The St Peter’s Ladies Fellowship started over 20 years ago for women who worked during the day and were unable to attend the Mothers’ Union meetings.
Their meetings were also monthly on the 2nd Tuesday evening of each month from September until April. This year meetings have been moved to 1.30 in the afternoons.
Ladies Fellowship members are also very busy in the Parish supporting all events and services. They arrange a very successful Harvest Supper on the 2nd Tuesday of October which is enjoyed by the whole community and help with the arranging of the Christingle Service in January.
To celebrate St Davids Day, the Fellowship members and friends enjoyed a lunch at the Plas. Cawl, trifle or bread & butter pudding was the order of the day. Muriel thanked the staff of the Plas for a delicious meal, also thanking Alice for organising the meal.
Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 14th April when Mr Chris Fuller will speak about his work with nature conservation.
Everyone is welcome to join us.
Muriel Evans welcomed members and led a short service, the reader was Maureen Hughes. Minutes for December and January were read and accepted. It was agreed to hold the March meeting at the Plas, where we will have a Cawl lunch to celebrate St David’s Day. Our trip in May will be to Ysgwrn, Hedd Wyn’s house, details will be available later in March. Our speaker was Jean Preston who gave a talk on traditions at African weddings and celebrations. Jean brought along some native costumes for us to see, which were colourful and mostly hand printed. The tea hostesses were Joan Williams and Maureen Hughes. Muriel thanked them both and especially Jean Preston for a very interesting talk.
The first meeting of the Fellowship for 2015 was our Annual Dinner held at the Maengwyn Cafe. The Reverand Kathleen said grace, and 18 members and friends enjoyed a delicious meal. Muriel thanked Shirley and the staff for preparing and serving our meal. Everyone then took part in a very enjoyable quiz, set by Alice, the winner was Wendy Fuller. A special prize was awarded to Angela Jones, who was the only one to answer a particular question.
Bronwen and Muriel then led a session of Bingo and most members went home with a prize and a full stomach.
The next meeting will be on the 10 February, the guest speaker will be Jean Preston who will speak about weddings and celebrations in Uganda. Everyone is welcome to join us at 2:00 pm
Thank you Alice.
St Peter’s Fellowship and friends travelled to Abbey Cwm Hir to view the 52 rooms, each decorated with a fully dressed Christmas tree. A lovely start to the Christmas season.
Please note, the Fellowship annual dinner at Maengwyn Cafe will be held on Saturday 10 January at 6:30 pm, not on the 3rd January.
Members are asked to come and help prepare the Christingle oranges at the Parish Office on Saturday 3rd January at 10:00 am for the service on Sunday 4th January.
Mrs Muriel Evans welcomed members to the meeting and led a short service, Alice Hughes was the reader. There has been very positive feedback from the Harvest Supper with everyone having enjoyed the evening.
The guest speaker this month was Rab Jones who spoke about the names on our War Memorial in Machynlleth concentrating on those who died in the 1st World War. Research into these men and the part they played in the war was very interesting and is ongoing. The ancestors of many of the men still live in the Machynlleth area. The Rev Kathleen thanked Rab for a very interesting talk and for the reminder that these “names” were young men with lives and families in this town.
The tea hostesses were Dorothy Edwards and Alice Hughes.
