On the 7th May the Cubs had a visit from PC Colin Boyes. He gave the Cubs a brief history lesson about the police in general and Thames Valley Police in particular. Next he brought out some exhibits from the police museum; the Cubs had great fun trying it all on.
The Hurst Singers have returned to Mortimer after a winter holiday in Tadley. New members of all abilities are welcome. We are a mixed 4 part choir singing many styles of music. Rehearsals are at 7:30pm at St. John's Hall on Thursdays each term.
April is the busiest time in the garden, but don’t panic, take things one step at a time and you’ll get it all done. It’s important to take a few moments to sit in the sun, listen to the birds, and admire any colour you have in the garden. Make a note of any gaps in your spring planting to order any bulbs in the autumn for next year.
Once again, the people of Mortimer demonstrated their love for the village by grabbing rubbish sacks and litter pickers, and set about cleaning up many of the streets and green spaces.
The aim of this page is to collect information about all local recycling opportunities, whether just good ways of disposing of things locally or where a group is collecting something to raise funds. Please use the Contact Us form to send us details of any recycling opportunities you know about which aren't listed.
Recycling for Fund Raising
We use our Twitter feed to tweet and retweet useful local information. All of the day's events from our calendar are tweeted each morning at 8am, and then each event has a reminder tweet one hour before the event start time.
Please follow @VillageMortimer if you want to get quick updates on village events from the MVP.
MVP was formed in 2008/2009 by a group of villagers wanting to fulfil some of the requests expressed by the village in the second Parish Plan – more things going on locally for young families, more things going on locally for the older generation, and better communications, for example. You can see the Parish Plan on the SMPC website with the actions we set off to try and do.
