Parents and Toddlers Group

The Parents and Toddlers Group has been temporarily suspended as the numbers have dropped because the current group, who started when they were crawling, have now moved on. It has been a lot of fun. There are lots of toys, some stimulating, some just for play but the St Blaise Community Space has also been very imaginatively used by the toddlers.


It is free, babies are welcome (as well as grandparents). The group meet on Monday afternoons from 2.00pm-4.00pm although the timing is flexible depending on demand ie nap times. If you would like to give this a try please e-mail me:

Milton Matters - Delivery Person Vacancy

Milton Matters is a thoroughly worthwhile local publication and is much valued in our community. Each month Milton Matters is hand-delivered to every household in the Parish by an intrepid band of volunteers. A vacancy has now arisen for deliveries to Midwinter Avenue. The Milton Matters production team would love to hear from anyone (or indeed 2 people sharing) who might consider taking over this delivery round?


Milton Parish Council

The Parish Council are working with Milton United Football Club and others towards the new Community Building. However, this is not just a sporting facility and we would like to hear from any club or group who may wish to use the building in future.

We Cannot Accept Any More Housing Without More Infrastructure
