Village Hall update

village hallOver the last 72 hours, the Hall Management Committee (which includes the Trustees) have been considering the guidance being given by HM Government. From the information that was published by Central Government on last Thursday (Maundy Thursday) and Friday (Good Friday), it would be foolhardy for the Management Committee to not keep the halls closed for a further period of time. It is important to note that although the phrase "National Emergency" is being used by some media, Central Government has yet to declare that a "National Emergency" exists. It is, once again, for the Management Committee and Trustees to take on board the guidance being given by Central Government and then to apply that guidance to the operation of the Halls. Unfortunately, the length of time that the recommendations should be applied have not been stated. The Management Committee and Trustees have decided to keep the Halls closed until 3rd May 2020 (another three weeks). This closure will be considered further at the end of April 2020.  If you seek further information then please either send an email to me (using This email address is being protected from spambots.

Heritage group fills in for the lack of talk

Heritage LogoAs we had sadly to postpone Jim Hart's Boundary talk in March which, after having read the transcript, was clearly going to be fascinating, Jim has very kindly written us a piece on 'A Boundary Stone' which elaborates on part of his talk. If you have not seen the stone when you are out enjoying your daily exercise you may come across it. We do hope to reschedule the talk at some point but this, we hope, will be an appetiser for it.

Keep safe and best wishes for a Happy Easter, Lyn and all of the History Group Committee

History and Heritage publish newsletter

Heritage LogoAs we have not been able to hold any meetings we have decided to put together a newsletter for your entertainment and information. We have yet to make a decision on whether we can go ahead with the June meeting with Richard Duckworth, but we do very much hope that this will be possible, we will let you know as soon as a decision is made. Hopefully you will find the newsletter interesting and if you have any ideas and/or items that you think may be of interest please do let us know. It is hoped that we will produce a newsletter two or three times a year, this is a new venture for us and would be glad to receive you comments/suggestion. Look forward to hearing from you and hope that you are all keeping safe and well. 

Milborne Port Climate & Nature Action

We hope you and your loved ones are keeping well. While the coronavirus crisis is impacting all of us and our face to face activities are restricted, we will be doing what we can to play our part in minimizing the health, climate and biodiversity crises and helping our neighbours.

Spring is here and research shows that spending time with nature helps our mental health and wellbeing and as we also depend on biodiversity, helping nature is a doubly great activity in these difficult times and also something to keep young children occupied. Here are some ideas…
