STRUTT ARMS LATEST… Our Webmaster has spoken to the building contractors involved to discover that a restaurant will be opening at some point in the future.  No date can be specified as the owners have had to divert resources elsewhere for the moment before refurbishment at the Strutt can recommence.  It can also be revealed that the restaurant will not be an Italian – it was believed that the former owner of Salva’s Trattoria in Duffield had purchased the Strutt – but will offer European cuisine.

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: webmaster@milford-makeney.org
With thanks to the Milford & Makeney Community Group for promoting the establishment of this website and to Ashley Franklin for sponsoring and managing the site.
