Well I never dreamt I would be writing an article like this for Mothers’ Union. What difficult times we are in. I am sad to tell you that there will be no more meetings at Branch, Deanery or Diocesan level for at least six months. So, there will be no Branch meetings including the Strawberry Tea, no luncheon at the Golf Club in August and no Deanery Festival.

This is a very difficult time for all of us especially if we are self isolating. We need to keep in touch with each other by phone to ensure that we are coping.

It is important to keep positive if we can and one very positive thing we can do is pray for everyone throughout the world who is affected by the Coronavirus.

As I am typing this I have just received notification that all church services are cancelled. It is more important than ever that we should maintain our personal prayer life at home.

With love and prayers
