Since we opened our doors in 2011, one of our missions has been to help and support local groups looking to grow. We’re so proud to have worked with so many creative and passionate local people, who’ve incubated their ideas at The Mill with the help of a community competition prize. They’ve brought amazing new activities and workshops to engage the whole community and have brought thousands of new visitors through our doors.
We’ve learned so much in the last six years of what works (and what doesn’t!), and have honed our approach with feedback from our competition winners. Over the years, we’ve tried different prize packages for the competitions, added a pop-up model, and trained dedicated community mentors.
We’re pleased to announce that shortly we’ll be launching our new community competition funded by St James Big Lottery and the Co-operative. Watch this space!
