Celebrate Christmas in style at the Mill


We’re gearing up for a host of festive fun for all the family to enjoy this Christmas, at the Mill café in the grounds of St Catherine’s Park.

From festive parties, seasonal Afternoon Teas and Tea with Father Christmas there’s something for everyone.

Our homemade mince pies and Christmas puddings will be available from Monday November 28th in the café and hospice reception shop to take away.

Monday December 5th marks the start of our Christmas gingerbread house build. Watch our patisserie chef create a gingerbread house from scratch until Friday December 23rd.

Commercial Catering Manager, Nicola Hanmer, said: “We’re really excited to welcome the community to the Mill this festive period. From festive lunches and dinners to Christmas Afternoon Tea, Light up a Life Service and Tea with Father Christmas there’s something for all the community to get involved in.”
