Apart from paying for food and drinks this was a free event.
Everyone - children, teenagers, adults - were soon singing
and dancing to the carols and songs.
The mill itself was open to look around,
not very Christmassy or exciting on the outside...
... but inside it had been transformed by volunteers into the most amazing
and atmospheric Santa's workshop we had ever seen.
There were so many little details and notes everywhere you looked.
The flour shoots had been transformed to deliver presents into sacks
to help the elves in their preparations for Christmas eve.
The grinding wheel processing presents.
Santa's glass of milk
So on a dull December day when I was least expecting it,
I found that magic and sparkle.
I hope all your Christmas wishes came true.
