Neil Pilling Photography Exhibition

A lovely first exhibition for local amateur and self-taught photographer Neil Pilling.
It is said that 'Everyone is a photographer' nowadays - yes, we all have a camera in some form or other, but most of us just 'take photographs'. A photographer sees something different, challenges himself in the moment to 'create' something, to feel something personal. The result goes far beyond the print. As curator, I want to see glimpses of the person behind the camera - and that is what we have with Neil. As his confidence grows month by month, I think we will be privy to some more amazing shots...

Marsh Mill Pop-up Exhibition poster for some of Thornton's volunteer groups



Call into the Mill tomorrow to speak to some of Thornton's Volunteer groups - catch up on their progress, see their displays and pick up a leaflet about their local activities. Also come and support The Windmill Players who will be taking over the Mill from 10.45am doing role play and having fun!
It was a great atmosphere around the Mill today - with the lovely 'Princesses' dressed up in the square (well done to Linda from La Shack who organised this lovely event) and then the huge wedding reception at Twelve Restaurant with their entertainment from the New York Brass Band for most of the afternoon - not forgetting the perfect weather!

Windmill Land Live Talk cancellation

Unfortunately, Peter Heapy has had to cancel his talk (Windmill Land Live) for Friday 14th, due to ill health. We will hopefully be re-arranging a date in August for those who still want to come. Will update later.
