MiCO and our young people in the village are planning to put on a ‘Noshtalgia’ event during Food Week in April 2014. However, they are a desperate need of some adult volunteers to help out for a few hours in the preparation.
The concept is for the young and older generations of Milford on Sea to demonstrate recipes of yesteryear. Young MiCO members will be pairing up with older village residents, who will each share a recipe from the past. Then, together each team will cook their dish and explain the family history behind the recipe.
MiCO are looking for anyone of a generous age to share a recipe and to join in the planning and cooking demonstration with a young Milford on Sea person, or for anyone simply willing to help in the organisation and/or as a kitchen assistant on the day.
If you would like to get involved, please contact: Joey Owen, 01590 644961 | 07557 658495 - firstname.lastname@example.org
MiCO (Milford Community Organisation) is a youth led community group set up to promote community cohesion and development, and to bring together diverse sections and ages of the community in Milford on Sea. They provide a forum for people of all ages to come together and discuss issues relevant to village life, and explore ways of promoting positive action to enhance the village community.
As a development of ‘Milford Youth Group’, over the last 3 years MiCO have carried out a number of projects enabling young people to explore what it means to be a young person growing up in Milford, and how young people ‘fit in’ and are seen by other members of the community. More recently we have also worked with people of all ages to explore and record the rich cultural heritage of Milford and Keyhaven.
Their vision is of a village where every member of the community feels valued, and has the confidence and means to have a positive input into village life.
