We are sorry to report the death of Ruth Mangham who sadly passed away on Saturday 9th January aged 79 years. She and her husband , Peter, had been married for 57 years. Ruth joined the Mothers’ Union at Wentworth and Harley when the branch reformed in 2000. She was an active member and a very conscientious Treasurer. She became our Diocesan Overseas Representative and visited branches throughout the Diocese. Ruth joined the branch at Wath as an IMPC member when the Wentworth and Harley branch closed, due to health problems. Ruth was a much loved member who supported activities throughout the Deanery, Diocese and Province and will be sadly missed.
Our deepest sympathy and fondest and love to Peter.

Whilst we couldn’t hold our Christmas Market at the end of November, we still had the Hamper Raffle and members were very generous in their donations. Money was taken by cash, cheque or bank transfer and the Coordinator wrote donors names on the raffle tickets . The draw was done at the start of Sunday’s Zoom Church service on 6th Dec. Sale of tickets and associated donations have raised £400 for MU Literacy Programmes. Rosemary Kirkman.
