The May 2003 newsletter
from the Friends of Upminster windmill reports steady progress with the
mill. Of note are that the sails turned in April after adjustments to
the brake, and over 200 people visited over Mills Weekend. More work on
the sails is reported, and shutters are being put back in place.
The mill's bicentenary will be celebrated on Sunday 13th July from 2-6pm.
Mill helpers will be in 1803 costume, and lots of exhibits and activities
