Don’t let Brixton Windmill’s education programme grind to a halt

This petition had 373 supporters


Please help us to persuade Lambeth Council not to delay its plans for a new building in Windmill Gardens, so that our education programme does not grind to a halt in Brixton Windmill's bicentenary year.

Brixton Windmill, one of Lambeth's most famous landmarks, is 200 years old in 2016. Since it was restored with the help of a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) in 2010-11, the mill has been open to the public in the summer months for free tours run by the Friends of Windmill Gardens, and introduced over 2,800 children from local schools to a wide range of topics related to windmills and local history.

In January 2015 the council agreed to provide a new building in Windmill Gardens, to secure the future of the Windmill and the education programme. But now Lambeth officers propose to go back on this decision and delay the building for an unspecified period of time.

Please sign our petition to ensure the building goes ahead without delays so that our education programme can continue into 2016 and expand to provide workshops to schools across Lambeth.
