A thriving community

Our community is a vibrant place to live, work, and play. With a rich history rooted in mills, our town has grown into a bustling hub of activity where people from all walks of life come together to connect, socialise, and make memories.

From festivals to carnivals, there are always events happening that bring residents together and welcome newcomers. Whether you’re grabbing a coffee at the local cafe or catching up on the latest gossip at one of our many parks or recreational areas, you’ll find that everyone is eager to welcome you into the community.

New Mills has lots of projects that demonstrate its commitment to finding better ways to create a more sustainable future by working collaboratively together. From the Community Orchard, Fields to Fabric textile project and the Repair Café, there are lots of ways to take part and benefit.  Millers’ Refillers is a well-stocked zero waste shop where you can fill your own containers with groceries, toiletries and cleaning products.  The monthly Quizit pub quiz raises thousands for good causes, and the Torrs Hydro turbine produces green energy.
