Newsletter – 31st March 2019

After a cold and wet start to March, in the closing days of the month, spring appears, at least temporarily, to have sprung. On the topic of weather, we are aware that the weather display on the home page of the website has failed and are searching for a solution to this.

The Parish Council, in addition to its normal news from the council chamber, has been advertising the fact that there will be an election on 2nd May. Nomination forms can be found here and the last day for nominations to be submitted to the District Council office in Yeovil is Tuesday 3rd April.

As well as the normal Parish Council meetings during the month, there will be the annual Parish meeting on 9th April at the Town Hall.

The Social club have a number of live music events through the month on 6th and 13th, and of course the big live music show this month is the Milborne Port Opera production of “Anything Goes” from 24-27 of the month.

Also at the Village Hall this month will be the screening of the film “Peterloo” on 12th April. This film by Mike Leigh about the infamous 19th century massacre cannot be ignored in today’s world.

Sadly, another event at the village hall, art for parents has had to be cancelled due to lack of support.

The Spring litter pick will take place on 13th April. If you want to take part, please e-mail the council chairman, John Oldham at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

There are, of course, the usual updates and activities for groups such as Spirit of Milborne Port, the History and Heritage group, the Friends of Milborne Port Library and the WI.

Henstridge Parish Council have advised that they are holding an information evening event on staying safe online. Have a look here for details.

Of course, we are now in the period of Lent, and the Church will be holding their Lent lunches and seminars on Lent during this period.

Of course there are many other regular events going on; please check the diary for more. If you see anything missing or incorrect, please get in touch.

Finally, in case the grapevine has not reached you yet, the planning appeal for housing development at Station Road has been dismissed.
