The Mill is influenced by its rich heritage as the site of a former cotton mill – but has a vision focused firmly on the future.

As well as being a welcoming café and social hub open to all, The Mill also offers information and light-touch therapies in a relaxed environment, tailored to those facing life-shortening illnesses.

Building work began in the summer of 2019 to extend The Mill because demand exceeds capacity at peak times, and we often have to turn disappointed customers away. The extension will create extra seating and tables in a flexible space that can also be used for private functions like baby showers, birthdays and funeral receptions. A new modular shop will also be created.

This autumn we’re excited to launch an exclusive new membership scheme – ‘The Mill Cornerstones’ invites customers and hospice supporters to pledge a gift to invest in the extension of The Mill.

We’re asking people to join with us and play a personal part in the development of St Catherine’s Park for the benefit of our community, now and in the future.

In return for their generous gift, the names of Cornerstones members will be celebrated on a unique commemorative feature in situ at The Mill. We want to publically recognise members’ contributions to the ongoing success of The Mill – and in turn the sustainability of the hospice charity – in a striking piece of art that will be enjoyed for many years to come.
