Holgate Windmill Challenge Badge

We are excited to announce here our newest addition to the Mini Miller range of activities, the "Holgate Windmill Challenge Badge" award. Children can earn this badge by completing a range of activities at home by themselves or at school, Brownies, Cubs, Mini Millers sessions etc. The activities are designed for children to gain the widest appreciation of our windmill from a variety of perspectives so they must complete activities from the four categories of "Food & Baking", "Design & Technology", "History & Art" and "Get Crafty". Once the children have shown us their proud achievements, the embroidered badges can be purchased for £1.50 either at the mill or posted out. We are grateful to our colleagues at Heckington Windmill in Lincolnshire for their support in helping us set up this badge. So what are you waiting for? Email minimillers@holgatewindmill.org for a copy of the Activity Sheet and start creating!" ...
