MARY Wright, a member of St Mary Magdalene Mother’s Union in Sale for nearly 60 years, was honoured at the group’s AGM.

The 82-year-old was presented with a special certificate by the vicar, the Rev Steve Rankin.

She was one of eight ladies who received certificates for clocking up over 40 years as members.

Mary, of Oakfield, Sale, has been attending group meetings for 56 years and she said: “I actually attended two years before that. My son was 18 months old and every time the vicar startedto speak he joined in. So I stopped going and then came back again later.

“I always enjoy the meetings. I think it’s the company. I also admire the work they do for overseas charities.”

Branch leader, Barbara Shimmings, said: “I am impressed by the commitment of Mary and so many of our members.”

The AGM took place on February 5.
