Bukit Lawang Trust run a free education centre in the village of Bukit Lawang in Indonesia.
This was built with the help of Jersey Overseas Aid by a team of 14 islanders, 10 years ago now.
The Trust offers a free kindergarten and free english and conservation lessons every day for children and adults. The Trust also runs Conservation Education for the local community who work in the Gunung Leuser National Park. This is the place where you can find the rare Sumatran Orangutans that we have at Durrell here in Jersey.
Volunteers from Jersey regularly take up two month placements where they teach the children english and conservation and learn about protecting the Gunung Leuser National park.
Open Mills Weekend with National Trust of Jersey
Le Moulin de Quétivel will be open to visitors from 10am to 5pm on 14 May as part of National Mills Weekend.
This is a rare opportunity to come and watch the entire milling process from start to finish (in previous years milling has been conducted behind closed doors, with no access to the general public). Visitors start their visit at the Mill Pond, where they can watch the Rangers open the sluice gates, then they can follow the water as it travels along the leat and finally admire the ancient waterwheel, which was fully restored last year, as it springs into action. Inside our very own Miller will be on hand to answer any questions. Free guided walks to neighbouring Tesson Mill will operate throughout the day.
About Le Moulin de Quétivel: Quétivel Mill is the only remaining working watermill on the Island. Records suggest that there has been a mill on the site since 1309, however the current building dates from the 18th century. After falling into disrepair, Quétivel Mill was restored by the National Trust for Jersey in the 1970s and reopened its doors to the public in 1979.
About National Mills Weekend: An annual festival of the UK’s milling heritage, this is a wonderful opportunity for everyone to explore their local windmills and watermills. The weekend is coordinated by the Mills Section of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB). National Mills Weekend is a wonderful opportunity for local people to look inside Le Moulin de Quétivel and find out more about the role of the mill in local life over the centuries, including during the Occupation.
National Mills Weekend also marks the start of Real Bread Week, run by the Real Bread Campaign, which encourages people to bake or buy traditionally made bread.
We are delighted to welcome artisan baker Darren Wallser along this year, who will be baking bread at the mill throughout the day. In addition, he will be running a breadmaking workshop at Quétivel Mill on 21 May and 24 September.
Visitors to the mill will have the chance to participate in a guided walk to neighbouring Tesson mill, meet our very own miller, learn about breadmaking – and enjoy refreshments in our newly refurbished tearoom.
Catherine Ward, House and Collections Manager for the National Trust for Jersey said: “National Mills Weekend is a fantastic opportunity for people to explore their local heritage, and we look forward to welcoming visitors.”
