April’s Edition of Milton Matters proudly sponsored by MICE

  • About 12 years ago number of Milton Residents came together to create a community group to organise social events within our Parish.


    Our regular events include The Duck Race, The Tadpole Feast & Barn Dance and The Firework Display and from time to time we also help to organise one-off events, such as the recent Great Milton Quiz.


    The Tadpole Feast (our village fete!) is scheduled for Saturday 29 June 2019, and it will soon be time to have a preliminary meeting to discuss its organisation. In any community group, it is essential to have an influx of ‘new blood’ bringing new energy and ideas, so we would really love to hear from anyone who would like to contribute?


    If you would like to help, or know a little more, please email:

Milton Hill Bowling Club

As the weather improves and the evenings grow longer it is nearly time for the 2019 outdoor bowls season, starting with the annual Chairman’s vs Captains’ battle on Saturday 13 April at 2.00pm. There will also be a ‘spider’ where bowlers spread themselves around the 30m x 30m green perimeter and on the whistle, bowl one wood hoping to end up closest to a jack in the middle. Two minutes of fun and chaos, all for a much-prized bottle. .
