On Sunday 24th June the Wrawby Windmill Society held a Family Fun Day at the mill on one of the hottest days of the year so far!
We were delighted to have about 300 visitors, many from the village, who came and enjoyed a BBQ, ice cream (most welcome!), raffle, tombola, children’s games, cake stall manned by the Wrawby Make & Sale Group and more.
There were many stationary engines, classic cars and old tractors for people to admire and of course have a tour around the mill. There was only enough wind to turn the sails occasionally but the bunting looked lovely fluttering between the sails and made up for the lack of sail movement!
The day made a profit of £576 for the mill and we thank all those who came to support this event from the locality and further afield. A date for your diary is Sunday 30th June 2019 for a repeat event which we hope will be just as successful.
We would also like to thank all our neighbours on Mill Lane for their continued help and support in making the day a success.
In the meantime if anyone wishes to get involved in volunteering at the mill do get in touch with Susan Day on 01652 653699 or by e-mail
