Mileaters Night Walk

13a
19th November 8.30pm by the Church on the Green was the rendezvous and in the end 12 mileaters made it. It was warm, almost too warm, for the extra layers of clothing we had put on and the exertion we were about to make. Nevertheless, we trod the well-worn path up to the Ridgeway via Groves Hill and the small wood. Familiar but different in the half light of a full moon covered by cloud. 

This small group gathered to hear poems and music and then some silence to enjoy the majesty of the place. A clear sky would have been even more magical.

13b
Weymouth, Portland and perhaps even the Isle of White were in view. It was very quiet, we could hear nothing from all those lives being led just below us nor any animal noises. Just us.

Thanks to Jo and Cathie for the poems and Katie and Peter for the music.

Thank you also to those who shared it.

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.
