By now you will have heard, or seen pictures like this, of the tragic devastation at Mostert’s Mill in Mowbray, Cape Town. Most Capetonians will be deeply saddened by the loss of an iconic landmark that has been a familiar feature of the Mother City throughout our lives.

The Friends of Mostert’s Mill, a non-profit and public benefit association, plans to do everything they can to return the Mill to working condition.

"We hope that with time and hard work, we can first restore the outward appearance of the Mill, then work on replacing all the internal wooden machinery to get it functioning again."

"We invite you, as someone who has visited the Mill in the past, to contribute to this campaign. If you have any special expertise, or sources of the kind of materials we will need, let us know."
