Mothering Sunday – March 2023

Date: 10th Mar 2024 Author: Mark Eastman
Today the group filled St. Margaret’s Church to standing room for our Mothering Sunday service.
The service started with our two new squirrel flags being bless by Rev Christine, before being paraded.
The service included a talk from Rev Christine assisted by Fr Dominic who talked about sharing our love. This was followed by prayers written and led by a member from each section in the Group. Flowers were then blessed and the young people presented these to their mothers.
Today we also had a chance to celebrate our Leaders, congratulations to:
Tim Gusterson who was awarded his five years service
Simon Kilcoyne, Lauren Head & Russell Howard and Linda Edwards, Jenny Evans, Laura MacKeen, Becci Kilcoyne & Fran Clarkson who have all completed their Getting Started training
Diana Parisi who received her Manager’s wood badge, for completing her full training.
The Group were thankful to all the members who supported this service, especially the Squirrels who attended their first service, after just three weeks of meetings.
Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
