Visit New Mills – AGM report 2024

24 February 2024


Visit New Mills continues to support all local Community groups and businesses and also facilitates events and projects in New Mills

All events in 2023 were delivered successfully – however, funding and volunteering remains challenging – New Mills Carnival, Youth Festival, Lights Switch On, weekly Quizits and regular community cinema continue to thrive.

Our web site and social media instances are growing well and continue to be the first point of contact for visitors – we have recently started to use TikTok.
