Mothers’ Union Report – 10th July 2014
Our Garden Party at the Vicarage
The weatherman got it wrong – or was it our prayers? The sun shone, the hats were worn, the delicious cakes came. Strawberries, ice cream and cream were on the menu, teas, coffees and juices.
Bargains to be had at the Bring and Buy, and Sue Bell’s famous cryptic quizzes – names of towns and villages all found in Derbyshire – and prizes to be won. Janet entertained us with her skill of playing her piano accordion and birthday cake was eaten, courtesy of Andrea who, sadly, was unable to join us until the cake had all gone (due to someone working on her windows!). Our thanks going to Stella and Michael for their hospitality.
Just how lucky were we? Sitting enjoying the fellowship and friendship – all this plus thinking of others as we raised over £151.00 for the Mothers’ Union Wheels Appeal.
All in all a fabulous afternoon.
Thank you to everyone who baked, bought and participated in every way.
In contrast, our Queen was in Derbyshire visiting Matlock, Smedley Factory and Chatsworth House. They all had a fabulous day too.
The birthdays we remembered in July were Andrea Swarbrick, Penny Downs and Rachel Lovelace and in August it was Margaret Turner’s birthday..
