School Report

mpps-logoThere are always plenty of things happening at our Primary School. We have picked out the following from the latest newsletter which shows links with the village population outside the school.

On May 24th the PTFA were presented with a cheque for £1,200 from the Blackmore Vale Lions. The PTFA will be using the money to fund additional resources for the playground. This is in addition to a similar amount which the Parish Council gave as a grant a little while ago.

On the evening of July 16th there will be a pop-up restaurant to which the parents of Crackmore class are invited. Mr & Mrs Else from our local chiipy are going to be working with the class on this exciting project.

 

Heritage group plays host to U3A

Heritage LogoThe Milborne Port History & Heritage Group was happy to play host to the Somerton U3A group on Wednesday 23 May.

The WI kindly supplied Coffee and Cake before the guided walk, which explored the older part of the village, south of the A30, before taking a good look at St John's Church. The group then enjoyed a lovely lunch in The Tippling Philosopher, before walking up to the Museum on Wheathill Lane, where they learned about the history of Gloving in Milborne Port.
