A new cafe is to open in the grounds of St Catherine’s Hospice in late November.Advertisement
Named The Mill it will have rooms for community use alongside coffee and cake.
Stephen Greenhalgh, Chief Executive at St Catherine’s Hospice, said: “The Mill is a pioneering new resource which is set to benefit people on many different levels – from a listening ear and friendly face offering relevant advice, to a place to meet friends or host a business meeting.
”Fundraising is particularly tough at this time, so we need The Mill to attract new supporters to help us generate the millions we need to care for local people facing cancer, motor neurone disease and other life-shortening illnesses.”
The cafe opens to the public on Monday 24 November, and is to host activities including yoga and pilates in the grounds of St Catherine’s Park.
Construction of the Mill has been undertaken by local firm the Eric Wright Group.
Mark Smith, construction manager at Eric Wright Special Projects, said: “We were delighted to be given the opportunity to work on this project for the hospice, from start to completion it has been an excellent team effort from the client, designers to all the sub-contract trades involved working together to produce this excellent facility which will be a huge success for St Catherine’s.”
