The following is a list of currently planned events.

Museum at the Chapel

We have been lucky enough to have acquired several new items to display in the Museum these include the three flags of the Milborne Port Scouts which sadly disbanded recently but will be only too happy to hand them back if the Scout group reforms.  We have also been given the Bumblecraft sign, many of you will remember the shop in Milborne Port, plus an album of photographs relating to items that were made locally!

We opened the Chapel on Easter Sunday for the first time and are looking forward to the rest of the season

We will be open as a 'one- off'again on Sunday 6th May and then from Sunday 27th May we will be open every Sunday afternoon between 2.30 - 4 pm.

There wlll be a series of displays which will include:

Schooldays

The High Street

The Local Railway.

If you have any photos etc that you think may be of interest and would be happy to lend them to us for our exhibitions please do contact us on either This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or any committee member.

ORAL HISTORY

We are currently compiling an oral history of the village and already have several villagers who are prepared to participate in this very important work.

We feel that if we don't record memories now they will be lost and this shouldn't be allowed to happen.
