What we are doing to keep each other safe:

  • Adhering to the government Track and Trace system
  • Providing hand sanitizer and hand washing facilities for all staff, volunteers and visitors
  • Carrying out regular cleaning of Brixton Windmill and Brixton Windmill Centre
  • Wearing masks when inside or part of large groups
  • Practising social distancing

We wish to thank all of our supporters for their understanding and patience during this difficult time for everyone and take the opportunity to reflect on what we can deliver moving forward.

We are delighted to say that all of our activities are now up and running including Windmill ToursGuided walksVenue hire, Events and Education workshops.
