Welcome to the website for Milford & Makeney

MMCG LogoThe purpose of this site is to provide useful, important and interesting news, information and insight for residents and visitors, with the hope of enriching the life of the village, and the aim of bringing our community closer together.  Want to be involved?  Help with maintaining the site would be very welcome.  Email webmaster@milford-makeney.org


Milford - Spring 008Spring has truly sprung , and our Webmaster Ashley has been out to capture some images for consideration as the April page of next year’s Milford & Makeney Calendar.  His task was made all the more satisfying due to the planting of the daffodils by Milford in Bloom. Ashley is also keen to produce a website page which will take you on a photo tour around Milford & Makeney, and would welcome your photos.  Click here to see all of Ashley’s spring pics which includes one image showing a vintage London bus.

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.



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.
