Mothering Sunday is on the fourth Sunday of Lent and this year it falls on Sunday 26th March.
Traditionally, it was a day when children, mainly daughters, who had gone to work as domestic servants were given the day off to visit their mother and family. As they walked along the country lanes the children would pick flowers to take to church or to give to their mother as a small gift.
Simnel Cake is associated with Mothering Sunday and Easter which is a fruit cake topped with almond paste and traditionally sugar violets would be used for decoration.
