Latest Windmill News
Omne trium perfectum - more commonly known as the rule of three principle. It suggests that things that come in threes are inherently more humorous, satisfying and effective than any other number of things. Well, you could have fooled me! Three lockdowns, three Windmill closures and only two re-openings to date. Let’s hope that the next Windmill re-opening is indeed the third and final one, that the roll-out of the vaccine brings Covid under control and that all the many and varied activities at the Windmill can once again become part of everybody’s weekly schedule.
In the meantime, an exciting and very welcome development is the installation of two new public electric vehicle (EV) charging points to the rear of the Windmill building - a first in Deddington! We are very grateful to a local private donor and the Parish Council for making this possible. The charging network is NewMotion (a member of the Shell group) and by the time this edition of the DN is published, both EV charge points should be up and running. Growth in the use of electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids continues unabated and they now account for more than 10% of new car sales in the UK. Look out for further announcements on our website and on social media.
Finally, a belated ‘Happy New Year’ to everybody. We really look forward to welcoming you back to the Windmill soon.
Vaughan Jones, Chair
