Join the Friends

Prince Edward meets Friends and Volunteers of Heage Windmill

Join the Friends and belong to something special

There are many benefits if you become a Friend:

For an annual subscription, members receive a membership card which enables free visits to the mill for the holder during the regular weekend and bank holiday opening times during the summer season, so you will never be stuck for things to do in Derby.

An exclusive newsletter The Grist is also delivered. This informs members of recent news, future events, and other items of interest either at the windmill or related to mills, milling, flour etc.

There is a calendar of social and special events which all members are invited to join in if they so wish.

Volunteers who help at the mill are drawn from the membership of the Friends.

The membership fees for 2024 are as follows:

Concessionary                      £7.00 (this includes all over 60s and anyone with a current/valid student card)

Ordinary                                 £8.00 (this is for single person membership)

Family                                     £16.00 (this includes 2 adult members and 2 young members of a family (under 16)

All the money raised from membership helps to maintain funding for keeping the windmill running and catering for the needs of our visitors.

The volunteers who help to staff and look after the windmill are all members of the Friends. If you would like to become a volunteer Miller, Guide, Shop Staff or general helper,  you must be a member.

For information about volunteering look on Volunteering at Heage Windmill

All volunteers must be members but members need not be volunteers.
