Update on local bus fares

We have been asked to share the following message from Stagecoach – 

“Good morning,

We’ve done our best to hold back fare increases but due to rising costs, we’ve had to make the difficult decision to increase our fares across the East from 8th January 2023. We will continue to offer the same ticket types, but at slightly different prices.

These are the first network-wide fare increases we have made for over four and a half years, since April 2018, and we’ve worked hard to absorb significant cost increases to keep fares below the rate of inflation. The changes will add on average just 39p onto the cost of daily adult bus travel.

Please take a look at the attached booklet [link] for full details on the new fares. Further information will be available on our website from 10am today.

If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us at  ”


Wondered what has happened to the village pump?

The pump in Cambridge Road has been taken away for a refurbish. Unfortunately, the top cap is missing, and we are having to get something else made to complete the project.
When the pump returns it will also include a large information board and a sculpture. All hopefully to be revealed early in 2023. This make-over is another one of our arts funded projects using money given to Milton Parish which must be spent on arts related ventures before 2024 otherwise we lose it. No funds from the council tax are used for these projects.
Have you seen this?
We need to find the pump cap to complete our renovation of the village pump in Cambridge Road. If you have seen this anywhere or know where there is a similar one please let the Parish Clerk know.

Important update – Defibrillator on Milton Parish Council wall

Update – because of the continuing low temperatures the defibrillator is being kept indoors at the Community Centre office as that is open for longer hours (Monday-Friday 8:30-4:30pm)
The red light is showing on the defibrillator cabinet. The defibrillator is working but the cabinet is not heating up during this very cold spell due to a technical error.
Repair of the issue is in hand



On March 1st 1902 John Wilson aged 78 years died. He was buried in the new All Saints’ Churchyard extension Landbeach Road – Milton Cemetery.
In 2021 we set out to produce a plan of this cemetery.
We began by identifying all those graves or remains of graves that had legible names and inscriptions and plotted them on to the plan.
Our next step was to trawl through the Parish Records to identify those grave spaces that have no headstone or any commemorative plaque/marker.
Before the 1960’s the burials were clearly marked in the Church Records eg 4/23 and we were able to put them in the correct place but from the 1960’s there are burials in these records without any indication where the graves are situated in the cemetery.
We have had to estimate where these unmarked graves are using the dates of the burials.
There will be errors therefore and if anyone knows of an incorrect location of a grave please inform the clerk to Milton Parish
Council at
We have also taken photographs of every grave or head/kerbstone – see PHOTOS.
