We have updated the Homewatch page to include some new information on Cyber crime - please take a look as the criminals are becoming more and more adept at extracting personal information from even the most cynical and streetwise of us!

 

 

                            


 



 


 

 

Evershot has asked if Melbury would be interested in restarting the annual cricket match.

John Senior has agreed to canvas support for the idea from any players - male, female, young, old with bags of enthusiasm rather than skill. Although any skilled players could be our secret weapon!

Depending on numbers there could be two teams or a single wicket competition.

John believes there is a trophy somewhere so please get in touch with him if you would like to be in our team and bring it home to Melbury Osmond!

coffee morning

Join us for our coffee mornings in the village hall  between 10am till 12 pm  on the first Thursday of the month. There isn't one in January but they start again in February. Drop in on your way to the Post Office to have a chat with old friends and new as all are welcome. You don't have to live in the village to come along.


Boule will re start in the Spring of 2022 subject to the weather. The boule court on the Rec is open to everyone in the village and their visitors. You can play anytime of the day and any day of the week but a few villagers meet for a game at 4 pm on Tuesdays if you would like to join us then. House rules please - no football, no bikes etc only boules on the court and please rake it over after your game.

The Playground

The playground can be used if government guidelines are adhered to- so please follow the link at the top of the page  to see what the current guidelines and regulations are.

In addition please adhere to the advice below to keep you and others safe and remember no dogs allowed in this area.

· Under 14s only to use equipment

· One family member per one child

· Please retain 1 metre distance from other users

· Please bring your own hand sanitiser gel or wipes and use before and after use of the equipment - that is both adults and children please.

· Do not touch face after using equipment

· Consumption of food and drink is not permitted

· Please take litter home

 

Please note that playground equipment is inspected annually by RoSPA with the last inspection carried out May 2021 - some repair/replacement work was needed. That has now (October 2021) been completed with a new frame for the swings, meaning that due to budgets, there is now just one large and one small swing.

If you would like to help us fundraise for these works or make a donation please contact the clerk.
