On Sunday 16th September, Pann Mill will once again be open to the public from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. Admission is free. All are welcome. There is free car parking in Railway Place car park opposite.
So please come down to the mill. Spread the word. Bring your family and friends. Meet the volunteer millers who will be on hand to talk about their work. Watch the wheel turn to provide the power needed to grind the wheat into flour – and if you wish, buy a bag of the flour for your future baking needs on a nearby stall.
In Margaret’s garden which surrounds the mill building, there will be stalls set up by members of the Society and other local organisations – so bring some pennies to spend on bric-a-brac, plants and books at bargain prices.
Prepare to be enthralled by the High Wycombe Beekeepers’ Association who in the past have been known to bring some of their six-legged friends along in a small hive on their stall, as well as a wide range of products for sale.
Meet members of Chiltern Rangers and Friends of the Wye who concern themselves with local aquatic wildlife. Chiltern Rangers will be carrying out a river cleaning and riverfly monitoring exercise a little further downstream, and are also planning some “arty activities” whatever that means. Their stand will promote forthcoming projects involving Thames Water and the Chilterns Conservation Board.
Also present will be representatives from the local branch of Friends of the Earth with informative displays about their work.
Learn about our twin town of Kelkheim im Taunus, in Germany from members of the High Wycombe Town Twinning Association and discover how you could become involved in twinning-related visits and activities both at home and abroad.
Support the Marjorie Nash Cat Rescue organisation whose stall is guaranteed to include items to delight both felines and their human friends.
We’re delighted also to welcome for the first time Bucks Vision who do so much to help those who suffer from sight impairment.
Be sure to call in at the High Wycombe Society membership stall. Even if you are a long-standing member of the Society, you will find that we are continually adding new things to our stall. This year, we have some lovely new cards featuring well-known scenes of High Wycombe, reproduced from watercolour paintings by Tony Mealing, a member of our Planning Group. There will also be people on hand who can talk about the various volunteering opportunities within the Society. And, if there are any members out there who have omitted to pay their membership subscriptions for 2018-2019 there’ll be an opportunity to do that too!
Finally, relax and chat with others over some well-deserved refreshments. Tea, coffee, and cakes will be on offer, thanks to the generosity of our many members and supporters.
