Cranbrook Windmill Association
We would like to enhance the external view of the Windmill by removing outdated floodlighting and replacing this with discreet, energy-efficient lighting, and improve our exhibitions and displays.

About this cause
We work to preserve, restore and open for public visits Union Windmill (a Grade 1 Listed Building located at the centre of the community). A key element of our work is to educate the community in the history of the building and of wind power as a source of energy. We rely entirely upon volunteers drawn from the community and their skills and, when necessary, we offer additional training.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Union Windmill is routinely visited by residents, their friends and families, by schools and other community groups, thus significantly contributing to community spirit. For our volunteers, friendships made contribute to wider community cooperation, and with opportunities provided by the project to develop and share skills, there will be potential benefits to their physical and mental wellbeing.
