I refer to the article 'Living sustainability' (NCE 7 November). The High Wycombe Society's restoration of the Pann Watermill was in fact assisted by only two of MWH's staff - Ms Giogetti, the environment officer, and Mr Gillet, an engineer.
Although the physical and financial help given by MWH was much appreciated, the Society's volunteers have been working on the mill every other Sunday for nearly 20 years and several have become competent millwrights.
If MWH genuinely wants to be involved in sustainable activities at High Wycombe, I suggest it do the following:
Design a garden rainwater tank to collect all roof water with a solar pump for washing and watering.
Survey all roads for a safe walking space on a verge and a cycle track on wide main road verges and persuade the county council to build them.
lDesign a cycling/walking route to cross the M40 at Handy Cross, so that the old road to Marlow can be reached safely and persuade the county council to build this.
Design a four compartment wheely bin with each part colour coded to take glass, metal, plastic, dirty paper etc.
This list probably applies to many other places in Britain.
