Loving service for mums

MOTHER'S Day came early at Lismore Parish Centre Preschool when they young students treated their mums to a special afternoon tea at their very own Mother's Day Cafe.

The children had several practice runs with cups of water before putting on their aprons to serve their mums butterfly cakes and cups of tea and coffee.

Heaven Joosse, 4, of East Lismore carefully carried a cup of coffee to her mum Emily without spilling a drop.

She said she felt a little bit worried she might drop the cup, but all the practice runs served her well.

Preschool supervisor Melissa Ianna said the Mother's Day Cafe had been dreamed up by previous students and was now a tradition at the centre, with the first one being held six years ago.

She said it was a way the children could show their mums how much they loved them by waiting on them.

Tomorrow is Mother's Day.
