Milford lights up for a Magical Christmas

Tracy Haupt and Diana Brushwood would like to thank everybody who enabled their vision for a Magical Christmas for Milford on Sea to come to fruition. After months of planning and fundraising, they have not only decorated the village green, but also the centre of the village itself.

A special mention must go to The South Lawn Hotel, who sponsored all the children’s trees on the green. These are all root ball trees and will be planted in the hotel’s grounds in January. Also to The Milford Floral Art Club who sourced a number of old bicycle wheels and then turned then into the most beautiful Christmas wreaths for both sides of the bridge. The W.I and U3A Craft Groups helped enormously with huge quantities of cones, Vera Burch made all the laminated signs for the trees and The Guides dismantled pallets to create wooden Christmas trees. Milford Pre-School made the hessian bunting, IWYK provided a P.A system and of course recognition has to go to ATECH Electrical who provided all the cabling and installation.

There are too many residents to individually name, who stepped forward to help Tracy and Di with an array of tasks, but a mention must go to Sue Crabb; Chairman of Milford Gardening Club who designed the decorations for the bollards alongside the green, a number of W.I ladies who produced Christmas wreaths for the lampposts and Tracy’s husband; Colin, who created all garlands for the canopy poles and benches. Finally, thanks to Simeon and his team from Keyhaven Farm, who erected the main Christmas tree. 

And finally a huge thank you to all the businesses and local residents throughout of the community who gave so generously to the JustGiving Fundraising page and other collection points. The project could never have been delivered, without their support.

Enjoy a Magical Christmas everyone!
