    The Woodbridge Tide Mill has been awarded Gold Level Suffolk Carbon Charter
    Following a further assessment of the Mill the Suffolk Carbon Charter panel has decided to renew its Gold level award of the Suffolk Carbon Charter. The award was first given to the Tide Mill in 2015 with a 2018 target of reducing electricity consumption by 15%. The Mill has comfortably beaten that target with a reduction of around 30%.
    The Carbon Charter is awarded to companies that are monitoring and reducing their carbon emissions; it is intended to provide public recognition of those involved in making Suffolk the Greenest County. The Gold Charter is only awarded to those whose are “an exemplar of low carbon management”, and demonstrating significant reductions in carbon emissions and championing the environmental agenda.
    The Panel was very impressed with Woodbridge Tide Mill’s creation of a ‘Green attraction’ in Suffolk. Its carbon footprint as a flour mill appears to be less than half the industry norm. The panel were also impressed with the Tide Mill’s links with local bakers and farm shops to help create a local food economy, and their education of visitors on the value and history of tidal power.
    Nigel Barratt, Miller and Trustee of Woodbridge Tide Mill, said: “This is another feather in the Tide Mill’s cap. It is a remarkable building that exists purely as a result of tidal power. The beautiful old Mill performs many a useful function in this community including milling flour, attracting visitors to Woodbridge and, of course, keeping us in touch with our heritage. We’re very proud that Suffolk Carbon Charter has chosen to recognise the Mill for its environmental significance.”
    He went on to thank the East of England Co-operative Society, one of only two Pathfinder Partners of Suffolk Carbon Charter, who sponsored the Tide Mill for the award, some of whose local stores stock Tide Mill flour.

    Beowulf Festival is a community festival celebrating The Spirit of Beowulf in Woodbridge, Suffolk from May 3rd to 7th 2018 (Early Spring Bank Holiday)

    From the Tide Mill’s perspective we have a few insights as to what may be happening in and around the Tide Mill as we make our plans. There will be a large dragon as part of the weekend experience.  This will be made of plastic collected from the river Deben and surrounding area and is intended to highlight the problem of waste plastic.  It will probably have a mouth through which people can deposit plastic waste and may have smoke coming from its nostrils.

    It is possible that the dragon will be located for part of the weekend on the quay outside the Tide Mill.  There will be an archaeological display which will probably be under a canopy close to the Tide Mill with part of the display encouraging people to visit the Tide Mill as a working museum.

    Final plans have yet to be agreed but there could be a talk at the Tide Mill by a lecturer from Cambridge University on the history of farming locally.

    The finale of the weekend will be a light display extending from the Art Club across the Tide Mill to the river bank on the far side of the Deben!
