Kathleen, Mrs. Sprague For services to Coldharbour Working Wool Museum, Devon
78yrs old (Cullompton, Devon)
She has been instrumental in the continuing success and upkeep of Coldharbour Working Wool Museum. Her association with the museum began in 1990, when she became a member of the mill's support group, Friends of Coldharbour Mill. In 1995 she became its Chair, and has led a series of changes and improvements. Built in 1799 by Thomas Fox, Coldharbour Mill is Devon's last surviving spinning mill from the Georgian era. It still continues today to produce both worsted and woollen knitting yarns and the mill also weaves its own cloths including the popular Devon, Somerset and Blackdown Hills Tartans. Coldharbour Mill has been a registered museum and charity since 1982 and is both a unique piece of social and industrial history and a popular tourist attraction. She is responsible for over 100 volunteers who form a strong, efficient and dedicated group to run the mill. In 2004 she led the fundraising to restore the mill's 1821 water wheel. When completed in 2005, it was the only wheel in Britain still operating in-situ, in its original wheelhouse. She has led the introduction of a number of exhibitions including Fox Exhibition Gallery, the Culm Valley Millennium Screen, the Carpenter's Workshop and 1940s Air Raid Shelter, which have all brought history to life in the mill. In addition to her work with the mill, she is also a churchwarden at St Mary's Church in Burlescombe, a post she has held for over six years.
