January newsletter… just!

doormatThe January Miller’s Tale should be dropping onto your doormat very soon, thanks to the efforts of Carole Mollon who eventually managed to tame the rogue printer that seemed determined to push our January issue into February. She and her husband Richard then gamely collated, folded and stapled the 400 copies by hand, a job normally done by the printing machine.

If you’re an NMDCA follower who doesn’t live on the estate and won’t be getting your copy delivered, you can still read the Miller’s Tale at https://nmdca.files.wordpress.com/2020/01/newsletter-a3-form-jan-20-for-web.pdf 

This quarter we have put a couple of flyers inside the newsletter to encourage you to join us for a Gin night hosted by the Hiltingbury Still in the Community Hall. Following what I’m sure will be an informative and interesting presentation by Clio of the Hiltingbury Still there will be opportunities to sample the Gins and some nibbles then rack your brains with a slightly alcohol related quiz to finish off the evening.

There is also a flyer inviting you to a special evening at the Hiltonbury Farmhouse to meet a local author. After he takes you through the evidence, can you come up with a verdict on a cold murder case whilst enjoying a two course meal and a glass of wine?

Go to https://nmdca.wordpress.com/events-coming-soon/ for more details about these two upcoming events.

 

What was this for?

Here’s a question. Does anyone know what the brickwork between the Farmhouse and the Community Hall was intended for?

The middle picture was posted on our sister site Chandler’s Ford Neighbours by Sarah Ghafoor and got me thinking. 27336986_10215251824756087_129756936024032815_nThe picture dates back to 1986. Some of it was removed to allow the Deanery to access the car park but some still remains.fhnew
