Would you like to help?
The Friends of Upminster Windmill are looking for volunteers to help with maintaining the garden area around the new visitor centre and the wildflower area around the windmill.
The magnificent garden around the new visitor centre was constructed entirely by volunteers of the Friends of Upminster Windmill and a wildflower area around the mill is getting well established. These areas will be open to the public once the restoration of the mill has been completed.
The gardens are maintained by a friendly group of volunteers who work each Tuesday. The hours are flexible. Teas and coffees are available all day and volunteers who stay over the lunch period bring their packed lunches and enjoy a team picnic in either the garden or the building, which is equipped with modern facilities.
The work is suitable for all ages and skill levels. Some of the volunteers are skilled and experienced gardeners while others simply come and give it a go. A lead volunteer provides guidance. The work is therapeutic, healthy and enjoyable and you would be helping to maintain Havering’s most iconic heritage site.
For more information either talk to one of the volunteers on a Tuesday or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We are hoping that the final stages of the mill restoration will be completed during the next few months, enabling the mill to be reopened to the public in April 2022.
