£10K Grant from DCC Boosts Heage Windmill Repairs

Cllr Dean Collins, of Derbyshire County Council, presented a cheque for £10,000 to Heage Windmill’s TAMA appeal, in front of a small crowd of Friends and supporters. He said it was important to get this popular tourist attraction, which is run entirely by volunteers, back in action as soon as possible. He also delivered a formal lease 99 year for the mill to the Trust, thus helping to ensure the long term future of the mill.

During the morning the sails, which had been re-furbished and painted by mill volunteers, were brought back to mill site on a special lorry, loaned by local company J.C Balls.

They will be hoisted into position as soon as the millwrights have completed their work and it is expected the mill will be in action again before the end of April.
