Mother's Union - Cleeve and Claverham

The Mother's Union is a worldwide organisation the purpose of which is to be concerned with all that strengthens and preserves marriage and Christian family life.

The Branch consists of 23 members and 1 IMPC member, with age ranging from 46 years to 87 years. We meet on the third Tuesday of each month [excluding August], mainly at members' homes over lunch.
The eleven meetings split into 1 AGM, 5 meetings with speakers, 2 outreach events and 3 social occasions. The Branch Leader, Lee O'Brien, with 6 members form a committee which ensures the smooth running of the Branch.
The outreach events consist of a Listen and Lunch in March with Cleeve Toddler Group, and in July we hold our annual Parents and Toddler Picnic.
Our three social events consist of an outing in June, our Christmas Party, and for many years we have been blessed by an invitation to lunch from a former resident of Cleeve, which is very much appreciated.
There is a monthly MU prayer group; we also have one member on the Deanery Prey Circle and another member is trained in the Parenting Course.
We provide a monthly Friendship Lunch catering for 36 people; provide help every Monday during term time to Stepping Stones Playgroup; supply help to Trinity Tots, and we collect all manner of goods for the Women's Refuge, including Easter Eggs and Christmas Presents. Once a year we hold a 'Full Tea' afternoon for the Overseas Funds.
We knit bonnets and booties for the Neo-natal Baby Unit, and garments of all kinds for 'Feed the Children'.
We are an active group and we always welcome new members, so if you are interested in joining us, contact: Branch run by Committee: Andrea Stoddart
