Brixton's Hidden Windmill

I'm working with Brixton Windmill to review and update their schools sessions, and write some new ones.  It's a real privilege to work with such a place - I've been aware of the Windmill for years, but to work in my own neighbourhood, for this secret gem tucked just out of sight of the rush of Brixton, is a real treat.  Furthermore, my mind is boggled by the professionalism and hard work of the Friends of Windmill Gardens - the Windmill is an entirely voluntary-run organisation, though they fight hard to make this otherwise. 20171113_093924 And it's pretty magical to turn up for a workshop that is as-good-as-outside, on a crisp, autumn morning!
