A good turnout attended the Woodbridge Tide Mill end of season get together, at the Shire Hall on Friday 17th November. They enjoyed wine and canapés while John Carrington gave a summary of the season past, as well as welcoming new volunteers.
The evening also saw the incoming chairman present outgoing chairman Nigel Barratt and his wife Anne with a specially commissioned, exquisite model of the Tide Mill, made by Paul Wells, as a thank you for years of dedicated hard work.
John Carrington, chairman of Woodbridge Tide Mill Trust, added,
“Woodbridge Tide Mill would not be the successful, well-maintained icon that it is without it’s ‘champions’ Nigel and Anne Barratt. At no small sacrifice to themselves they have built the Tide Mill, its reputation and a dedicated group of volunteers into a major local, and increasingly national, attraction”
Nigel Barratt commented,
“When I started the tradition several years ago of an end of season party to thank all those who helped look after the mill, little did I think that one day there would be a party when I was only a guest. But all good things come to an end, and for Anne and I to be presented with a magnificent gift of a model of the Tide Mill, made it a special event for which we are both very grateful.”
