Newsletter - 28th June 2020

Composing this newsletter in the last days of June, with the prospect of the full summer months and holidays for some in store, it is sobering to see the images on TV of large groups of people with little evidence of social distancing. These are no doubt a minority of the population, however, to some of us, particularly in the over 70’s age group, it does increase the concern that this virus has not finished with us yet!

The scarecrow competition has, however, provided a lighter view on the. We particularly liked “Doris Trump”, complete with bottle of domestos. The competition was judged by Lord Allen and the results found on the news page.

Milborne Port in Bloom group has continued efforts to improve the look of the village, despite there being no competition to aim for this year, and the History group are continuing with their social history project in addition to opening the museum by appointment to household groups. Nathalie Hetherington is also researching Swatchford.

We are again pleased to support the Milborne Port Magazine by publishing a copy of it for those who have missed their personal copy.

The climate action group present their views on how to build a recovery in the aftermath of the pandemic.

The summer reading challenge for children is getting underway, as reported by the friends of Milborne Port library, one activity that has possibly seen a resurgence during lockdown.

The Somerset waste partnership continue to adapt to changes in government guidance and their latest newsletter is provided.

The Parish Council has been very active in recent weeks, with its meetings being conducted via Zoom, and their activities, including the removal of the arbour across from the Town hall are reported on the Parish Council site.

We hope you are staying safe. Please do continue to browse the pages of the website and do get in touch if you have any contributions.
