FAMILIES of every child baptised in a town during the past three years are being invited to a special Mother's Day service.

Mothers of all ages will be presented with posies of daffodils during a 10am service at St Edmund’s Church, in Sedgefield, on March 31.

The Reverend Geoffrey Short, team Rector in the parish of the Upper Skerne, will lead the service.

He said: "The flowers will be distributed to those people in our lives whom we love and cherish.They symbolise the beauty of God’s creation."

Families are invited to join regular worshippers after the service for refreshments.
