AGM Report

For those of you unable to get to the NMDCA AGM on Tuesday 30th June the warm evening started with a refreshing glass of Pimms. Chairman Richard Mollon reviewed the work of the NMDCA over the last year. He welcomed two new additions to the committee who will join us at our regular meetings to discuss issues and plan forthcoming events.

Some of the residents raised the problems encountered by users of the Hall. They were finding the extra Nursery equipment was making alternative uses more and more difficult. If other people have also experienced issues with either the booking or use of the Hall please let us know so we can raise it with Yellow Dot.

Future events were discussed including a themed 70s-80s night with live entertainment and an ever popular quiz later in the year.

Interesting evening in the Reserve

IMG_3767aOn Tuesday 16th June 2015 a small but enthusiastic group were taken on an instructive tour of the Flexford Nature Reserve adjacent to North Millers Dale. It was a delightfully warm summers evening and Clare, our guide of the Reserve from the Wildlife Trust, took us through the varied habitats represented, just a stones throw from our homes. Even regular walkers were treated to some fascinating sights that could have been easily bypassed on a casual walk. The icing on the cake was being shown two different Orchids growing wild.


AGM 2013Thanks to everyone who attended the North Millers Dale Community Association Annual General Meeting held in the community hall on Wednesday 3rd July. The evening started with a glass of Pimms as people arrived. The meeting was opened by Chairman Richard Mollon and in addition to the formal meeting items there was items some lively debate including antisocial behavior on the estate and traffic light phasing. Councillor Pam Holden Brown committed to reporting the comments to the council.

Fascinating Introduction to the Flexford Reserve


Walk on the Wild side

The weather was perfect for the our guided evening walk led by warden Claire Bishop from the Hampshire and IOW Wildlife Trust. Discovering that there were so many different varieties of wild flowers present in Lower Flexford Woods, evidence of wildlife and why cattle are brought in to graze the land, was very interesting.  Claire kept everyone captivated, so much so that time flew and the walk carried on until 9pm! Ric Green from Rosemore Grove will often be found with volunteers in the woods, clearing and managing the woodland area. If you see him, do stop for a chat and he will tell you what they are doing. Ric is also a member of the Hampshire and IOW Wildlife Trust.

Head scratching quiz night

Test your brainsThe North Millers Dale community hall hosted a successful quiz night on Saturday 18th Feb with Phil Heller posing the questions. Thirty local residents made up eight teams to have their knowledge tested. Rounds ranged from Music to News to General Knowledge and even a round with twenty questions about Eastleigh! Surprisingly, there were many interesting things to learn about somewhere right on our doorstep. All the teams did well and the scores at the end were quite close, even though one team didn’t realise that one of the question papers was double sided! Well done to the ‘quizy rascals’ team who won the top prize.
