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.

There was very much more to Mary than SCC tea lady:
  • The Royal British Legion awarded the 45 year bar to her service medal for selling poppies and organising collectors in the Shenfield & Hutton area every year.
  • For 55 years she sang in the St Mary’s church choir.
  • She was a staunch member of Shenfield Green WI and took on the role of secretary in 2013 and ended up being treasurer as well.
  • In 2009 she was awarded the Silver Acorn for outstanding services to Scouting. She supported Bill for decades in his scouting ventures and at Thriftwood took on the roles of Booking Secretary, Catering Manager and Tuckshop Manager.
