Newsletter 10th August 2013

Somewhat of a gap following the last newsletter in June because of holidays, so let us catch up with news and upcoming events in the village.

The conscientious watering of the hanging baskets has kept them in good order despite the massive amount of sun and dry weather we have had recently. This helped show them off well for the judging of our village’s entry in the SW in bloom competition on July 8th.

Also blessed with the good weather this year was the Church fete on July 13th where ices creams sold out in record time. The Church will be holding a fund raising summer BBQ TOMORROW with proceeds in aid of Help for Heros and CRUSE bereavement care.

One Wednesday of this coming week, there will be a meeting regarding community speed watch in the Town hall. This will be led by our new PCSO, Callum Davis. A good opportunity to go and meet him, find out about speed watch and maybe get involved.

It might be summer but the Friends of Milborne Port Library have been busy as usual. You can read about the library activities here.

There is great news about our public toilets which were closed last year. The Commonalty charity are in the process of buying the building and intend to reopen them in due course.

On Saturday 31st August, the bellringers of Milborne Port will attempt a full peal starting at 9am. This will involve non stop ringing for over three hours. We wish them well.

Ever wondered where your eggs come from? A chance to see a working farm and have a fun day out whilst helping to raise funds for charity is being given by Silverthorne Farm on 1st September who are having an open day.

Finally, looking further into September, the Spirit of Milborne Port Michaelmas market will be held on 28th September. Make a note in your diary and watch for further advertising of this event.

Please look around the website and it you want to comment, add some titbits or otherwise contribute, please get in touch.
