Newsletter - April 7th 2014

I do not normally begin a newsletter with a look back, however, I felt that the guitar recital in aid of the Friends of Milborne Port library and the Church was worth a mention. On 22nd March, the Church filled to hear a varied programme of solo guitar played by Michael Partington. Over three hundred years were spanned with works from Domenico Scarlatti to Bryan Johanson. Look out for Michael’s next visit to these shores.

Looking to the rest of April, The Spirit of Milborne Port Spring Market and linked craft market are on the 12th April, with the monthly car boot sale at the school the following day. The Spirit of Milborne Port (SoMP) report on its activities and finances in 2013 is now available. Taking a look at the energy needed to organise the events, SoMP have decided not to hold any future markets but to concentrate on two main events in the year, the summer fete and the Christmas lights switch on.

We now have fuller information about the Parish Council, its activities and Council members. Also the agenda and minutes for their meetings are also posted on the web page. Don’t forget that the annual Parish meeting at which you can hear of council activities and also find out about other village organisations will be held on 22nd April at the town hall.

Later that week sees the performances of Utopia, this year’s production of Gilbert and Sullivan from Milborne Port Opera.

That week is very busy as on Wednesday evening, the 23rd, sees the chance for gardening club members to pick up a bargain at CastleGardens.

At the end of that week on 26th, there is the periodic litter pick starting at the East   Street car park. As we gear up for the South West in Bloom competition, it is a good opportunity to spruce up the lanes of the village.

We have just heard that the Moviola film, scheduled for May has now been postponed and “Saving Mr. Banks” will now be screened at the village hall on 19th June.

Finally, those of you who shop at Sainbury’s will have seen that they are celebrating 15 years at Sherborne with a new canvas bag, with artwork by Gabby, a ten year old pupil at Milborne Port Primary School. Well done Gabby.
