Northwag News update for 12th April 2017

Today we met at The Lenchford Inn for a meeting.  Top of the agenda was our planned Open Day at Winnall Mill as part of the Council of British Archaeology, Festival of Archaeology. We intend to show folks around the mill remains and the more recent discoveries. To save the guides having to walk down and back to the car park with visitors, we have devised a self-guide walk plan.

We held a meeting at the Lenchford Inn this morning.  Nine of us worked our way through the plans for the Open Day at Winnall Mill, on 29th and 30th of July 2017.  Francesca read out a list of all the societies she will be contacting and the parish magazines that will be listing the event.  The direction arrows for the self-guided walk are ready, there is a bit more work to be done on the self-guided walk returnable handout.

Unfortunately only 4 stalwarts arrived to help us do the work to  clean and tidy Winnall Mill ready for the open day  Next Weekend.  This means we will be back to the site again next Wednesday to finish it off and  do final preparations.  Friday will be route marking, and litter clearing around the area where we will be meeting and greeting the guests.  Due to undesirable visitor’s offensive garbage has been thrown around (say no more).
