Windmill ‘in mourning’ for Bill McKelvie

Bill McKelvie singlehandedly painted the roundhouse and outer roundhouse over a number of days in the summer of 2009.  He became a regular volunteer painting and applying preservative to the mill. He passed away on the 4th November and his warmth and generosity of spirit is much missed. The sweeps were placed in the ‘mourning’ position by the volunteers as a mark of respect.
