Nancy Platts reports on a sweet way of thanking local residents for their support

The Friends of Windmill Gardens delivered a surprise gingerbread brunch to residents living next to Brixton Windmill last Saturday.

Although the day was cold and grey, the intrepid Friends were not deterred. After kidnapping two unsuspecting locals for a quick photo for the Streatham Guardian, they delivered 250 free gingerbread windmills to highlight the forthcoming programme of events. This includes a special open day on Sunday 1 April just for residents living on the Blenheim Gardens estate that surrounds the mill.

Jean Kerrigan, Chair of the Friends of Windmill Gardens, said: “The local community are an important part of the Brixton Windmill story and we could not have achieved so much without them. This is our way of saying thank you to them and making sure that they have a chance to see inside their windmill. We also want to say a huge thank you to the Old Post Office Bakery in Clapham for donating the gingerbread windmills.”
