Can you help keep the new Milford Minibus safe?

The Milford Minibus is becoming a reality and it is hoped it will be up and running very soon.

 

A place is needed to park the minbus to ensure that it is safe. In addition, volunteers are needed to help manage the bus, tutor the drivers and to take bookings.

 

If you have a spare garage or a barn that could be used, or if you have some free time to spare, please do get in touch.

 

The aim is to help people in our local community access events, services and organisations and get them home safely afterwards.

 

If you have a secure parking area or can volunteer some time to help with this wonderful community asset, please email Lisa at: milfordminibus@gmail.com

Milford Library future – have your say

Hampshire County Council is consulting on proposals to withdraw all funding from Milford-on-Sea’s library.  Although the library is run and managed by volunteers, the County Council provides the books and the IT systems to link the library into the county network.

In order to achieve budgetary savings, the County Council is proposing to withdraw all its funding support.  Please take part in the consultation process and let the County council know your views.

Milford is now more Magical this Christmas!

Tracy Haupt and Diana Brushwood would like to thank everybody who enabled their vision to come to fruition. After months of planning and fundraising, they have not only decorated the village green, but also the centre of the village itself.

A special mention must go to The South Lawn Hotel, who sponsored all the children’s trees on the green. These are all root ball trees and will be planted in the hotel’s grounds in January. Also to The Milford Floral Art Club who sourced a number of old bicycle wheels and then turned then into the most beautiful Christmas wreaths for both sides of the bridge. The W.I and U3A Craft Groups helped enormously with huge quantities of cones, Vera Burch made all the laminated signs for the trees and The Guides dismantled pallets to create wooden Christmas trees. Milford Pre-School made the hessian bunting, IWYK provided a P.A system and of course recognition has to go to ATECH Electrical who provided all the cabling and installation.

There are too many residents to individually name, who stepped forward to help Tracy and Di with an array of tasks, but a mention must go to Sue Crabb; Chairman of Milford Gardening Club who designed the decorations for the bollards alongside the green, a number of W.I ladies who produced Christmas wreaths for the lampposts and Tracy’s husband; Colin, who created all garlands for the canopy poles and benches. Also Cllr Donald Darbishire and his team for erecting the traders’ trees.  Finally, thanks to Simeon and his team from Keyhaven Farm, who erected the main Christmas tree.

And finally a huge thank you to all the businesses, Parish Council and community who gave so generously to the JustGiving Fundraising page and other collection points. The project could never have been delivered, without their support.

Thanks so much, Tracy & Di
