Mothers’ Union Report – 11th December 2014
Food Glorious Food, was the sight that greeted us, as we gathered for the Ilkeston St Mary’s Mothers Union Christmas Tea Party. It was a feast for the eyes, as well as for our stomachs. Tables with cake stands laden with delicious sandwiches, scones, vol-au-vents and all manner of small cakes to tempt us! Christmas crackers and decorative little Christmas hats with a chocolate inside, lovingly made by Sue Attenborough, for each one of us. (Oh Joy to the World).
We began with M.U. notices and prayers after which Andrea said grace, and we tucked in, even though some of us already felt quite full, it was all too good to refuse.
A Christmas quiz was enjoyed by all and Margaret Turner read a wonderful passage about a school nativity play from ‘The Little Village School’ by Gervase Phinn, which was very humorous and left us with memories of our own children’s school days.
On behalf of all those present Mary Morton gave a heartfelt thank you to the ladies who had prepared everything and to Margaret for entertaining us.
A wonderful afternoon and we look forward to our next meeting in January.
