Mini Millers

There are plenty of ways for children to enjoy our windmill and we actively encourage “Mini Millers” to get involved. 

In 2023, the Mini Miller enjoyed an Easter treasure hunt, dough modelling at West Bank Park summer fair and a ghostly activity trail for Halloween. Santa visits the mill in December which is always a highlight for Mini Millers.
