Mill Buildings Survey – Have Your Say!

Millhouses Corn Mill in Millhouses Park dates back before the 13th century and is now the last corn mill in Sheffield. The mill was donated to the Sheffield City Council and has been used as a depot for the park from 1950.

The restoration work on the mill has now started and this questionnaire survey is to investigate how people feel about the suggestions proposed for the mill to be a historical, educational learning centre for the public.

A team of Masters students from Sheffield Hallam University are working on an exciting project on behalf of Millhouses Park to produce ideas for the use of the Mill.

Please take a few minutes to give us your feedback on our ideas by clicking on the link below:

Friends of Millhouses Park Close to Fundraising Target

Nick Clegg visited Millhouses Park to see progress on the restoration of our Mill Buildings on Monday 28th January and commented, “I am hugely impressed by the plans and I would urge everyone to get involved, particularly with the efforts to raise the necessary funding. A mill has been on this site for more than 1,000 years. I’m sure that with a little help and support, this exciting project will see the mill remain an asset for the local community for many more years to come.”

Wassail a Huge Success

Thank you to all who came to the Wassail on Saturday at the Waggon and Horses! It was a roaring success and those who attempted the quiz were certainly tested!

The food was delicious and with all hands on deck to serve the thirsty punters and feed the hungry we had over 160 people attend!

Here are some pictures of the evening courtesy of www.thegoodolddaysstudio.com
