Work is progressing well as we extend The Mill
Work is underway to extend and your favourite café!
The extension will provide room for another 30 customers in a dual-use space which will also be available to hire as a function room, since the café also has over-demand for private bookings for occasions like funeral receptions, birthday celebrations and baby showers.
The plans include a new shop and for new storage and welfare facilities to be built in place of the existing out-buildings which are in poor condition.
This is exciting phase two will build on The Mill’s success in opening up the hospice to the local community, and in providing another source of regular income which is so important to the long-term sustainability of the charity, since all profits are donated to St Catherine’s.
Some funding has been sourced via charitable grants and trusts, and some capital will be borrowed in order to invest in the project. We’ve also launched an exclusive new membership scheme – The Mill Cornerstones – to help fund the work. You can read more about how to get involved here.
