Our Annual General Meeting will be on Tuesday 24th May in the evening. Proceedings start at Tam O’Shanter Urban Farm at 7 pm. After the business of the AGM (including the election of office bearers), guest speaker Ken Clarke will tell us all about the Windmills and Watermills of Wirral. All welcome.
In 2016, the Windmill will open to the public at 10 am on the first Saturday of every month from April to September. Last entry is at 11:45. Height restrictions apply. Admission is free, but donations to the Friends of Bidston Hill are welcome. The windmill is closed during the winter, when hibernating bats are in residence.
On Saturday 28th May, Stephen Lyus will lead a walk through the Rhododendrons of Park Wood, which should be in full bloom. Meet at the Windmill at 2pm. The walk is free, but we ask you to register in advance.
