May

We have a special event on 11th May, the 30th anniversary of Reg Adsett’s walk in 1984 to raise funds for the initial restoration of the mill.  The walk will be approximately 6-7 miles including both Jack and Jill Windmills and Oldland Mill.  The guided walk will leave Hassocks station at 11.00 and Clayton recreation ground at 11.30.  Anyone unable to make the steep climb from the recreation ground to Jill Mill will be offered a lift.  Tea and coffee will be available at the mill from 2 pm.  All welcome to join the walk.  Any queries please contact Peter Sheppard at barneycalls@gmail.com.

Event Days will be on May 4th,  (when we are privileged to have the World Famous Hammersmith Morris Dancers performing 1 – 2.30 pm, plus Beer Tent), July 13th (Country Crafts, Hagop Kasparian exhibition of Local Art) and September 7th (Copper Family Singers and other musical attractions).  11 a.m. – 4 p.m.  Open Afternoons will be on June 1st, August 3rd and October 5th, 2 – 5p.m.  More information as further attractions are booked.  Do come and support us to help us raise the £5,000 needed every year to maintain and insure the mill.  Donations at these events are greatly appreciated – we suggest £3 per person or £5 per family.

We still urgently need Volunteers to help on Event Days (this may be on stalls, giving guided tours, serving refreshments etc.), also more committee members to contribute to our publicity drives and to support our fund-raising activities.  Fred Maillardet, will be very pleased to hear from anyone who feels they could contribute in any way.
