Being a registered charity, we are looking for a new Treasurer to manage our financial affairs in line with good practice and in accordance with our governing document and legal requirements. The Treasurer will report to the board of trustees at regular intervals about the financial health of the organisation and will ensure that effective financial measures, controls and procedures are in place, and are appropriate for the charity.

As Treasurer you will use your skills and experience to contribute to our strategic future and act as an ambassador for all aspects of our work.

There is no need to have trustee experience to apply, but a keen desire to support our work is essential. This is a volunteer role.

The whole team at the Wimbledon Windmill wants to say a very big thank you to everyone who plays the #NationalLottery. Times are still tough, but #ThanksToYou and a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund we have been able to make some vital improvements so we can safely re-open as soon as possible. Here’s our honorary curator Norman Plastow, now in his tenth decade, trying out one of our new hand sanitisers.

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

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...

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.
