Newsletter – 30th November 2018

As we approach the festive season, a round up of news from and events in the village. It does feel a little like “end of term” as we bring the year to a close. Talking of end of term, the Primary school will start its Christmas holidays after 21st December.

The website administration still struggles for support in managing the site; it you would like to help, please get in touch. Also many people forget the website as a channel of communication, so if you are sending articles to the Milborne Port Magazine, please do not forget us. We are grateful to Linda for keeping us abreast of things we may have missed. We also note that the magazine editor is looking for photographs of the village to adorn future magazines.

After a considerable amount of planning and a number of false starts, the Springfield Road car park (Village Hall) will be closed from 3rd December to allow car park safety lighting to be installed. Hopefully it will be open again in time for the last Moviola of the year, “The Happy Prince”.

There is a considerable amount of news from the Parish Council. In addition to their monthly “News from the Council Chamber”, there has been an election for a further Parish Council vacancy which has been filled by Austin Fletcher. Also on Council news, the District Council have approved the planning application for new houses on the junction of Wheathill lane and Springfield Road. The spirit of Christmas has affected the council office also as it will be closed from 21st December, reopening on 4th January.

The Friends of Milborne Port library discuss the future of the library and the WI prepare for Christmas.

There are articles from the History and Heritage group and Spirit of Milborne Port as well as one from Robin Bawtree. These discuss a variety of matters, but all mention the recent armistice commemoration.

Other articles and diary entries mention Art classes organised by Artslink, supporting carers of young children and those experiencing memory loss.

Finally, the Sports and Social Club will have live music on 21st of the month

Please browse the website articles and diary for anything that is there which we have not caught in this brief review. As ever, there is much going on in our village.
