Newsletter - 23rd February 2018

Wow, what a busy month in store for us in addition to all the normal clubs, societies and sporting events.

It is not too late to get along to the Village Hall on Friday 2nd March for the Neil Maya concert. You will not be disappointed. The following week, on 9th March, the next Moviola presentation “Breathe” will be shown, also at the Village Hall.

Another performance event will take place on 17th March at the Parish Church when Michael Partington will return.

There are a number of active consultations which will come to an end shortly. On 6th March there will be a chance to attend a pop in session at the Village hall on the future of our library, and the Friends of Milborne Port library comment on this. The consultation on the A303 upgrade closes on March 9th and the boundary commission review will finish on 19th March.

Lent lunches will be held on Fridays during the whole of March; a chance to eat simply, helping the waistline, but more seriously to think about those less fortunate than ourselves.

There will be a newcomer’s event at Church House on March 10th where people new to the village will be able to learn about the village. If you know someone new, please let them know. Those not new to the village will know of the half-muffled ring of the Church bells to commemorate one of the fallen of the first world war. The next such ring will take place on March 21st.

On 24th March, the cricket club will be holding a jumble sale and the heritage group will hold their next meeting on 26th March. Details will appear shortly on the Heritage Group pages.

The WI seem to be having a busy and fun time and the School children will be dressed as their favourite book character on March 1st, world book day.

Of course, regular activities such as the meetings of the Parish Council take place on the 1st Tuesday of the month and you can have a look at items the council mentioned in their regular “News from the Council Chamber”. The council will also be holding an annual parish meeting on April 10th.

Right at the start of April, of course will be the Milborne Port Opera production. Don’t forget to get your tickets.

A busy month indeed. Please keep looking back at the news pages and calendar of the website for things that we may have missed and if you know of other things worth reporting, please get in touch.
