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.

Milltown Day Workshop was set up in 1996 to provide practical work activities for local people with a range of disabilities.Currently there are seven people with a learning disability whose home is at Milltown, and a further twenty two local work in the Day Workshop every week. Some have a learning disability; some have had accidents or a stroke, and some have mental health issues. The Day Workshop provides opportunities for our workers to be involved in a wide range of work and skills; crafts, woodwork, gardening, animal husbandry, and refurbishing tools within a social group, giving individuals a big choice and inclusion. Second hand tools are refurbished and sent to Africa to be used by local craftsmen, many of whom have a disability.The Day Workshop is very much a part of the local community who visit in groups or individually to purchase hand-made items for sale in our shop
