The Anglesey Group Mothers' Union
"Floral Arrangements for Christmas" was the subject for our Mothers'Union Meeting on November 19th and Pauline Miller from Burwell came to demonstrate how we could create these. What an inspiring afternoon we had! Pauline is a very gently spoken and creative lady and she demonstrated how we could make 4 arrangements for Christmas, making it all look so easy! A beautiful Advent Ring was created from mainly greenery that can be found in our gardens and other arrangements used very few flowers and she showed us how, with a little imagination, striking arrangements can be created by using very simple materials. It was intriguing to see how a Wreath for the door was so easily created from stripped Clematis twigs and she made this all in a matter of minutes. We had a lovely afternoon and I'm sure that even the less creative among us were inspired to "have a go" at making a simple decoration at home.
At the time of writing we are preparing to have our Christmas Lunch on December 10th and this year we are catering for 40 people -this includes some husbands! By the time you read this we will I am sure have enjoyed a sumptuous lunch in convivial company.
We look forward to the New Year with our Service on January 21st at which we will be enroling at least one new member to the Mothers'Union. We have a very varied and interesting Programme planned for 2010 and everyone is very welcome to come along to any of the meetings especially if there is a subject which is of particular interest to you. Programme Cards for 2010 are at the back of all our 5 Churches so please do take one if you haven't already got one and would like to see the Programme. All our Meetings are on Thursday afternoons and take place in Lode Chapel at 2.30pm.
We look forward to 2010 -please come along!
