Bromham Mill & Café: latest update
Firstly, please can we extend a sincere thank you to everyone that has responded so passionately to the series of Facebook posts calling for support to keep the mill and café open.
We, like you, consider the mill and café to be a hub of the community and all of us thoroughly enjoy and fully appreciate everything the facility has to offer. So many individuals, whether it be paid staff, volunteers or members of the public have worked incredibly hard to make the facility what it is today.
For the last four years, perhaps unbeknown to the community, the Parish Council has been locked in negotiations with the borough council to secure our own lease for the facility. A lease that would give us full autonomy to run the facility as we saw fit and ultimately to maximize the benefit it could bring to Bromham and the wider community.
To a large extent the future of the mill and café rests on our ability to secure this lease and subsequent to our Parish Council meeting last night when we discussed the future of the mill and café, the Mayor of Bedford has made contact with us to see how we can move discussions forward. This is a really positive outcome and as soon as we have more information to share with you we will.
In the meantime, should you have any further enquiries please contact us by email: [email protected].
Thank you again for your support.
