It's time for the HYOC2020 'Object of the Year' awards with Hertfordshire Museums and what better object than our own 18th century watermill!

The magnificent piece of engineering has been turning at a pace of times gone by, proving its value to the community once again.

This month's HYOC2020 theme is 'Friends and Family' and, because we haven't been able to see very much of our neighbour Joyce recently, we sent YOCI round with one of our brand new Grab & Go Cream Teas!

Thanks for the tips yesterday on proper tensioning of the dough and sieving the flour . Todays loaf a real success!
Love this place ! Have brought my grandchildren here when they were younger and the flour is wonderful , made some delicious bread this lockdown with the flour ! Even made rolls for the first time and they were delicious ! Linda Dobbs, fab service manager had passed via email to me some lovely tips as I am not used to baking hand made bread only use my bread maker usually but with trial and error have made delicious bread now ! Will come on a workshop hopefully one day !
Will there be any Halloween events going on during half term please?
Thank you Sharon for a great toddler morning . Sad that there were so few people for all the effort but we had a ball ๐Ÿ˜€
Is the Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday cafe coming to Mill Green again this Summer? When does it start please??
Good morning, I would like to come along to the toddler morning this week. We have a 14 month old who is toddling. Is he the right age to come along?
A superb Halloween party at the mill (as always!) huge thanks to all the staff and volunteers for making the place so special and for the attention and kindness offered to our children. Our son and his friend had a blast. The disco tent was a stroke of genius - please keep it for future events. Already looking forward to your Christmas event. You asked for feedback and recommendations - Please start creating Facebook events again. Then those of us that are big fans can share your fabulous activities and hopefully increase the footfall a little. Thanks again x
