Milltown Community are proud to announce the arrival of their new electric car. After much painstaking research by Andrew Plant and an inclusive meeting - which was attended by tenants and co-workers - Milltown voted in favour of a trade in for a new Nissan Leaf. Our Nissan is 100% electric so produces zero emissions as opposed to our thirsty diesel cars and is a pleasure to drive. It has a good range on full charge and co-workers are learning how to drive it in an economical way, and where it can be charged up whilst out in the wider community. We have also had a dedicated charging point installed at Milltown so that we are always ready to go. Our Nissan has proved to be a big hit with both co-workers and tenants and is now the default car for most outings.
We feel that it has been a very good move and hope that other Camphill communities will be inspired to look into getting their own electric vehicles.

Hello and welcome to the May issue of Milltown day workshops newsletter this month has been a little quieter than most but we’ve still been had at work.
We had the family day on Saturday the 30th and it went very well and was enjoyed by all.
We also had a car boot sale that went very well and we sold £69 worth of tools.
The woodwork shop has been hard at work most of May making art screens unfortunately we don’t have any pictures but we made 10 8ft x 6ft and 10 4ft x 6ft screens which took a lot of work.
