Since October 2011 a new group of trustees has been working to revive the Grade II listed windmill in Dereham. The Trustees have been successful in gaining a BIFFA Award of £50,000 which will fund the first phases of renovation: the restoration of the cap so it can turn again in response to wind direction changes, replacement windows and doors making the windmill both weatherproof and enabling access into the mill. Other grant sources are being approached to enable other works to be undertaken: replace the sails, provide parking, refreshment facilities and toilets.
Please join the ‘Friends of Dereham Windmill’ and make the Dereham pupils/children’s dream a reality. Ring Anna on 01362 692444 or Pauline or 01362 694511
