CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

We are looking forward to welcoming everyone back to the Windmill soon and are currently planning the staggered return of our activities in line with the Government’s Roadmap over the coming months.

As of 12th April, our weekly tai chi sessions and monthly gardening sessions will resume in line with government guidelines. Spaces are limited for both of these activities to ensure social distancing and so you must book your place in advance by emailing info@brixtonwindmill.org

The pop-up café will be open weekdays offering takeaway only from Monday 19th April from 2-4pm and on Saturdays from 11am – 1pm.

Our online shop will continue to operate, but delivery times may be longer, as we will have limited access to merchandise stored at the centre.

Our volunteer millers are continuing to produce flour while observing the government guidance on social distancing. All flour we produce is delivered safely by our volunteers to our established retail outlets, including local shops that remain open to customers and those that are closed to the public but provide home deliveries of groceries. We also continue to make regular donations of Brixton Flour to two local food banks.

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.

You can help us by completing the short survey linked below. One of the key aims of this survey is to find out what we could do to improve our offer of projects, activities and services delivered at Brixton Windmill Centre. While we have not been able to open the centre to the public during Covid-19 restrictions, we want to make sure the voice of the local community and our members help us to improve the future programme.
