Happy Birthday to us!

We launched our first Milford on Sea village website on 20th May 2008, so it is now eleven year old & and I don't look a day older!

From day one we have always loved our independence, and as we take no revenue from anyone this means we can say & do exactly what we like!

Milford on Sea Website: When we decided to create our first village website, it was purely as a hobby and to provide some more local information about the village. The site is pretty dated in style nowadays, but it still serves a purpose. 

To date: has had 1,915,000 visitors. We are also averaging around 250 visits to the website every day.

Milford on Sea News: We are now on No.473 of our weekly News Blog which keeps people informed of village stories. Some are factual, other embellished, and others simply made up!

To date there have been 1,317,780 page views, and an average of around 19,000 page views per month - and it seems most people choose to come back!

Milford on Sea Calendar: This website details anything we hear about that is happening in the village, plus things that may be of interest nearby. The calendar also contains sections of 'Clubs & Classes', and 'Church Services'.

Connecting the Village: We have 1,847 local people who regularly receive our e-mail News Bulletins, and know of some people who don't want it at all! (Milford on Sea's total village population is circa 5000)

We never really considered that people would enjoy what we built, however it is satisfying to provide a service to the local community which a number of people seem to enjoy.

We are always looking for more village people to join us (That's people who live in the village, not the YMCA pop band!), so if you can spread the word to any friends, family or neighbours who you think would like to get our newsletter, please ask them to complete the form here: We can then ensure all of our community are kept informed of local news, which on some occasions contain actual facts!

Thanks for your support and for as long as you keep reading, I’ll keep writing!

  2. Thank you David, your efforts are much appreciated.

  3. I try not to take your brilliant Newsletter for granted, David. I always read it - and say 'Cheers' to you when I happen to have a glass in my hand (which is not unusual!). Thanks isn't enough really as there's so much hard work involved and it's such a 'good read'. Chin-chin!!

  4. Glad you enjoy reading it. I have to have a glass in my hand when I write it!
