Carols on the Green 2009 Remembered

Sadly, Milford on Sea Carols on the Green could not take place this year, but I have come across an old article from Carols on the Green in 2009. 

These were strange times when people could actually meet up in large crowds and enjoy each others company!

Hopefully the story will evoke some memories and even provide a smile or two.

Here is the old article from 2009:

Not a great start to the day in Milford on Sea, torrential rain in the morning, followed by an afternoon of horizontal stair rods. Thankfully, the evening changed miraculously to a dry crisp winters night. So, around 6pm we set off for the Village Christmas Fayre & Carol Singing Concert. As we approached the village centre we could already hear the sound of merriment, with Christmas music & lively voices. To start our evening we made our way to Monk Fishmongers, soon to discover that they had a new name, ‘Verveine’, on the front window (Verveine is of course a citrus herb. Yes, OK, Stacey had to tell me what it meant!). The new name is part of the rebranding for the new restaurant which is due to open early next year. As soon as we went in we were offered mussels by Dave, followed by a taste of a chocolate & fig compote, which was excellent. Next we popped into Inger-Lise’s & were forced to try some traditional Norwegian biscuits, of course we did not refuse. 

Things were going well, so onto the opening night of the Landfall Gallery. Now we know the new art gallery contained mince pies, but the thronging crowd inside prevented us reaching Sally’s generous offering. I suppose I have to be honest at this point, & explain that when I say ‘we’ in respect of food, my wife is normally a spectator as her body is a temple, mines more of a waste bin. I nobly tasted everything on behalf of us both. (I know, she is so lucky to have someone so caring.) Now off to the centre of the High Street, on the way admiring the Christmas decorations in DJ Gregory’s Butchers & the impressive nativity scenes created in Ellis’s Hairdressers window. Feeling peckish we (I) spotted that Dave Gates was providing Hog Roast Baps & Sausages in Rolls for a charity donation. It just seemed my duty to help the charity. My wife opted for a bag of chips, & of course I would do anything to keep her happy, whatever the expense.

As we wandered with food in hand towards the now thronging High Street, I helped out by testing her chips, & I can confirm that Mr Pink’s had done a good job. ‘Um, those chips have made me really full up’(?!!) my wife exclaimed, just before bumping into someone she knew. I picked her startled friend up & they started chatting. Whilst I pretended to be interested in their conversation, (you know what I mean guys), I concocted a plan to get myself another Sausage in a Roll. Without a moment’s hesitation, I checked they weren’t looking & then made a quick turn, rushed up Church Hill, and I was back near Dave Gates Butchers Shop. However, I then thought it might appear strange to be back so soon for another one. So, I put on my glasses to act as an effective disguise. As I reached the front of the queue I spotted Dave now had a turkey on his head! I soon worked out that it was actually a turkey shaped hat & not a real one, but I was now perplexed as to whether not only had he seen through my clever disguise, but also whether he thought his disguise would make me think he had a twin brother? I am not sure how a simple evening becomes so complex, but for us it is normal. A second sausage in roll was soon devoured, so I now had to get back without being missed. Luckily, I am good at plans. 

So, I went to the cake stall outside of Boots. A moment later I was the proud owner of two slices of millionaire shortbread & a cup cake. To give me energy for the journey to rejoin my wife outside of Piccolo Mondo I ate the cup cake. Her conversation over, I rejoined my wife & explained how a large surge in the crowd has involuntarily dragged me off & I had laid unconscious for several minutes before being taken to the St. Johns Ambulance tent, where they revived me. To make the story more convincing, I then explained how on the way back, I had fought the pain to buy her two slices of her favourite millionaires shortbread. In her usual caring way she playfully hit me really hard around my head, clearly stating that there was no St. Johns Ambulance tent (whoops, should have checked), that I still had tomato sauce on my chin, and that millionaires shortbread was a favourite of mine, not hers.

To make peace, I offered to show her a penguin, Father Christmas & an elf. How could any girl resist. So, our next destination was Ashton Estate Agents with Santa’s Grotto. I thought it might be best not to stop for a crepe at Christina’s Bon Appetite, or at the mulled wine stall at this stage. At Ashtons, Sarah & Isobel were dressed as Santa’s little helpers & the elf looked very similar to Nick, the guy from the Co-op. For some reason there was an under 50 age limit for sitting on Santa’s knee, so I couldn’t have a go, so we left. Outside I was attacked by the penguin, & all I could hear was Lesley for Sullivan Mitchells muttering something intelligible from inside her fur costume. The Village Coffee Shop stood aglow across the road with its colourful Christmas display and the Red Lion seemed welcoming, full of happy diners & even happier drinkers. "Shall we...?" "No we won’t, the carols are starting now", my wife explained with grace & a punch in my rib cage. Wasn’t thirsty anyway, I said to her, carefully just out of earshot.

