Friends of Milborne Port Library (FOMPL) August 2018 Update

Hello everyone – I have recently taken on the role of Publicity Officer for the Friends of Milborne Port Library. The first thing I would like to say is a huge thankyou to Christine Partington, who has provided the monthly FOMPL report in the Parish Magazine since March 2011. She was also a very strong voice in the opposition to the possible closure of the library back in 2011. Christine continues to be a very active member of the Board of Trustees of the Friends of Milborne Port Library.

On Friday 13 July the library celebrated its 30th Anniversary. Drinks and nibbles were handed out all day by Sue and Edwina and 27 children from the primary school enjoyed a selection of stories read by Sue’s husband Tony. They also enjoyed drinks and lots of biscuits! Photographers from the Blackmore Vale Magazine and the Western Gazette joined us to take some photos. It was great to welcome so many visitors (a total of 117), including past library staff, Janet Horfield and Caroline Woodall.

WI Update for July 2018

WIEarly in July seven of us went to the 'Strawberry Evening' at Horsington.  This is something they host annually to boost their funds and it gives us a chance to socialise with the other WI’s in our Group. An ex-cruise ship singer regaled us with stories of her career.  This was followed by a delicious buffet, finishing with fresh strawberries and cream.   Our next social event with the Stavordale Group is when Wincanton host their annual lunch at Cucklington on the 15th August.  However, this year they will be celebrating their 100 birthday - we have a few years to go yet.

The Spirit of Milborne Port Fete and Party @ The Port 2018






Once again, the June weather was perfect for the day of the village fete. The bunting lent a festive air to the High Street and by 12.30 cars had started arriving and crowds were queuing up at the entrance to the playing fields.

Committee members had been busy all morning placing the stalls around the events arena and setting up the bar and stage in the marquee. Thanks to their hard work and good organisation all facilities were up and running in good time. Our thanks go to everyone who helped and participated in anyway.
