9th August, Mary Sumner Day was celebrated in our Diocese by the Trustees inviting
members who had completed 40 or more years in Mothers' Union.
Over 50 ladies gathered at St Mary's, Birnam for a beautiful service, conducted by
Rev David Brooke and our President, Lesley Brooke.
Rev David spoke of remembering our mothers and many there remarked on how many memories
he sparked into minds. This was followed by the most wonderful lunch all served
and contributed by members of the Trustees Board.
Trish Heywood, past Worldwide President, entertained us after lunch with her stories
of being a Mothers' Union member and where her life, as such, had taken her. Thanks
were extended to Rev David, Lesley, the Trustees and Trish by Sheila Redwood on behalf
of all who had attended.
