As we start this new year and a round up of what is happening in the first weeks of the year, the website editors wish everyone a happy and prosperous new year.
On the news pages, the WI report on their Christmas festivities and announce their first coffee morning and meeting of the new year. In another reminder of Christmas, the district council have teamed up with the Parish Council again to provide a tree recycling service. The Friends of Milborne Port library also report on the Christmas theme in the library.
The Parish Council held their first meeting of 2017 on Tuesday 3rd January and a brief report can be found on the Parish Council pages with full minutes to follow shortly. The Parish Plan group, always seeking new ideas particularly from younger members of the community, will be meeting at the Town Hall on Monday 9th January.
The gardening club hold their first meeting of the year on 10th January and have published a full programme for the year.
The first Moviola presentation of 2017 will take place on 21st January when “Hunt for the Wilderpeople” will be screened. As an alternative to the “telly” the Moviola series allow people to relax in a convivial atmosphere and enjoy a glass wine as they watch the film.
The Heritage group have their first meeting of the new year on 23rd of the month and all their meetings for the year are now on the diary. Villagers cannot fail to have witnessed the tremendous work done by Naomi Thorp on the fallen of WWI. She is now continuing that work recording the casualties of WW2.
Spirit of Milborne Port review the closing events of 2016 and report on their plans for this year, though we have just heard that they sadly have had to cancel their Burn’s night event at the Village Hall.
Finally, Milborne Port Opera rehearsals are now well into their stride, in fact they must be on a home run as their performances will take place in April.
In addition to the individual events and activities, you can find a full diary here. Although full, as things move around, there may be changes we have not been notified of. If you spot any errors, please contact the administrator to get them corrected.
