafficking and
modern slavery; English taught to women by women. There is
a toolkit available to encourage parishes and other
community groups to reach out to non-English speaking
refugees, asylum seekers and vulnerable migrants.
Wishing everyone a happy and blessed Easter.
