Tags: Excerpts from the Windmill

SASSENHEIM Local windmill enthusiasts belonging to Stichting Molen van Sassenheim still need 800,000 euros and approval from city council to finally replace the wings of the Speelman, which lost them back in 1882. The wingless structure also needs to be raised so the new wings can catch the wind in its sails to become fully operational again by the year 2022. City council also needs to upgrade zoning to accommodate a higher structure.
