We celebrated our anniversary on May 17th with a special Eucharist and Tea Party. We were joined by guests from the Diocese, branch members from the Deanery and both past and present members of our Mothers’ Union. The service was conducted by Father Tony Lynett and the Rev Mandy Cuthbertson and most members of our branch also played a part. We were delighted that Barbara Haynes was able to join us and she gave thanks for our branch after the presentation. We were also pleased that there were six past branch leaders (formally enrolling members) amongst the congregation.
After the service we all enjoyed afternoon tea in the church hall and caught up with old friends. We had displayed the photo albums for people to see and other memorabilia from the past. A lot of fun was had remembering the past events and reminiscing.
