No sooner had I introduced Ted to the congregation at Pencoed and told them that ‘You can take Ted to wherever you go if you want.’ that a hand went up at the back inviting Ted to the Mothers’ Union meeting that afternoon.
It was a joint party for Angela who was 70 (which was a surprise to me as I had her in her later 30’s) and a gathering of all the local girls of the team often referred to as ‘Gods secret army’.
There is more info about the Mothers’ Union here: https://www.mothersunion.org/
and if you want to go along to the local branch then contact Joan the local leader. Her email is here: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org,uk
