Newsletter - 25th February 2019

Being a short month, February has raced to its close almost before the dust has settled on the February newsletter, but here is a summary of what we have learned about village life in March and beyond.

To kick off, Church House will be holding its AGM on 4th March, and it will be home to the Lent lunches from 13th of the month and a supper and Lent course during the period of Lent. In addition, of course there will be the normal Church House activities of Pilates, brownies, toddlers and the like, not forgetting the ever popular Tuesday Luncheon Club.

The gardening club report on an increase in membership and detail some of their events for 2019 including a members only private shopping trip to Castle Gardens on March 12.

Meanwhile, the WI celebrated Valentine’s day with a fun evening and are looking forward to their annual dinner at Church house on March 14th.

A day after, on March 15th will see the Moviola screening of the Oscar winning “Bohemian Rhapsody”. Visual and musical entertainment is not limited, however, to Moviola as on 8th March, the sports and social club will host “The Badger Boys”, the first of a number of events in March.

If classical works are more to your taste then earlier in the day on March 8th, there will be one of the series of Organ recitals at the English Organ School, given by Margaret Phillips. Later in the month (22nd), the school will play host to the well known viol consort, Fretwork.

On the business side of the village, the Parish Council have their “News from the Council Chamber” and are also wishing to promote interest in the upcoming Parish and District Council elections in May. Elections were last held in 2015, though for the Parish Council, there was no ballot as too few candidates stood, and the Parish Council are hoping for greater interest this year.

Looking further ahead, April will see this year’s performances by Milborne Port opera of “Anything Goes” and there will be the spring litter pick and the Annual Parish meeting at the Town Hall.
