We dropped in to the soft opening of the silk mill in Whitchurch last Saturday. It’s been closed for a massive refurbishment for about 18 months or so and we were eager to see the result. I have to say it now looks really splendid. The internal layout works much better with improved access and display space. There’s lots more for the kids to do as well. The shop has been remodelled to accommodate a lovely well designed cafe and the whole lot has been given a smart spruce up. The team of volunteers and trustees have done a great job both raising the money needed and piloting the project. They’ve brilliantly breathed new life into this local institution that’s right at the heart of the Whitchurch community. Please do visit and see for yourself.
