Newsletter - 30th May 2019

This month sees the annual summer fete and Party @ the Port at the Springfield Road recreation ground this coming Saturday June 1st. As usual this is organised by the Spirit of Milborne Port, who are aiming to make it better than ever.

If you are looking for some quieter entertainment, on the 7th June there will be one of a series of organ recitals at the organ museum on Chapel Lane, and on 15th June there will be a concert at St. John’s Church.

Last month saw the annual meeting of the Parish Council at which, following elections, the new council was installed. You can read about the make up of the council in their “News from the Council chamber” series of articles. We notice that the Council have placed “gates”, at each of the main entrances to the village which are intended to help moderate traffic speeds as does the recently commissioned SID (speed indicating device) which will be rotated around the same three entrances.

The Church will be holding a Safari supper at Church House on 8th June with proceeds in support of the Church.

The History and Heritage group continue with their talks and walks and this month, the talk will be on “Gerald Daniels legacy” on 17th of the month. They will also be conducting their monthly short summer evening walks again this year.

Outside the village we have also heard of a garden open for viewing on 16th.

The Primary School reports on its excitement and the start of the build of the new classroom, scheduled to be ready in the autumn.

More summer news from the WI who are planning their outing on 27th of the month.

The library will soon move to its temporary location at the East Street car park and they are celebrating the 30 years of it being housed at Cross Cottage with an open morning on 28th of the month. In their monthly letter, the Friends of Milborne Port Library also talk about a range of events including the children’s summer reading challenge.

There is of course much more going on in our village as a browse of the on line diary will show. If we have missed anything that you think should be reported now or in the future, please do get in touch.
