Welcome to the Mellis eNews


MNews logo


The Mellis eNews is run by a team of volunteers.  Our aim is to keep the village informed of local events, important issues, and as much useful info as we can muster. Oh and of course there is our e-newsletter, which we publish approximately once every four months. Our COMMUNITY page includes information about local clubs and organisations, where to stay, and of course details on our local hostelry.  While our INFO page provides answers to many of those questions we all ask now and again about local services but don't know where to find an answer from.

You can also find us on FACEBOOK. Just click the link on the left of this page or the f icon at the top of any page  - we regularly post items on Facebook that we think you might be interested in or that concern local issues.  

We hope you find our website interesting and informative. You will find all previous editions of the Mellis eNews e-newsletter on the ARCHIVE page. 

Event details, news items etc can be submitted at any time just let us have a poster or details.

The Hidden Gardens of Mellis

Open Garden Event in aid of St Mary the Virgin Church , Mellis.


The proud owners of some 13 gardens in the village opened their gates to the public over the weekend of 2-3 June 2018. The event raised a total of £2500 for Church funds.  A grateful thanks to all that opened their gardens and to those who visited them, drank tea, enjoyed lunch, tea, coffee and cakes, and purchased plants. You can read a brief report from the organisers HERE.


If you visited the gardens and would just like to see some of them again or you were unable to come click HERE to see our gallery of images. 

If you took any photos of the gardens and have a particular favourite that you would like to share with us please email us a copy and we will add it to our gallery.


*Please note we have deliberately not identified the gardens featured in the image gallery. 






This year the Mellis eNews website has been sponsored by a local resident who was keen to see the Mellis eNews website & newsletter continue.

We would like to thank the former members of Mellis PC for sponsoring the website last year.
