Video - Heage Windmill, opening by TV weather presenter Sara Blizzard on Saturday 30th March 2013.

Here is my latest local video, filmed on Saturday 30th March 2013. Its of the official opening ceremony of Heage Windmill by BBC TV Weather presenter Sara Blizzard.

If you live in Derbyshire then I'm sure you know Sara Blizzard from BBC's East Midlands Today as she has presented the weather on this show for 13 years now and always brings a warm smile to the weather forecast what ever the weather.

The weather for the opening was nice and sunny as you will see in my video. She arrived on a vintage tractor which she drove along the narrow drive down to the mill. After posing for photographs she raised the Union Jack flag up the pole.
Then she performed the ribbon cutting to open the 12th season at Heage Windmill.
Then she operated the controls to close all of the shutters on all of the sails which makes the sails turn.
