Congratulations to Lesley Ireland who at our last Mothers Union meeting was awarded her 50 year badge and scroll.
Lesley was awarded her badge and scroll by our Diocesan President, Denise Brown.
Lesley joined in Cessnock as an Associate Member. This was because she was a single lady at the time.
When Lesley married she joined with Cockle Bay Group and lost the title of Associate member, she has two children and twin grandsons. .
She has been recycled as President, Secretary and Treasurer over the years.
Lesley has also been very involved in keeping in touch with those Baptised and is our Links correspondent.
The day was celebrated with a presentation of a bouquet of flowers and a special cake and morning tea to mark the day.
