Milwich W I Report

There were many surprises when Ruth Williams came to Milwich W I to tell us the many Gems to be found in Staffordshire. Ruth bought herself a simple camera having tried to use a more complicated one left to her by her late husband, and has used it in the best conceivable way.

The slides were amazing, showing members over forty areas of interest – historic and naturalist. Ruth started in the South of the County and finished in the North, featuring Churches, Graveyards, cemeteries, Canals, Rivers, Meadows, Marshes, Museums and a number of famous faces from the past to the present. The cuckoo can still be heard at Mottey Meadows and Kingfishers seen at Wolseley Centre. Well dressing can also be seen at Endon, Newborough and Croxton with Morris Men performing at Abbots Bromley. Staffordshire is definitely an interesting and beautiful county.

The Annual Meeting takes place on May 10th when Members will welcome the County President, Helen Mancy.

Milwich & District Produce Guild

Our March speaker, Ruth Williams, gave a fascinating talk, with slides, on “The Hidden Gems of Staffordshire”.  She covered the whole area, from the Roaches to Kinver, highlighting places many of us knew nothing about.

On June 22nd, we welcome Ron Rock, who will talk on “A Garden Fit For Bees”.  We all know how much the bee population is struggling, and this talk should interest most of our members.

Our July meeting will be a visit to Sugnall Walled Garden- travel details later.

Our meetings are usually held on the fourth Thursday of the month, at All Saints’ Village Hall, starting at 8pm.  For further information, please contact Mike Baggaley on 01889 270161 or m_baggaley@btinternet.com

Pre-School Newsletter

Firstly Milwich Pre-School would like to apologise for their error in grammar/spelling that was pointed out by ‘The Grumpy Old Man’ (his words not ours) in the last edition of the Compass. After working a 10 hour day, with children as young as 2 years old, and all staff having our their own families to care for on top of that, we hope you understand that sometimes mistakes creep in. Normally the editor of the Compass picks these errors up and corrects them for us, and we thank them for that, but we would presume he also has other commitments in his own time, and is also only human and this one “slipped through the net” as they say. So please accept our heartfelt apologises.

This half term we are looking at numbers and how we use numbers in our daily routine. We will also be looking at different mathematical vocabulary. We have lots of activities planned form measuring sand to weighing ingredients for baking. This half term our role play will be changed each week from shops with tills, to cafes with menus, all helping with our number skills.

Milwich Pre-school is now open 5 days a week (subject to numbers), Monday – Friday. Sessions are 9:00am – 1:30pm or 9:00am – 3:00pm. Also available lollipops wraparound care. Sessions from 7:30am – 9:00am and/or 3:00pm – 5:45pm (term time only). For any further information please contact 07974 719522.
