White Mill Sandwich - Rebuilding after Brendan

Do you want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money in aid of White Mill Rural Heritage Centre and every donation will help. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.

We care for an 18th century windmill, miller's cottage and rural heritage museum. The mill was built in 1760 and still has its original workings. Our long-term project is to fully restore the mill to working order and develop a new visitor centre. 

Our volunteers have been working tirelessly on the windmills cap, carefully restoring its internal workings and structure. 

Storm Brendan left its mark destroying the  caps shelter, damaging several parts of the restoration, the mill itself plus the roof of the wheelwrights and gallery. 

We have managed to clear the damage and work on the cap will start again next week. It's set us back, but it hasn't stopped us continuing to restore this beautiful windmill.

The target we have set is so that we can get a company into repair the damaged to the roof of the wheelwrights and the gallery, allowing our wonderful volunteers to focus on the restoration. 
We need to get these  repairs done quickly as every time it rains more damage is done to the museums structure and its displays. 

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated and who has supported us in the past. Please do visit the museum in the future and see how your donation has helped protect this treasure of a museum.
