This is the banner of the branch of the Alvediston Mothers Union.

Mary Sumner (1828–1921) founded the Mothers Union as an organisation that would unite mothers of all social classes in mutual support and promote motherhood. In 1876, after the birth of her first grandchild Mary was inspired to bring together the mothers of the parish in mutual support and held the first meeting of what was to become the Mothers’ Union in the Old Alresford Rectory. Today the Union is a global movement with over 3.6 million members. Mary is buried with her husband in the grounds of Winchester Cathedral.
