Mothers U Celebrates 130 years

Eight members of Leyburn and Bellerby Mothers’ union attended an enjoyable service at Ripon Cathedral to celebrate 130 years of the M U in the Diocese of Ripon and Leeds, and lay up that banner, as we move forward into the new Diocese of West Yorkshire and the Dales on Jan 1st. We were welcomed by the Dean, Bishop James preached and our Diocesan Chaplain presided. Our banner was carried with pride amongst all the others and candles were carried to the M U Chapel representing each branch. At the end of the service everyone enjoyed tea, cake and chat. We all also took a cake and brought home one from another branch, ours from our one time linked branch, Horsforth, which will be shared at our monthly Cuppa and Chat morning on Tuesday.
