A Special Evening for Newcomers

The village ‘Newcomers Supper’ took place last Saturday (20th Feb 2016) in All Saints Church and Church Hall in Milford on Sea. 

All Newcomers to the village in 2015 were invited to this 'two part' welcome event. Around eighty people attended and received a warm welcome to their new home. The village is full of friendly people and the ‘Newcomers Supper’ is a fast-track way of getting to know a lot about our village life.

From around 6pm there was a ‘Mini Exhibition’ held inside All Saints' Church itself, where our new neighbours wandered around and informally meet representatives from the many clubs, associations & organisations in the village. 

The ‘Mini Exhibition’was then followed by a free sit down supper with the chance to meet other new people to the village and a variety of village people. (That's residents, not the old pop group!)

This special annual evening was yet another success, with lots of fun and laughter, all of which ended in a communal rendition of the 'Milford Village song'. (Yes, there really is one!)

Ruth said: "I would like to thank everyone involved with the Newcomers Supper. The Exhibitors, the cooks, the kitchen workers, the Entertainers and best of all ‘the Newcomers’. You came - so we enjoyed showing you what a great village you have moved into. No excuse now to ever be bored, lonely or fed up. Join in with village activities, walk the Coast or the Dane stream, get involved with conserving this lovely village, use our shops and help to keep Milford on Sea a great place to live!  - Thank you so much everyone for helping to make this years Newcomers Supper such a success."

The ‘Newcomers Supper’ is funded & hosted by all of the churches in the village & tirelessly organised by Ruth Bufton and her team of enthusiastic volunteers.
