Village Recycling Update

The recycling bins for tetrapaks and aluminium foil items are moving from Redlands Yard to the Comrades Hall car park.

  • Please take your recycling there from now on.
  • Please don’t put any other items in these bins – it is very unpleasant for volunteers!!

…Talking of which they urgently need more. Recently, two volunteers have left and now there are slots for the upcoming months not covered.

If you are able, please help. It isn’t difficult or time consuming… a trip to Bridport. What it does mean is that this service, which is so important, can remain local.

Recycling At Redlands Yard

A message from Jackie Riley:

The recycling of tetrapaks and aluminium items has been going on for some years now with the help of six sets of volunteers managing a month every six months and has largely been working well with backup from Tony and I.

Recently I received a complaint as the bins were overflowing.  It is vital if you cannot manage your month or even some of it to let me know so I can either swop you with someone else or step in and help. If this doesn’t happen then we have the situation we had last week with tetrapaks everywhere and a very unsightly situation. It is also a potential attraction to vermin even more concerning.

I would be delighted to receive the offer of help from more people so I have a bank of people to provide back up.  All it entails is weekly emptying of both bins and at the end of your month a trip to Bridport recycling when you are heading that way to be environmentally friendly.   Provision of two large bin bags and that is it!

Pegs have been provided to ensure the bin bags stay secure.

Many thanks for any offers of help in advance.  This benefits us all and the planet.

Medication Delivery Unavailable On Tuesdays

Barton House Medical Practice have issued the following message:

Regrettably from 31st May 2022 we are no longer able to offer our free medication delivery service on a Tuesday to Mosterton, Broadwindsor or Marshwood. Currently Friday deliveries will remain the same.
It’s saddens us to have to stop this service but unfortunately it’s out of our control.
We would LOVE to reinstate this service so if you, or you know of anyone who would be keen to volunteer then please contact the surgery.
It would entail a couple of hours on a Tuesday with full milage paid where you would be required to take medication from the surgery to local drop off points to help out our patients who are unable to collect from the surgery/pharmacy.

If you can help – please contact the surgery on 01308 861938.

Trying to Trace Hutchins Family In Broadwindsor…

The photograph shows Linda Hutchins Taniguchi. Linda plans to visit the village next May (Covid allowing) from the USA.  Linda has provided the following information in the hope of moving forward with her quest to trace more of her family…

Linda’s Hutchins family was from Broadwindsor back to Mathew Hutchins (1640-1708) who is buried in the cemetery. His son was Hugh Hutchins (1667-1727), is also buried there.

Hugh‘s wife was Mary Knight and Mathew‘s wife was Margaret (surname unknown). Hugh‘s son was Thomas Hutchins who travelled to the USA in the late 1600’s or early 1700’s and settled in one of the original 13 colonies, Massachusets.

Does anyone know of any Hutchins still in the area?  If you have any information on these families that you can share, Linda would really appreciate it! Linda also asks if there is anything in the area named after Hutchins?

Please contact info@broadwindsor.org if you can assist.

Thank you!
