Santa arrives on a truck

Santa had real problem to get to the windmill when he arrived in Heage. The coach and horses had let him down at the last minute. But, ever resourceful, Santa saw a breakdown truck from Ripley, rushed over and explained he had to get to the mill by 12pm or would disappoint a lot of children. He duly arrived, in style, on a large break down truck! Heage windmill reopens on Good Friday, although flour is still on sale on the second Saturday of each month from 10am to 1pm.