The Lymington Town Band then fired up against the backdrop of the giant lighted Christmas tree on the green, we (I) quickly grabbed a bag of roasted chestnuts from the barbeque manned by Rob from the Bay Trees. We then bought our carol song sheet from a man in a funny Christmas hat. Moments later we were in a happy crowd humming & miming. Unfortunately, so was everyone else, so the first carol just had a mumbled accompaniment to the band. Not for long though. As the carols progressed, the significant crowd found its voice & soon everyone was joining in without a care in the world. My wife was even impressed that I knew the third verse to ‘O come all ye faithful’ without the song sheet. It is nice to be her hero sometimes. The atmosphere was genuinely delightful, & to feel the community spirit was special. 

At the close of the carols Reverend Eric Parker was presented with a memento for his retirement by the organising committee. Eric has led the Carol Singing for the past nine years. To round off the evening Father Christmas arrived on his sleigh, (from the North Pole apparently, which I understand is connected to Lymington Rotary Club), he was soon swamped with local children as he handed out sweets to eager hands. Now, I am not one for all of the hysteria around Christmas time, but to see delight on children’s faces genuinely made our night. A big round of thanks goes to Ray Sales & his team of little helpers at the Village Community Committee, plus all of the local shopkeepers, who did a great job for us all. Thanks everybody!

Thank You From Olivia Inspires

A message and thank you from Olivia Inspires 

We know what a difficult year 2020 has been for everyone and at this time of giving, it seems only right to say a huge “Thank You!” to all those who have selflessly fundraised, donated, supported and encouraged us throughout the year. 

Olivia's charity has been going little more than a year and the pandemic has made 2020 very different from what we expected. Let's hope that, in the words of Captain Tom, "tomorrow will be a good day". 

A Merry and safe Christmas to you all!

Santa & his Elves Visit Milford on Sea Primary School

Milford on Sea Primary School send their thanks to Jason, Kim and the team at Collins and Butler who generously donated over 300 selection boxes for all of the children.  

Thanks to their generosity, Santa, together with Santa's twin brother (!), Mrs Claus and his elf were able to visit the children at the school and presented them all with a gift for Christmas. 

Unable to have their annual Christmas Fair where Santa's Grotto is a regular fixture, Santa made his way from The North Pole to visit the children in their classrooms instead! 

Of course this wouldn't have been possible without the help and support of Collins and Butler.

Pennyfarthing Homes spreads Christmas cheer

New Forest based property developer, Pennyfarthing Homes have pledged its support to Milford-on-Sea during this challenging year by donating £1,600 to the community, helping to bring some Christmas cheer this season. 

At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Pennyfarthing Homes donated £500 to Milford-on-Sea Primary School, to use towards a new marquee, to offer extra space for class bubbles and give children an extra outdoor area in bad weather. 

In addition, Pennyfarthing Homes also donated £260 to the school’s Parents Association, allowing a new Xbox console to be included as the main prize in the Christmas raffle. It is very satisfying to hear that Milford-on-Sea Primary School raised a fantastic £3,101 as a result of all the prizes in their Christmas Raffle.

Deborah Cummings, School Business Manager, said: “We’re delighted that Pennyfarthing Homes wanted to support the children of Milford-on-Sea Primary School. We have not been able to hold our usual fundraising events in recent times, so these generous donations have made a huge difference.” 

Beyond the school, Pennyfarthing Homes has also sponsored the dazzling Christmas lights display at the Milford-on-Sea village green. 

In 2019, a Just Giving page was set up by locals Diana Brushwood and Tracy Haupt in the hope of raising money for decorations in the village. This year, Pennyfarthing Homes pledged £840, which has allowed for eight trees to be illuminated with commercial-grade LED lights. Each of the trees represents the following: Milford-on-Sea Primary School, Milford Pre-school, Milford Explorers Day Nursery, Guides, Brownies, Cubs and Scouts, Milford-on-Sea Youth Football Club, and the four churches in the village. 

Diana Brushwood commented: “Huge thanks to Pennyfarthing Homes for the donation for the Milford-on-Sea Christmas lights. Last year, we used battery powered lights which were rather dim but this year, the trees look spectacular!” 

Sheetal Smith, Sales and Marketing Director at Pennyfarthing Homes, added: “At Pennyfarthing Homes, we are passionate about giving back to the communities in which we build. We’re pleased to be able to spread some festive cheer this year and bring some sparkle to both the Primary School and the village green in Milford-on-Sea.” 

