Newsletter - 22nd December 2018

{Play}An “end of term” and “new beginnings” feel to the newsletter this month. Of course the Primary School has already broken up and will start again on 7th January. New beginnings also refers to the 2019 programmes being announced to several groups in the village which we will mention later.

{Play}As people make their final preparations for Christmas, we thought it worth mentioning a couple of the special services at our Parish Church. This coming Sunday there will be a carol service at 6pm and midnight mass at 11:30pm on Christmas eve.

After Christmas, we will all need to set to clearing up and the revised waste collection and opportunity for Christmas tree recycling are mentioned on the news page.

You may have already read in the “news from the council chamber” that the Parish Council is working with Friends of Milborne Port Library and Somerset County Council to see if a community library partnership, essentially funded by the village through Parish Council rates, is viable. The Friends consider this in their monthly news but also will be holding an extraordinary meeting on 2nd January.

The gardening club look to have a varied programme throughout the year, starting with a talk on garden design on January 8th. The WI have their first meeting on 10th January on travels in Vietnam as a part of their varied annual programme.

Not to be outdone, the History and Heritage group will hold their first meeting on 21st January at Church House. Spirit of Milborne Port will be following up their successful lights switch on and are already planning for next year’s fete.

We have mentioned before, an art for parents class which is taking place in the Village hall, and we have just heard that the school will be holding a taster session for that on 10th January at the school.

Moviola starts its new year programme with “Mamma Mia, here we go again” on 18th January at the village hall, whilst the village hall will play host to the public hearing of the planning appeal regarding a proposal to build over 50 houses on Station Road on January 22nd.

Of course many of the regular clubs will have taken a back seat as we run up to Christmas and new year, however, you can refresh your memory on these by looking at the diary. As ever, if we have missed anything, do get in touch.
