Last Saturday, despite a torrential downpour at the start of the Teddy Bear Abseil from the top of Dereham Windmill, large numbers of Teddy Bears were brought along and absailed down the side of the Windmill in aid of Charity.

Becky Jago from Anglia TV opened the proceedings and large numbers members of the community enjoyed watching the Teddys abseil, the Teddy Bear Treasure Hunt and Picnic. Additionally the new Community Hall/Coffee Shop facilities and the side stalls were well suported, with many visitors to the Fred Nicolson Exhibition in the Windmill – overall the day was a great success for all!

A fantastic total of £400 for the Dereham Windmill Charity was raised and Brian Webb, Dereham Windmill Chairman, thanks all who suppported this fun event.
