Did you know that there are now 9 businesses in place at the RIVERSIDE BUSINESS CENTRE? Read more here. Also, if you live in a house close to the centre, you could earn some money allowing Centre business people to use your car parking space.
Are you a local business who would like to be placed in our website? Just email me your details. An entry in our Business pages is free, though if you would like to place an ad box similar to the one you see on the left, the cost is only £12. For that, your ad will be visible on this Home Page for a whole month, and your £12 will help pay for the maintenance costs of the website.
TELEPHONE BOX… Milford’s old red telephone box is set for a new lease of life – as a public information point. The railings have been moved back and all preparatory work such as cleaning and wire brushing etc., have been completed. Painting inside and out will take place soon. This constitutes Phase One. Phase Two, which is the kiosk’s conversion to a public information point, will be completed later in the year.

In spite of one very heavy shower, the MAY DAY celebrations were a great success with a good turnout along the parade route and plenty pouring in to the May Fair at the school. To see nearly 100 photos from the day, click here.
I just wanted to say a huge thankyou to whoever created the beautiful crocheted flowers, creatures and cobwebs that have decorated the village. The memorial looks superb too – and shows how much as a community we really care. Well done to all involved.
WHAT’S ON THIS WEBSITE
The News & Events box to your left will keep you up to date with what is going on – and coming up! The Menu tabs above open up lots of ‘sub-menus’, extra pages which fall under the main menu headings. For instance, hold your cursor on the Information tab (or the box to the right) and you will see pages which, with one click, will lead you to information about essential and useful resources provided in the village and beyond e.g. schools, shops, pubs, public footpaths, churches, restaurants, residential homes, places to stay, doctors’ surgeries and MP surgeries, bus times and businesses. The Activities tab will reveal all the organisations and interest groups in the village – everything from Maypole Promotions to the Knit Knatter Club. The History tab mines the area’s rich heritage seam and we hope, in time, to make this area of the website a substantial archive. Bear with us! At the moment, the site is not fully developed. We have a lot of information to insert and will be working hard to continually add fresh pages. Which takes us to this… Appeal Please let us know if there any inaccuracies to this website. We would also like to hear from you if you can help in any way to improve the site. Is there some useful information you can add? Maybe you run a business or are part of an activity in the village that we ought to know about? Perhaps you have some reminiscences of Milford and Makeney life along with some old photos? Here is the webmaster’s email address again: email@example.com
