Santa came to Heage Windmill

by Amber Valley Info on Monday 3 December 2018

After a week of very mixed weather, which made preparation difficult at times, Sunday (2nd Dec) dawned cloudy and a bit damp, but mostly dry and mild.

This was important because Santa Claus was coming to Heage Windmill and  duly arrived at 11-00am, on a motorised sledge, (kindly loaned by Amber Valley Rotary Club) to be greeted by a crowd of happy and excited youngsters. Helped by the mill’s head Elf (Lynn Allen) he soon made himself comfortable in his special grotto on the ground floor of the windmill. The excited children were able to see him in turn (as result of a numbered ticket scheme which worked very well) and during his visit he saw over 130 children, each of whom received a specially wrapped present from him. As he rested afterwards he said ‘They were the best set of children I have seen this year!’

During the day over 500 visitors came to the mill and enjoyed the entertainments and refreshments available in the nearby marquee, and in the mill undercroft. To pass the time while waiting to see Santa there were various games to play, raffles and food, including a very popular hot food van providing a range of food to suit all tastes. They were also entertained by members of the Notts and Derby Rock Choir , suitably bedecked in Santa hats,  and who sang many seasonable songs
