A HUGE THANK YOU to #NationalLottery players for making it possible for The National Lottery Heritage Fund to fund us as part of our Emergency Appeal to cover our costs this year.

A big thank you to all of those kind people who supported us by donating so generously to our emergency appeal: we have managed to raise over £8,000!
We have been overwhelmed by the spirit of generosity shown towards our cherished windmill. As we have reached our target and now have sufficient funds to meet our fixed costs in 2020, the Crowdfunder appeal is now closed.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR AMAZING SUPPORT!

Happy 25th Birthday to The National Lottery! @HeritageFundUK support enabled us to carry out essential repairs to our historic windmill. When one of its sails fell off in 2016, lottery funding enabled us to repair the sail and carry out important maintenance works to the other sails. #NationalLottery25

Wombles author’s daughter makes use of toys left behind

What a lot of Wombles! Visit us for our Carol Concert on 14th December at 3pm and find more in our shop!

THE daughter of Wombles author Elisabeth Beresford has donated her mother’s memorabilia and toys to charity — reusing them like the furry creatures did with their finds. Kate Robertson was a girl when she mispronounced ‘Wimbledon’ as ‘Wombledon’ during a walk with her mother on the commo...

There was a very moving event at the Windmill on Armistice Day, 11th November, to remember all those from the local area who fell during the Great War.

Some 700 people gathered to hear the piper play a lament. Most had walked across the Common in the dark from the Wimbledon and Roehampton War Memorials, and carried candles and rang handbells as a display of the names of 900 who had died scrolled through on the screen.

It was a memorable event and a tribute to those who gave their lives for us 100 years ago.

A group of our loyal volunteers enjoyed a visit to Cobham Mill today and saw the watermill in action grinding corn.

We were immensely impressed by the restoration work that was carried out twenty years ago to enable the mill to be run today.

Many thanks to our Volunteer Coordinator, Linda, and also to our counterparts at Cobham who gave their time to show us round.

26/08/2018

Bank Holiday Monday. The Windmill Museum will be open from 11am to 5pm. Come and see the wonderful exhibits and grind your own corn!

Such a lovely event! Victoria was extremely happy 😃
Wimbledon Chase Primary School had great fun building this ‘Wimbledon Bugmill’ insect hotel, celebrating the wonderful Wimbledon Windmill and Wimbledon tennis. It’s currently on show at RHS Hampton Court Garden Festival!
Morning, is there anything going over half term please?
A fond memory of my mother's family from 1935 with the windmill just visible in the top left. The orig. photo is only 2 inches across so hard to spot & tech. poor, so I'll remove if required.
