500 Club


The aim of the 500 Club is to provide a painless way of raising much needed funds for The Friends of Coldharbour Mill who use it to support Coldharbour Mill.

Each month there is a draw, and a prize pot is distributed between 4 lucky members and the same amount paid to the Friends. Currently £200 is distributed each month.

Lists of winners are published in the monthly Uffculme
Spotlight magazine and the Friends of Coldharbour Mill’s quarterly Newsletter.

Friends of Coldharbour Mill

Join us and help to support Coldharbour Mill!

The Friends of Coldharbour Mill is an association of people who support the Mill, chiefly by raising funds for projects.

As a separate registered charity (No: 289991) the Friends are also able to provide third-party support funding to the Trust for grant applications.

Your support can be as simple as paying the annual subscription, especially if you live a distance from the Mill.  However, members who live close by can also help with fundraising activities, including coffee mornings, quizzes and other events, and by serving as members of the committee of trustees.

We welcome everyone – membership is unrestricted and simply requires payment of the appropriate annual subscription, as agreed at the AGM held each March.

The current annual subscription is £15 per person or £37 for a family of four.

Members receive a quarterly Newsletter and other updates about the Mill.

Other benefits include:

  • 50% discount on standard day entry price
  • 25% discount on Steam Day entry price
  • 10% discount on Mill products in the Mill Shop

on production of a valid membership card at the Mill Reception.

For an additional £5 per person, Friends can also take advantage of all the extra benefits of Mill Membership – instead of paying the full £20 fee.
These benefits include unlimited FREE entry to the Mill, including Steam Days.

So come on in and help us to support this heritage treasure!
