We are delighted to have appointed a new trainee miller. The post has been vacant since former trainee Andy Hallam took over as head miller in July. The position is funded by an Arts Council grant that has previously been administrated by Nottingham City Museums. However, the remaining balance of the grant, which will cover the next six months, has been passed to the Trust to administer.
Advertisement of the role caught the imagination of the local media, with BBC East Midlands Today, BBC Radio Nottingham, Notts TV and the Nottingham Post all running pieces about the job, which generated lots of positive media coverage about the Trust and the Mill.
We are delighted to have appointed Leigh Evans as trainee miller. Leigh volunteered at the Mill during 2014-15 prior to working at Wollaton Hall which he will be leaving to start at Green’s Windmill from the 1st February. We hope that the duration of the post will be extended beyond the initial six months, but this is dependent on the Trust finding the funding to do so. Please do pop by the Mill and say ‘hello’ to Leigh in February.
