The Friends of Windmill Gardens is a local residents group, established in 2003 with the aim of restoring and opening the mill and transforming the surrounding park into an area that will be valued by the local community. The Friends organise this programme of open day tours and community events on behalf of Lambeth Council who own Brixton Windmill.
