The members of our dedicated fundraising team, being ably led by George West-Robinson, are busy looking into grants and other types of funding, as well as helping organise loads of fundraising events and activities across the village.
We reckon we need to raise up to £1.3 million before we can turn the key and open The Mill up for the very first time.
