20th June

A very enjoyable evening was had by about thirty members when they left in seven cars from St. Mary's Church on a Car Treasure Hunt organised by Mrs. Speedy and Mrs. Harris. The Trail led to the Wishing Well at Worlaby, where supper was served. The occupants of the winning car were Mrs. V. Spittlehouse, Mrs. V. Towle, Mrs. M. Watson and Mrs. M. Bilton.
At the end of the evening Mrs. Harris was presented with a record token in appreciation of her services as Treasurer, on her resignation owing to the fact that she is leaving Barton.

Corporate Communion: Wednesday 1st August 9.30 am IN ST. PETERS CHURCH
The Coffee Morning on behalf of the work of the Mothers' Union Overseas held at the Vicarage on 23rd June was a great success, making a record total of 67. I should like to thank all members who helped me to raise this wonderful total.
Our members had a most enjoyable outing to the Lincolnshire Show when members from Saxby and Ferriby M.U. joined us.
Mrs. Taylor, Mrs. Richards and Mrs. Gledhill were invited to the home of Mrs. Fell, Worlaby House, to help with the tea party for the Invalid Members Prayer Circle. The Vicar of Scawby helped serve tea and wheeled the invalids around the grounds. The Vicar of Worlaby led us in prayer, and we came home feeling grateful for our our good health.
How pleasing it is to hear of some of the kind things our young people do. On Tuesday Afternoon July 10th some residents of the Willows, fit enough to make the journey, were taken by bus to the Barn at Tealby. The Matron arid her husband, Mr. and Mrs. Howard, and some of the staff went with them, as well as six young ladies from St. Mary's House at Beretun School, who were most kind in helping the old people. St. Mary's House had also raised the money for the outing. I think St. Mary's House deserve a big thank you.
M. G.
