Our first ever rally of Italian Cars – courtesy of Abarth East Midlands & T.I.M UK Motors – proved a great success.
They also brought one the best days we have known at Heage. It felt positively Mediterranean, just like being in Italy…
There was a wide assortment of cars on show including Fiat, Maserati , Ferrari and Lamborghini. The best car on show was judged to be a Fiat 124 Spider, owned by Graham Wickham
The event was jointly organised by the mill and Attila Csorba, representing the car owners – and all profits will go to the windmill maintenance fund.
In addition to the cars, the windmill itself received many visitors who also enjoyed a display of pyrography (burnt wood sketching) and helped swell the windmill’s funds even more at the bric a brac stall.
Please note the wind speed. If it is more than 5 or 6 mph, then normally the sails will be turning.
Heage Windmill is owned by Derbyshire CC but is controlled and operated by Heage Windmill Society, a charitable organisation (Reg Charity No 1065980), to whom all profits from running the windmill are donated by the Friends to help ensure its continued preservation
