Organised by Susie Brew

Wilton Windmill is the only working windmill in the South West and for many years I was Secretary of the Wilton Windmill Association.

I now help out with marketing and social media as well as on the open days. It is very rewarding to know that I am contributing to the continued success of a 200 year old building, still doing what it was built to do all those years ago.

So many people get so much pleasure from the windmill - it is very heart-warming to know you are part of it.
