A SPECTACULAR design delighted visitors to the annual Heage Windmill Well Dressing on Sunday, July 17.

Volunteer Margaret Bonsall, who designed the well, wanted to reflect the fact that this year is the tenth anniversary of the windmill opening.

The design, which featured the mill in the centre of a huge number 10, delighted the Rev Derek Beech, associate priest at St Luke’s Church in Heage.

Alan Gifford, a volunteer at the mill, said: “Despite rather inclement weather a good crowd gathered and marvelled at how the skill of the workers, coupled with the use natural materials, could result in such a beautiful image.”
