WE HAVE always appreciated the strong support we get from The Press so I wonder if I could ask you to help us find some volunteers.

We are keen to increase the number of visits by school parties, particularly in the secondary and older primary age range.

Before we do that, we need more people to show such groups around the mill.

The ideal would be retired or part-time teachers who already have the ability to communicate with young people and experience of managing such groups in a very safety-conscious environment.

We would offer full training and you would have a chance to be involved in the windmill.

If this appeals to you please phone Bob Anderton on 01904 795851.
