Windmill news

New windmill chairman
The Old Buckenham Windmill Committee is delighted to announce that a new volunteer has come forward to take over the role of Committee Chairman as a replacement for Murray Curtis. Murray now wishes to retire from this role after co-ordinating the initial interest group set up in 1994 and later being on the local committee responsible for overseeing public open days.
Tom North, who lives near to the windmill, has kindly come forward to take over as Chairman. He is a qualified building surveyor with experience of the management of building structures and is therefore well placed to act as the local coordinator and contact point with the County Council in the planning of future open days. It is hoped that the work in progress to repair the sails and to deal with some rot in the cap can be completed in time for reopening sometime next Spring.
