Journal’s sad demise helps Mill

The Bunbury Mill Team was sad to hear of the termination of the esteemed Bunbury Journal after 40-odd years of publication.

However, there was a silver lining – a donation of £800 was made from the Journal’s residual funds to the Bunbury Watermill Trust, making a substantial  contribution towards the cost of replacing the embrittled wooden cogs on the sack hoist drive gear.

On the left of the group is Dave Clapperton of the Journal team – on the right Mike Watson, who masterminded the machining and instalment of the new cogs.
