Speakers List

​Branch Leaders should all have received a recent copy of "Speakers and talks available for Branch Meetings". Due to GDPR, it cannot be displayed in its entirety on the website and so please contact us if you have not received one.

You can also see a copy of the speakers list with names and contact details omitted here.

The speakers list always changing and so if you find that someone on the speakers list is no longer able to speak, please inform Heather Greaves.

Speakers Expenses

​Both Mothers’ Union commissioned speakers and external speakers can claim reasonable expenses from the Diocese.
It is suggested that branch leaders/contacts are to send an expense form in advance to external speakers prior to their talk, who in turn should give it to the branch leader/contact, on the day they give their talk, who will then check it, sign it and return to Gary Askew, Treasurer by email ( or to the MU office for processing. It will then be authorised for payment by the DP/VP.
