The messages, which were in line with the 10th Clap for Carer event, were projected onto the tower of Denver Windmill by J R Light & Sound on Thursday, May 28.

The display was the company’s third illumination for the NHS and key workers.

Owner Jamie Robinson said the location was chosen as the windmill is currently under renovation and he wanted to highlight the historic building.

He said: “The windmill has been a landmark in the village since 1835, over the years it has deteriorated with the loss of its sails several years ago.

“Several residents from the village came out to have a look at the windmill and thanked us for doing it, they said it was lovely to see and appreciated all the hard work me and my team had put into it.”
