This week we held an induction evening at Strutt's North Mill. Intended for our recent and new volunteers, all were welcome.
As we come to the end of our summer opening hours, I realise I can look back over more than half the season.
From November through to March the Mill is open at weekends only, though groups and schools are very welcome to book private tours during the week.
Earlier this year we celebrated twenty years of Strutt's North Mill as a volunteer led visitor attraction and museum.
We have also received funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund for a governance review and Arts Council England funding through the Museum Resilience Fund for a new Fund Raising and Volunteer Support Officer, Tom Wyke.
He will be sharing some of his thoughts and progress on this blog soon.
There's a wealth of enthusiasm, knowledge and dedication here at the Mill, thanks to volunteers past and present, new and old. As we all look to the future, we can only say long may it continue.
