FORGET breakfast in bed: Willmot mums will be spoilt with a Mother's Day high tea.

Willmot Community Action Group has teamed up with Willmot Public School to serve up the inaugural event at The Hub church tomorrow, from 11am to 2pm.

Mums will relax with tea, sandwiches, cakes and scones while watching a fashion parade and performances from the school choir and viewing an exhibition of pupils' artworks, which will be for sale.

Almost 50 have already registered to attend.

Vicky Rewandowski from the Cyber Cafe came up with idea of a high tea.

"We wanted to do a nice gesture for mums in Willmot," community action group president Peta Kennedy said.

"It's a forgotten area where we don't have a doctor or chemist.

"All we have is an IGA, a takeaway shop and the Cyber Cafe.

"This is the first time something like this has been held here so we want to bring the community together."

There will be prizes and each mum will go home with a small gift.

"We want everyone to walk away feeling happier and relaxed," Mrs Kennedy said.

"We hope they go back to their friends and tell them about it."

The community action group is also organising a Father's Day event.

"Dads do just as a great job as the mums do," Mrs Kennedy said.

Cost is a gold coin donation, which will go towards the school's art program.

The Hub is in Carteret Avenue.
