But …  you don’t have to join an activity to call in.  Everyone is welcome at The Mill whenever we are open. You can borrow a book from the honesty library, bring your little ones to enjoy all the toys in the playroom, make a cuppa and have a chat – and browse leaflets, flyers and posters on display to  find out what else is going on throughout Waltham Forest. There’s always someone on reception to welcome you and give more information.

Our latest art exhibition – Fabrications – is open to view in the living room. The exhibition explores the possibility of using textiles and other soft materials in all sorts of imaginative, amazing and traditional and undtraditional ways.
