image0With the lock down restrictions eased enabling organised groups to meet up outside for exercise, a walk around the south side of Portland was planned for the Mileaters. The walk was carefully chosen to ensure there were no stiles or gates so that the 2 metre social distancing rule could be observed and the wide pathways in Portland were ideal.  What was not ideal was some paths were a bit muddy but the hardy bunch of walkers were not going to let this spoil things.

Twenty or so set of from the car park near Easton which we discovered was where in 1803 the massacre of Easton took place. Three people from the village were shot and killed when they tried to stop the press gang taking men to go to sea.

As we set off through the mist we thought that the walk was going to be uneventful but we were treated to sunshine emerging from the gloom of the fog making fascinating effects over the sea, truly atmospheric.

We headed south towards the lighthouse where we had a coffee stop before following the coast path to Weston and back towards the cars. 

Unfortunately there was no after walk lunch at a pub but we all felt relieved to be able to meet and catch up with friends and for a brief moment life appeared to be normal again.

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.

  • Please leave your containers at the kerbside

  • Please do not overfill your containers so that they are too heavy for our collection crews to move and lift safely
