Teddy Bears Picnic at West Blatchington Windmill
Ivan, son of committee members Pat and Jane Marshall, who come from High Salvington Mill, near Worthing, has offered to organise a picnic, starting at 1 pm. Free mill tours will also run from 2 pm to 5 pm.
All cuddly toys and their owners (including adults) are welcome.
There will be various games, a teddy bear zip wire, and a teddy bear hunt in the mill.
For lunch, bring a picnic and blanket, and the usual refreshments will be available in the barn.
Please come, even if you don't have a cuddly toy, to support Ivan and the committee, and even raise a few funds to help pay for the mill's restoration.
The current painting and repairs are NEARLY finished, but there a few small items outstanding, so unfortunately the scaffolding is unlikely to be down by 11th September.
