… I asked Edith (a long term member) how she was settling in. “Truth be told I am still finding my feet, I really stepped out of my comfort zone when it became apparent that without a President our MWi would have to fold. The ladies have been so supportive and encouraging”.
Stepping into Lena Campbell’s shoes after a 9 year term of President could feel a challenge, but I am sure with support and prayers, Edith will soon feel that she has made her own mark.
Lena told me of how she enjoyed her time as President and continues to be an active member “they are just such a great bunch”.
By all accounts they certainly seem to enjoy their time together … the squeals of laughter that leek out under the closed door and into the hallway is a testament to that!
MWi meets every month on a Monday night at 8 – 9 (ish). All ladies of any age are welcome to pop along and have fellowship and listen and interact with the visiting speaker. Ask Sandra Conroy or Edith Raj for further details.
I caught up with Hettie Heffern from the Friday Craft Club recently where she told me how busy they have been.
“We counted the items we have made since September and packed them up to take to the Royal Maternity Neo Natal Unit. The inventory of knitted items came to: 48 baby body warmers, 14 cardigans, 126 hats, 30 pairs mittens, 22 pairs bootees and 25 blankets! We have had help from a few friends for which we are very grateful”
Hettie and the ladies certainly aren’t sitting on their laurels …”Our new project is underway where we are knitting hats and scarves for the homeless”.
Keep checking here to find out how they get on, and if you feel you want to be part of this highly satisfying production line… or even want a chance to develop or share your own skills. Drop us a line and we will point you in the right direction. Well done ladies!
It is with great sadness that we bring you the news of the passing of Mrs Joan White. Joan along with her husband Bob were much loved founding members of Mossley Methodist Church. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends at this time.
