  • Romsey Mill will again be one of the charity partners for the Bridge the Gap walk which will  take place on Sunday 10th September.  Last year, over 2,000 took part in the walk around the grounds of Cambridge’s Colleges, helping to raise over £42,000 which was shared between the charities (Arthur Rank Hospice Charity and Romsey Mill). We will share more details when they are announced. However,  we need volunteers on the day to help us with the many tasks involved in running such a big event. If you are interested in helping us, please contact Georgina Forbes  (Email: Georgina.forbes@romseymill.org ; Tel: 01223 566492)
  • On 19th January, about 100 people attended Romsey Mill’s Annual Thanksgiving Service - and heard young people who have benefitted from the work of Romsey Mill speak about their experience. Thank you to all those who came and shared in the celebration.
