Dave Myers

The Hairy Bikers came and spent a day at Heage Windmill, talking to Tim and Anthony (Millers) and Lynn about the many aspects of volunteering at Heage Windmill, including of course the milling process. Both Dave and Si were encouraging and calming, and so the filming and commentary were a success.

Their professionalism and experience did not prevent them from being helpful and understanding, two true gentlemen. Later, when all of us at the mill saw the Heage Windmill excerpt in the programme, we were impressed at how Dave and Si had captured the essence of Heage Windmill, and there was the bonus footage of them using Heage Windmill flour to make oat cakes. Today, years later, the Hairy Bikers are still mentioned in the Visitor Book.

That Dave has passed away has saddened us all. To have known him for that
one day was a privilege. Our thoughts and condolences are with the family and friends. Dave will be remembered at Heage Windmill.
