Free face masks in the village

The MoS Mutual Aid Group have announced that the New Forest Sewing for the NHS are now making face masks for anyone who would like one.

There is a supply at Milford Pharmacy,and Everton Stores also have some. 

The masks are beautifully made and many of them have an opening where you can add an extra layer. Paper coffee filters work well! (Please be aware that they are not medical masks for use in medical or care situations.) They should be washed at 60 degrees before use and again after each wearing. You can have two face masks.

To show your appreciation you can put a donation in the collecting pot for the NF Basics Bank.


The MoS Mutual Aid Group have been promoting the work of New Forest Sewing for the NHS. In Milford this is being led by the WI and others who have joined up with them. They have been doing an amazing job supplying Southampton and Lymington hospitals with gowns and scrubs, headbands, scrub bags, and knitted hearts. They have also been making face masks for workers, and have now made them for our volunteers as well. 

Can you join the sewing and knitting efforts? Patterns and some material is supplied. If you would like to know more, please contact the organiser, Shelagh on
