Love New Mills

The ever popular ‘Show The Love’ green hearts celebration for Valentine’s weekend returns to New Mills.

Local artist and festival volunteer Deborah Pitman says “The displays last year were beautiful individual expressions of love for the green spaces around us and our green planet. We dressed windows, doors, walls and gardens, all looking stunning. Let’s create some magic again this year!”

Deborah had the idea for the town to link in with the UK-wide “Show the Love” initiative organised by the Climate Coalition. Held every February, it’s an annual celebration of everything we care about and want to protect from the worst impacts of the climate crisis and during which politicians are asked to put aside their differences and tackle the climate crisis.

Festival Director and Home Farm Project Manager Toby Hardwick says “The #ShowTheLoveNewMills green heart trail is another way of coming together to celebrate the fantastic New Mills community spirt. Our ‘growing local’  Home Farm New Mills project is in to its second year now and encourages more of us to connect with the seasons and the soil. This year we’re offering wild flower seeds too, so heart-shaped planting could be a great option ”
