Newsletter – 31st July 2020

With businesses, including restaurants and pubs opening up, there is a feeling of some sense of normality around. But of course it is not normal always to be conscious of that 2 metre distance requirement as we pass people in the street and see people with face coverings as they enter shops.

Whilst life is not normal, there is always activity going on and here is our monthly round up.

We note that although Church services are limited to Zoom meetings, St. John’s Church is open for private prayer.

The Parish Council report on the opening of the play parks at Gainsborough and Springfield Road. The Parish Council also note the relocation of the bus stop shelter across from the town hall to the cemetery. Maureen Lock writes about the efforts to improve the look and feel of the village as a result of the Parish Plan in 2010 of which the initial placement of the shelter was a part.

The village in bloom competition will not be held this year, it was nice to see the hanging baskets being put up and we see a report that the Milborne Port in Bloom volunteers have gained some support from Waitrose.

The WI have had a socially distanced committee meeting recently and plan for similar members meeting in August.

The Friends of Milborne Port library are looking forward to the reopening of the Jolly Book Bus in August, and comment on the way that it will operate.

The Climate action group continue their theme on global warming and are also asking for land to enable the planting of more trees.

We understand that at the moment the Village Hall remains closed.

Finally, a plea to all our readers. If you know of other things happening in the village and events restarting, please get in touch so that we can report on these and put them back on the diary.
