£10,000 grant gives New Mills service a face lift

A big favourite of Visit New Mills and recent beneficiary of one of our Quizits, New Mills and District Volunteer Centre is set to launch its new and contemporary website this week, thanks to a £10,000 grant.

The money from National Lottery Awards for All has allowed the centre to re-design its branding, including website and social media pages. Flyers have also been produced for distribution across the High Peak, and new computers purchased for service users.


The fresh branding incorporates a new logo showcasing people holding hands in a circle. This alludes to the centre’s ethos, of offering a helping hand to residents who need it most, including those who’re elderly, vulnerable or disabled.

The dark royal blue colour of the centre’s website and social media pages has been discarded, replaced with bright and refreshing purple, orange, pink and green.

The branding revamp has been undertaken by local marketing and design agency Quick Response Marketing.

Ed Mountifield, Centre Manager, said: “I am so pleased that we received the funding and we’ve been able to bring the centre into the 21st century with the upgrade. Our ancient technology was beginning to creak through old age and was becoming virtually unusable!

“The services provided by the volunteer centre have changed. We’ve moved on from being ‘just a volunteer centre’ and now provide a wide range of essential frontline preventative services.”
