Newsletter - 28th April 2018

There is lots going on as always in our village in May and we have picked out many of the things extra to the routine, below. We start with a warning, that in the first week of May, part of Gainsborough will be closed to traffic.

The Parish Council annual meeting, where the council elects its chairperson for the year will take place on May 1st. you can see the agenda, minutes of the previous meetings and summaries in the form of our “News from the Council Chamber” on the Parish Council pages.

The Parish Council receives some thanks from the Milborne Port Primary School as they report on a very busy time.

On May 3rd, the bells will again sound to commemorate a soldier lost in the Great War, this time, Thomas Richard Bliss.

Still thinking about the past, the Heritage Museum will begin its summer opening and on 6th May will display “the High Street through the years”. They have also a full programme of talks and walks, with Cadbury Castle being the focus on 21st May.

The WI report on their activities and the upcoming AGM on the 10th of the month.

Saturday 12th May promises to be a busy day, with the gardening club have their plant sale by the weighbridge, after which you can pop to Charlton Horethorne for a ploughman’s lunch with our MP, David Warburton, and then back to Milborne Port for an evening concert at the Village Hall played by the band of HMS Heron (RNAS Yeovilton).

If you have stamina after that, on Sunday evening, the Mill Singers, along with the Braintree male voice choir will be performing in our Parish Church.

Yet another AGM on the 16th May with the Village Hall AGM at the Camelot room of the Village Hall.

The final concert of the month will take place again at the Village Hall when Canadian singer Ian Sherwood will perform there.

Of course, the Village Hall is not all about performance as many clubs and societies meet there including a series of clubs for the younger members of the village with Wiggles & Giggles and youth groups to name but a few.

For people who wish to be active outdoors there are the regular health walks in addition to the heritage walks but as we move towards summer, the cricket club list their early fixtures following their successful jumble sale.

The Friends of Milborne Port Library remain exercised about the library consultation and remind us that it is not too late to have your say.

The diary is available to update you on the regular and one off events in the village. Finally, the May edition of this newsletter would not be complete without reminding everyone of the Milborne Port Fete and Party @ the Port which takes place on Saturday 2nd June.
