Oh deer, oh deer the WI of Martinstown caught snogging!

3rc deer trip

On a glorious sunny Dorset morning in May  a group of WI ladies set of for the deer rescue centre at Crewkerne . What a fabulous morning we had meeting and feeding several species of deer. Some with very traumatic stories like the little deer who was savaged by a dog and survived, another whose mother was chased over the cliff by dogs and left as an orphaned fawn.

3z deer trip

Thanks to the dedication of Mike and the centres staff many deer now live a happy and a safe life on his land. Some are very people friendly as we found out walking amongst them  and one or two who liked to have a biscuit from your mouth.

3pb deer trip

We had a go at holding a set of antlers and realised just how strong the deer need to be to hold their head carrying such a weight.

3za deer trip

On leaving the deer rescue centre we went to the craft centre at Broadwindsor for a well earned lunch which we were certainly ready for.

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.
