Celebration of Milford on Sea Beach Hut Rebuilding and Opening

3rd September 2017

     

             15 February 2014                                                              July 2017

In spite of the weather on Sunday 3rd September, we did indeed celebrate the rebuilding and opening of the Milford huts. In British bulldog style everyone carried on regardless... There was a real community spirit and determination to enjoy the event, rain, wind and all.

Many thanks are due to those who opened their huts, those who helped from our committee in the lead up and on the day, and those Milford hut owners who took on extra duties. 

The village butcher's plan no. 3 was excellent, replacing the originally intended hog roast by providing instead delicious and very welcome pork baps and vegetarian paella.

Last but by no means least - most particular and very extra special thanks to Milford rep. Colin Holdsworth for organising and arranging everything in advance and galvanising the troops into action. 

A memorable day indeed.

    

 

A Reminder about Planning Permission from NFDC

"Owners must not only apply for planning permission for replacement huts, but for any changes (even if like for like) to both decking or steps."

This refers to Section 18 of the Licence. See the full version of this in our 'Members' Only' Area.
