Mothers set to unite

A ST Matthews Anglican Church community initiative will bring a mothers group from the Solomon Island to Gayndah during a Queensland tour.

Gayndah Anglican Church member Angela Slack said the program was one that aimed to unite mothers across national and international borders with this visit being a shining example of its success.

"We have 26 ladies coming over and they are only going to three places in Queensland,” Mrs Slack said.

"Cairns, Brisbane and Gayndah.

"They are mother's union members.”

Event organiser Cheryl Cumming said the Church was looking forward to the visit.

"We've asked other Churches if they would like to attend,” Mrs Cumming said.

"On the Monday morning we are going to the Gayndah State School and we will have some items going on there and the ladies will practise some cultural dancing for the school.”

Members of the community are welcome to come and meet the mothers group as well as take part in some of the events designed for community interaction.

The mothers group are set to arrive this Sunday, November 19 and will stay until Tuesday, November 21.

"We have a lot of our ladies here go to other places over Queensland but this time we have these lovely women visiting us from the Solomon Islands and sharing their stories with us,” Mrs Slack said.

"Within our community, we will be providing for them, having them in our homes or in shared accommodation that we will be providing and all the activities we have planned will be lovely with some community relations too.”
