Shenfield’s longest serving Tea Lady passes away - It is with great sadness that we have to say goodbye to Mary Hindley who passed away yesterday, age 70.
The funeral service has been arranged for 2.00pm on Wednesday 23rd July at St Mary’s Church, Shenfield.
Family flowers only. Donations welcomed to MacMillan Nurses, British Heart Foundation, or Cancer Research.
Mary will be greatly missed but happily remembered, for she was never seen without a smile on her face, just as in this photo. Our sincerest condolences to Bill, husband of 42 years, sons Michael & Richard and family.
Mary prepared and made teas from an early age. First helping her mum make teas for her husband Joe when he played for the 2nd XI. She then progressed to being in charge for her husband Bill’s time, also for the 2nd XI. It was only last year when she returned to being an assistant for Michelle to help out Michael.
Mary still visited the home games when her boys where playing.

Hurry though…there’s not long left!
Other prizes on offer too.
The national playing survey will not only will help in evidencing to the government around possible funding for the game, but also in providing us valuable information to clubs, leagues and districts around the current feeling amongst players in the game.
