Saddlestones stolen from Milwich Heath.

Dear Watch Member,

Three saddlestones have been stolen from farm premises in Milwich Heath sometime overnight Wednesday 25th/Thursday 26th February.

Offenders cut through a fence post to access the stones and then dragged them through a ditch.

The stones are very heavy and it would have needed a van or pick up truck to take them away.

Although noises were heard at the property at 1am this morning it’s not known exactly what time the theft occurred.

Anyone who can offer any information is asked to contact the police quoting incident number 186 of 26th February.

The latest map of Superfast Broadband installation shows parts of Milwich and Fradswell being enabled by June 2015, the date for Milwich has been brought forward it would appear.

The website for more information is www.superfaststaffordshire.co.uk. Here a map of planned timescales can be seen. Other parts of the parish such as Garshall Green and more outlying parts will not receive Superfast speeds at all unless further funding can be found by the County Council. You can also follow progress on Facebook and Twitter.

For some time the refurbishment of the Milwich Play Area has been discussed. Agreement  in principle has been reached with the Borough Council and ideas, plans and budgets are now being developed.

Now is the time to have your say as to what should or should not be included?

  • What age groups should be able to use the area?
  • What other facilities would you like to see in this space?

The goal is to replace the existing equipment by Summer 2016. So far, £2,500 has been raised to get the project underway but much more is required. A small group, with the support of the Parish Council and Milwich Action Committee, will be further developing the plans and looking to raise the necessary funds by both grant aid, sponsorship and local fundraising. At present we have a clean slate so now is the time to influence the future plans.

A village meeting is planned for 22nd April to enable all residents and interested parties to get involved. More information will follow on the website and in Compass. Watch this space for news of these interesting developments.

If you want to get involved or offer suggestions then please e-mail to play@milwich.com.

We want to hear from you now.
