Sunday 4th December at 10 am
Volunteer work day at Cross In Hand Windmill
It's going to be cold. Wrap up. Bring food and water. Gloves are a good idea, as are some sort of hat/balaclava etc.

The mill is dangerous and dirty, and has a major pigeon problem. For this reason, face masks will be provided. If you have the odd wheelbarrow or trolley, please bring it. If anyone is fortunate enough to have a skate, then please please bring it.

Cross In Hand

Anyone who enters the mill will be doing so at their own risk. We will ask you to sign a disclaimer beforehand, in accordance with the owners wishes. No liability is expected from the owners.

The ladder to the first floor will be removed, as the first floor is particularly dodgy. Once the area below the trestle is cleared, we will put the ladder back, but people can only go up in twos.

Once it's all done, there is a pub in the village....

Please contact Philip Hicks for further details

There will be a Raffle with seasonal prizes and a collection will be taken to ensure that you empty your purses and pockets, with all proceeds donated to The Martlets Hospice.

WARNING !! Get there early as this is a very popular event and space is limited.
