Mothers' Union - The meeting on September 17 was held in church and provided a suitable occasion to admit Heather Wilcox to membership and also for members to re-affirm their commitment to the MU. After the service Heather gave a talk which was a snapshot of her life before becoming curate at All Saints' and St Margaret's Church. Heather began life in Hertfordshire where, at eight years old and in the pulpit of the church where her parents worshipped and her father was organist, declared that 'one day she would be a Vicar preaching from some other pulpit'. Her personal faith endured but at 17 years of age she left home to study for three years at King's Lynn which would lead to a nursing career. Here she met her future husband, Geraint, and in 1992 they were married followed in 1996 by a daughter and in 2000 a son. At the church where they worshipped, Heather gradually undertook more and more duties. The incumbent vicar enquired if she had thought about entering the ministry and, after discussion and prayer, the door to her nursing career began to close. Two pictures in particular spoke to Heather, William Holman Hunt's 'Light of the World' and an iconic picture of Jesus made up of thousands of minute photographs of visitors to St Paul's from all walks of life, both of which she reflected on and displayed. The Teddy Edward Club is run by members of MU (zero to five years) and meets in church the first Wednesday in the month. The annual outing took place on September 10 when approximately 45 babies, toddlers, mums and dads, grandparents and members travelled by train to Pettits Animal Adventure Park. The next TEC will be held on Wednesday. The next meeting of MU is Thursday at 2pm in the Church Hall, and is a talk given by Claire Richards on UNICEF.
