Did you receive an email from us in error?

You might have received an email from us that refers to a past garden party event. This is due to a bug that has been discovered in our e-newsletter software system. We are aware of the problem and are working with the software providers to get it fixed as soon as possible. Our policy is not to trouble people with unsolicited emails so please know that we take this matter very seriously. For those of you who have been affected, please accept our apologies and we thank you for your patience in this matter. If you have any questions please get in touch with us at friends@millsarchive.org.
