Ever wanted to become a miller or to operate a water mill? If so, here's your chance!
The Friends of Shepshed Watermill are a group of people who help to maintain the mill in a working condition. On the Open Days, once a month between May and September, they operate the mill and provide guidance and information to the visitors and serve in the tea room.
For a nominal subscription you will be able to visit the mill throughout the year on the monthly 'work' days. Maybe you are attracted by the old milling machinery and just wish to learn more, or perhaps you would like to assist in their restoration. Do you fancy a spot of light gardening, maybe with a plot of your own, Or just want a day 'away from it all', working in the fresh air! Then why not consider becoming a Friend.
Get away from the Sunday 'chores' with a day at the mill - there's always something to do!
A regular Newsletter will be produced and distributed free to Friends.
There are normally two working days per month; dates to be agreed.
For further information, contact a Friend or come along to a Work Day or an Open Day.
