Newsletter -26th January 2019

As we move into February with the nights starting to become lighter and thoughts maybe turning to spring, the signs of fresh shoots of activity in the village pervade this brief summary.

First a look back; many will be interested in the planning appeal recently conducted and we have a short report of this here to begin this newsletter.

The Parish Council have their usual brief report on the Parish Council website which mentions the work to save the library and this is expanded upon in the Friends of Milborne Port Library article.

The Sports and Social Club will be having their members party on 9th February and a bingo evening is planned for 28th.

Artslink report that they are continuing to run their popular “Art for Parents” session in the village hall on a Thursday morning, but their other venture, art for memory has moved to Sherborne.

The history and heritage group report on their upcoming activities and their next meeting is on 18th February at Church House. The WI also report on their recent and forthcoming activities including their next meeting on 14th February.

A few days before that, the next presentation in the Moviola series, “The Children Act”, with the incomparable EmmaThompson will be shown at the village hall on 15th February.

The Parish Council have placed a notice on this site about how it will decide on the use to which a donation from Canadian Solar will be used and are seeking ideas.

There are a couple of forward notices; the bellringers will be holding a peal attempt in early March, and the Spirit of Milborne Port announce plans and are seeking help for the fete this year. Milborne Port Opera are also looking to their performance of “Anything Goes” in April.

Other notices seeking help are the Royal British Legion, who’s local branch is seeking a new secretary, and the Primary School seeking a new Governor.

As ever, if you have some news of village events or would like to make comment, please get in touch.
