You may remember the crowdfunding appeal run by Uckfield & District Preservation Society, to raise funds to repair expensive damage to Nutley Windmill.  They were aiming to raise £10,000 towards the costs of the repairs. 

The Society is delighted to announce that they reached that target, the amount raised standing at c. £10,500 when the appeal closed.  Gift Aid will increase this amount further.  The hope now to be able to replace the broken stocks and re-attach the sweeps in June, bringing the windmill back to its normal splendid condition.

The Society would like to thank anyone who helped, by publicising the appeal, and by donating.  Thank you to everyone who supported the appeal.

The windmill is beautifully situated on the southern edge of Ashdown Forest and would make a splendid setting for an event.  UDPS also look after Bridge Cottage, in Uckfield High Street.  You can hire a meeting room in the Cottage, or the building can be hired for receptions, and similar events.  Please contact UDPS at Bridge Cottage if you would like to discuss possibilities via their website.