The Swifts is Pennyfarthing Homes’ collection of 42 three and four-bedroom homes in Milford-on-Sea. There are just a few homes remaining at The Swifts. For more information or to book a private viewing, visit www.pennyfarthinghomes.co.uk/site/swifts-milford-on-sea or call 01590 615411.

Behind the Christmas Decorations

The delightful Christmas Decorations on Milford on Sea Village Green and around the centre of the village are making many people happy as Christmas approaches. The creative and sparkling decorations took a lot of planning and hard work from a dedicated team of volunteers, and we are pleased to let you know some of the people behind the project and to share this message from the organisers Diana & Tracy: 

On Friday and Saturday, 4th and 5th December, Diana Brushwood and Tracy Haupt and their husbands; Paul and Colin, took on the task of decorating the village for Christmas. The weather however, had other ideas, as they got very cold and wet. 

Despite the troubled times we’ve all experienced this year and after many meetings outdoors, Tracy and Diana were able to coordinate many talented volunteers to help to add several new features to the displays this year. 

The nativity scene was cut out of plywood by the New Milton Men’s Shed and then painted by our local Milford Art Club artist Gillian Key. Gillian, along with Art Club members Richard Wadley and Yvette Binns, painted Christmas card scenes that are attached to The Smugglers fence. Gillian also made the Father Christmas sleeves for the bollards and Pam Wright made the snow scenes for the post box, phone box and litter bin tops. What a talented group of people! 

The Milford Floral Art Club did an excellent job again and this year added battery lights to the recycled bicycle wheels on the bridge. 

Fundraising was always going to be tricky this year, however the response from the village was amazing. 

Diana and Tracy are very grateful for the sponsorship received and would like to thank RoyaleLife who purchased the forest of trees and will plant them in various locations in January. 

Gen One Ltd paid for the main Christmas tree and excavated and laid the ducting under the green, free of charge, so we could connect the lights safely. 

Pennyfarthing Homes gave a generous donation that enabled us to afford the commercial quality LED lights for the forest of trees, to create a brighter display.

Many organisations and individuals came together to make Milford even more Magical this year. 

Diana and Tracy, organisers of 'Making Milford more Magical' would like to thank every single one of them for helping to achieve their vision.

PS: We have created a Village Photo Album, if you would like to add any more pictures of the village Christmas Decorations please just send them by clicking here.

Socially distanced Santa Dash

Some early Santas bemused and delighted passers by in Milford on Sea yesterday, Thursday 10th December, as they started a "Santa Dash" on our village green.

They usually participate in the Oakhaven Santa Dash down Lymington High Street but of course for safety reasons the event couldn't take place this year. 

So Janet Nunn, Susan Evans and Rosalie Mans "dashed" from the village green, down Sea Road and along the Sea Front arriving back in the village with £171 in their collection box. More donations have been collected by WI President, Diana Cobbett.

They got a bit of a surprise when three Santas from the Oakhaven Fund Raising Team surprised our by jumped out from The Needles Eye Café to join them for a photo (below). Naturally at Christmas, you can't have too many Santas!

Many thanks to all those who made donations.

PS: The two of the boards outside The Smugglers (one in the picture below), the large Nativity figures on the village green, and the jolly Santas on bollards by the parking bays were created by talented village artist, Gillian Key. Gillian also supplies our Village Charity Shop with humorous and festive cards.

More Milford Santas!

Sharon Twydell ad Graham Wiffen also did a Santa Dash around Milford on Sea village in support of Oakhaven Hospice.

They were also grateful to all those who have supported them over the last couple of weeks and to all those who waved, clapped and hooted us as they did the run.

So far hey have raised nearly £300, and if you'd like to support Oakhaven, here the link to an earlier Facebook post by Graham: please click here.

Here's a a couple of snaps from their run:

New Village Bakery opens on 18th December

I don't know about you, but I'm pretty excited to be having a new bakery opening in Milford on Sea village. Fresh bread, rolls, cakes and savouries - and even afternoon tea's, what's not to like!

Local resident, Amanda Maidment, is very excited to be starting her new venture, and The Coastal Bakery will be opening at 9am on Friday 18th December.

Amanda is delighted that the shop is being beautifully decorated with free foliage by the very talented Hannah Middlewick.

The Coastal Bakery will be on the corner of the High Street in the shop occupied by Time & Tide Fashions, who are moving to where Moss on the Green were in Church Hill, Milford on Sea.

During the height of lockdown Amanda's, The Little Cake Company provided and delivered delicious homemade cakes from her home and she even offered a special cream tea for VE Day.

Fresh bread, rolls, cakes and savoury treats from a specialist bakery, - at least in this difficult times we all have something good to look forward to!
