Mileaters’ Walk - March 22nd 2022

March 22
Having scoured West Dorset to find a car park that would accommodate the large number of cars needed for recent Mileaters’ walks, in the event our numbers were reduced to eleven humans and four dogs,  by a combination of the plague, family commitments, retirement  ( for the second time), and foreign adventures. 

In glorious sunshine and a welcome gentle breeze we set off from the Black Dog pub in Broadmayne.  Our six mile walk took us over wide gently undulating fields brimming with early rape, big skies. Not dramatic but peaceful, calming.  Having crossed  the gallops at Whitcombe and glimpsed Came House, a fine mid eighteenth manor house, we took refreshments in a chalk quarry before moving on to Whitcombe, a charming hamlet with a church that has fragments of medieval wall paintings, including unusually one of a mermaid combing her hair. Then back to Broadmayne via West Knighton and a welcome lunch outside where we were joined by Gerald, a beer already in his hand.

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.
