  1. A good turnout for Millers and well done to them.
    Pity that the residents of Rita Hunt Court are forbidden to do any fundraising for themselves, due to an over zealous Scheme Adminisrator, who won’t allow the residents to do anything in the lounge that might benefit them.
    I attended a Xmas Dinner at Rita Hunt. The residents were squashed into one end of the lounge as they aren’t allowed to move the dividing screen (H & S) and the person in charge wouldn’t unlock the screen and move it, despite being asked in advance.
    So much more could be done by and for the residents. But they’re not allowed to. The Residents Social Committee are blocked at every turn.
    They had an Open Day fundraiser. It didn’t do very well as they weren’t allowed to have the Patio Doors open to allow people inside.
    A real shame, as it could be a nice place with different management running it.

  2. I helped out at the millers Christmas fair, it was my first time helping, but if they have a fair this year I would be happy to help
