Following a suggestion at our AGM in September, the Osmington Mills Protection Group (OMPG) is holding an informal meeting at The Smuggler’s Inn, Osmington Mills, on Monday, March 17 from 7pm to 9pm.
The aim is to encourage some friendly discussion about any issues in our area that may be of concern and come under the OMPG’s remit. For those of you not familiar with the OMPG, our key objectives are to protect the natural history, tranquility, archaelogical features and beauty of this area. We do this by monitoring leisure developments and resisting any further increase or spread that would have a negative impact on our community and its standing as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
Our main area of focus is Osmington Mills, Upton, the valley around the Osmington Mills stream, Upton Fort/Springbottom and Grove Farm, although our area of interest extends to the whole of the Osmington Parish, Ringstead and Holworth.
We hope the evening will give existing members a chance to catch up with each other, air their views and concerns regarding any current issues, and enable any non-members to find out more about us and hopefully join our cause. Membership costs just £6 per yer for individuals, and £10 for households. Our membership includes locals, former residents, and those from both the surrounding areas and further afield who are passionate about our aims and want to support them.
If you require any further information, please contact Derek Thomas on 01305 852173, or Jill Dunning on 07811 350364.
