Would you like to help but don’t know how? Here are some ideas:
  • Keeping the outside of the mill looking neat and tidy (this can be done as and when you’d like to, whether the mill is open or closed)
  • Serving refreshments in our small gift shop (one afternoon a week, or whenever suits you within our opening times)
  • Baking demonstrations or tasters (for events, or for weekly tasters in our gift shop. This could even be done from home, we’ll provide the ingredients!)
  • Tour guide (once a week during our opening times, or for events only if you’d prefer)
  • School trips and group visits (as and when during term times)
  • Regular monthly group sessions (toddler clubs, craft clubs)
