I still think it’s a great project, pity the Council are having to chip in, this project is much more deserving of Lottery funding than the HGB project, IMHO of course

Whilst I wish it every success, I have my reservations and if I lived in NNDC area, I think I would have more!! Thats quite a lot of money that for example, could go on rural bus services - I like the idea of a National Millwrighting Centre but its ok having the craftsmen, but you still have to have to find the additional funding for every new mill you have to restore.
Historically there has been a distinct lack of money going into mills, yet a lot of mills/pumps around requiring in total grillions.
The cynic in me would say that this is just a new twist on an old tale with not enough money is spent on old mills.
So NNDC taxpayers - lets hope there are guaranteed repayments or it might just be frittered away on not a lot!!

I am inclined to be neutral on this one though there needs to be some way of protecting historic buildings on a long term basis I have a booklet from the 1970s somewhere listing most of the Norfolk/Suffolk mills which lists the grants which saved them.
For the record District Councils do not fund general bus subsidy that is the function of County and Unitary Councils but that is another story (Locals see recent EDP reports)

As a NNCD taxpayer, I find this to be a very positive move. I am not particularly concerned about the money, as it will be a commercial loan and the amount, compared to the Council’s overall annual budget, is not particularly significant.

While the work is taking place, there will be job opportunities. Once completed, there will be a number of different features, such as a fully working mill, holiday accommodation, café, shop and bakery, plus the core academies, which will be a new visitor attraction.

Good on ‘em, I say.

Pally - I agree entirely but at the back of my mind I recall a conversation with the late Vincent Pargeter who as a millwright, was always complaining he never had enough to do , and he covered Norfolk and Suffolk! He used to say lots of people had good ideas but b****er all money! The BA have also had various schemes to train millwrights and indeed,I think they might be in the midst of one now.

The last lot took the sails off Clayrack Mill at How Hill with the intention of getting that working again, but that was a few years ago and they have not appeared again!

I take your point about the size of the loan though and wish the whole thing well - but it does not stop me feeling a little cynical. I do hope I am wrong.

Harlequin, your post is an excellent demonstration of why there is so little punctuation in legislation.

Original: I also pay NNDC council tax and like Paladine am not concerned with the arrangement.

OR: I also pay NNDC council tax and, like Paladine, am not concerned with the arrangement.

OR: I also pay NNDC council tax and like Paladine. am not concerned with the arrangement.

Nothing missing on my keyboard MM.
Just bits of my brain!
Any of my posts that happen after midnight are very prone to dodgy punctuation, spelling and grammar. I usually write them on the way home from work or just after I arrive. Always when the brain is in iffy mode.
