Newsletter - August 31st 2017

After a wonderful bank holiday weekend, it is time to look at what is happening in our village in the coming month. We can only pass on information that we have so if you see anything in error or miss something that should be there, please do get in touch. Keeping the diary up to date is a particularly difficult thing!

The last Sunday opening of the season of the Heritage museum will take place on Sunday 3rd September, and the group will be concluding its guided walk series with an intriguing one called “Mayhem and Murder in Milborne Port” on the following day.

The Parish Council will meet on Tuesday 5th September for its monthly full council meeting. The agenda can be found on the Parish Council pages of this website. Also, there can be found various information about the council and how it operates and a monthly report of some of the items discussed, called “news from the council chamber”. This of course supplements the formal minutes.

The village hall will be starting its Moviola screenings starting with “Their Finest” on 15th September. Note that this is a Friday as the village hall has managed to move away from the less popular Saturday evening screenings. As usual, tea, coffee and wine will be available for purchase.

The Moviola film concerns the second world way, but a few days later on 18th September, the Milborne Port bell ringers will again honour two villagers lost in WWI, with a half muffled ring.

On 15th, the regular coffee morning of the WI will be holding a cake sale and raffle in aid of MacMillan cancer support. You can read about this and all the other WI news here.

On the 23rd September at the Village Hall, the “Kings Command Performance” takes centre stage, featuring local talent in a fund raising event.

The summer reading challenge, where 60 children have signed up for our library’s engagement with this national activity has been part of the activities and you can read about this and the financial challenges that the library face in their monthly report.

Taking a look further forward, on 3rd October the National Blood Transfusion Service will be at the village hall for donations of blood.

On 20th October, the first of a series of live concerts in the coming months will feature the Somerton Festival Band. Other forthcoming events will be a return of the New Scorpion Band in December and the Neil Maya quartet in March of next year.

All this in addition to the regular clubs and society events held at various locations, around the village. Have a look at the diary for what’s on.
