Volunteer fundraiser and education facilitator

"I thoroughly enjoy working with the school workshops, watching the animated faces of the young children (usually nursery and reception) as they learn about the windmill. Being a people person, I love interaction with the variety of people who visit from all walks of life."

"I’m most proud of the difference we have made to Windmill Gardens, right from the beginning. It used to be in a state of disrepair, but we have introduced regular social activities that are attractive to the local residents regardless of background."

"For me, it's all about the people. Being part of a team is important and of course it's great meeting all of the different visitors who come to the windmill wanting to know its story."
