Mothers’  Union- 1914-2016

 The existence of a Westwood Mothers’ Union Branch is well documented and is traced back to its listing in 1927, though papers confirm a Mothers’ Union Missionary Fund in 1914and that 2s.0d (old 2 shillings) was also donated in 1919.  Reference to the Branch appears again in the Cathedral Book of 1934.  That Branch closed in 1960 but was re-opened in 1976.  Since then it has been active with regular monthly meetings, has served the Church and Village communities in many ways and has supported the worldwide work and links of the MU. 

Now, with reducing numbers and the necessity to provide administrative leadership, it has been decided to close the Branch.  However, local activities that the MU undertook will continue –

the Advent Travelling Nativity, the hosting of Westwood Nursery Nativity Play and the Garden Party for Senior Citizens are well-established community events that are not disappearing from the scene. 

 This year’s Senior Citizens’ Garden Party will take place on Wednesday 20th July at 3.00pm in Mary and David Needham’s garden.
