Martinstown Mileaters - “Spring’s around the corner”

Moreton 2
A small, but select band of Mileaters, dogs and a guest walker enjoyed a very enjoyable 5 1/2 mile walk through the heathland area north of Moreton. Despite a gloomy forecast the weather was particularly kind - quite mild and NO RAIN!

The walk started at the Culpepper Dish car park just south of Briantspuddle and proceeded through to Moreton Church, where we had a pleasant coffee break amongst the beautiful daffodils and snowdrops. Of course, the Whistler windows in the church are worth a look and a number of our party took the opportunity to go into the church.

Moreton 1
The walk back took us, for a while, alongside the tank training grounds, where there was considerable activity, with heavy tanks thundering by. Most of us had moments of reflection, considering the terrible trauma being inflicted in Ukraine by similar weaponry used by the Russians.

Those thoughts were undoubtedly still with us as we made our way back to the car park.

We did manage, however, to have a very nice lunch at the Blue Vinny pub at Puddle town

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.
