Vital Funds Raised at Autumn Fair & Carols in the Millyard

Dec 18, 2017

Carols in the millyardThe Trust were delighted to raise over £700 at the annual Green’s Windmill Autumn Fair, held on 11th November. Almost 400 visitors attended the three-hour event, which featured 22 stalls, windmill tours and pizzas made in the community garden pizza oven. Then, at the annual Carols on 16th December, 750 visitors sang along with the Nottingham Ukulele Club and the Arnold branch of the Salvation Army. Hot dogs, mushy peas and mince pies, made with Green’s Mill flour by our friend Baz at Bake Off and Pie, were enjoyed by the large crowd, while mulled wine kept the chill at bay.

Almost £1,100 was raised for the charity, which is a great boost during what can otherwise be a slow month. The money from both events will help us to keep the mill open and operating. Again, a huge thanks to all the stall holders who attended, all the people who visited and donated and all the volunteers that helped make these two events such a great success and ones to remember.
