Newsletter - 28th September 2019

The general feeling of this month’s news is one of the year moving past summer to autumn and beyond.

If you read this soon enough (before Sunday morning), you will see that a harvest breakfast is being held at Church House on Sunday. We note also that there will be a harvest supper at Church House on 5th October.

The Church are holding a pumpkin festival on 26th of the month and the WI’s monthly contribution notes that they will be doing the judging for this competition. They also mention their Christmas shopping trip (beyond autumn) and their October meeting. Also looking towards Christmas are the Spirit of Milborne Port who make note of the Christmas lights switch on in late November.

The friends of Milborne Port library hang on to the summer theme with a discussion of the children’s summer reading challenge and party. The also highlight the operation of the new temporary library facilities.

The heritage group have their next meeting on 14th October when a local metal detectorist will be holding a quiz. Information on the heritage pages will be updated shortly, so do check back in a few days for more information.

The Parish Council’s latest news contains considerable information about SSDC local plan review and they will be holding their normal meetings this month as well as an HR meeting in addition.

This newsletter receives weekly reports on roadworks in the village and where they are likely to cause major disruption in the village, we post a note on the news pages. Please keep checking back through the month to see if there are any new reports. 

With kind permission of the Milborne Port magazine, the redeveloment of the Medleycott centre is also reviewed as it nears completion.

On 17th October, we note from the Primary School’s diary feed, that there will be an official opening of the new Wheathill classroom, now well integrated into the school’s operation.

Moviola is back. For some reason we missed last month’s notice (sorry about that), however, this month on 25th the film Red Joan, starring Judi Dench will be screened.

Looking over the turn of the month into November, we note the church are back to the theme of food with a quiz night and fish and chip supper at the village hall.

Finally, if we have missed anything you believe we should be reporting, please do get in touch.
