Newsletter April 27th, 2019

On May 2nd, there will be elections for the District and Parish Councils, with the Camelot room acting as polling station. For the Parish Council there are 19 candidates for the 13 places. There will be an informal meeting with candidates at 7pm at the Tippling Philosopher this coming Tuesday 30th April.

Several councillors turned up at the spring litter pick a couple of Saturdays ago, and with over 30 people “picking”, many bags of rubbish were harvested, and several reported that there seemed to be less litter in the village than historically has been the case, though the outskirts did not fair so well. It is a good start, anyway for the South West in Bloom campaign which the village is entering again this year. Thinking of plants, the gardening club will be holding their spring plant sale on 18th May outside the Town Hall.

The East Street Car Park has new residents in the form of two, 22kW electric vehicle charging points which went live earlier in April.

The monthly series of Organ Recitals will continue on 3rd May at the English Organ School.

The WI will hold their next meeting on 9th May and they also report on their AGM, whilst the Friends of Milborne Port Library report on their continuing activities to ensure that we still have a library after the reduction of support from the County Council.

The Primary School are seeking an additional Governor to fill a vacancy at an exciting time in the history of the school as it is about to gain an additional classroom.

The Sports and Social Club will be holding events toward the end of May including live music on 24th and bingo on 30th of the month.

We could not close this newsletter without mentioning the summer fete and party at the port which will take place very early this year on 1st June.

Of course there are many more things going on in our village as a look at the diary pages will show.
