August Update

‘Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.’ (Henry Ford)

The Parish Council is very keen to welcome more councillors into its membership and we encourage as many Milborne Port residents as possible to put themselves forward for this very important role.

Why become a Parish Councillor?
Maybe you are new to the Parish and want to become involved with local matters, or maybe you have lived in the village for all of your life and you are now looking to give something back. To qualify, you must be 18 or over and on the electoral register. The Parish Council is involved in many different activities, from local planning matters, to managing the open spaces and working with our community groups, to delivering projects. If you have time to spare, skills and experience that you could bring to the role and a genuine interest in our village, why not consider putting yourself forward to become a councillor?

Do get in touch to find out more about the process of becoming a councillor by co-option; you do not need to wait for an election! If you would like to talk to us about the councillor role, pop in to see us in the Parish Council Office any Tuesday morning between 8.30 am and 12.30 pm or on a Wednesday by appointment; you can also call us on 01963 251268 or 07375 892631 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. We are also happy to assist with printing off the forms for you and with their completion. The deadline for applications is midday on Tuesday 26th September.

‘What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.’

Our Queen Elizabeth commemorative bench has now been installed in Gascoigne Place! We hope that people will enjoy the opportunity ‘to sit and stare’ by the river and contemplate life for a few moments!

Spruce-Up at Springfield
You might have spotted the new fence at the Village Hall car-park and the newly painted bollards, in addition to the new bin! The new fencing around the play area should be installed in the Autumn.
