WI Ladies visit Portland Bill Lighthouse...

Lighthouse tour 2017 m

The sun was out as 10 WI ladies left the Village for a trip too Portland lighthouse. But wait why was there a space in the car? Oops we forgot Marion! Quickly turning round at Upwey we dashed back to collect poor Marion still waiting patiently to be picked up.

Lighthouse tour 2017 g

Start again , on a beautiful sunny morning 11 ladies left the village on the trip to the lighthouse. 9 ventured all the way to the top 153 steps in all , worth it for the view from the top . Our guide was really good ( a WI member from another village) . On return to ground level we were all awarded a badge to say we had made it too the top.

From there we headed into Portland for a quick browse of the charity shops and a very good lunch in the sugar loaf cafe.

Waste Watch Scheme
- operating in the village.

Although papers can be separated and recycled with the bi-weekly refuse collection this scheme means that the local parish can financially benefit from separate treatment of newspapers.

There are two collection points each located at the Parish Office and the car park of the Village Hall by means of a green bin or box.

Your used newspapers and magazines can be bundled into manageable piles and securely tied with sturdy string. Newspapers and magazines should be bundled separately but can be placed in the same boxes and are regularly collected.

Please use this method of recycling where possible as credit is received via the current scheme to the parish for use towards local matters.
