Lisa Delaney of Burwell is the lucky winner of our £50 prize draw. She and her partner Jamie Mason and daughter Jasmine, five, picked up the cheque outside Burwell Museum Mill on a sunny Saturday morning.

Lisa said: 'It's a great boost to win this £50 before Christmas! We all love coming to Burwell Museum. I often bring Jasmine for the children's craft days which she and her friends really enjoy.’ Lisa was one of many local people who filled in a questionnaire to tell us what they’d like to see happening at the Museum in the future. ‘We’d love more hands-on activities and interactives – and of course a cafĂ©!' she said.

'We are delighted that Lisa and her family are the lucky winners of our prize draw,’ said Paul Hawes, Chairman of Trustees. ‘We’ve had a very positive and interesting response from the questionnaire and hope to be able to put many of these ideas into operation so people can learn more about their local heritage.'

Burwell Museum Trust is currently in the development stage to secure a Heritage Lottery Grant of around £350,000 to restore the Mill to authentic working condition so it can be used as an educational resource for the village and visitors.
