Christmas Lunch.

Christmas Lunch comes in 3 forms at The Old Saw Mill this year:

On Christmas Day we’ll serve Christmas Lunch to those who would otherwise be on their own, price £12 but as previous years’ sponsorship for the lunches could happen and reduce the price on the day.
The Meals on Wheels service we established over lockdowns will deliver Christmas Lunch on Christmas Eve, Friday 24th
And during the month of December, we’ll have Christmas lunch on the menu every day but please book beforehand, price £10 including pudding, cracker included!

Apples! Apples! Apples!

Our plea for apples has been extremely successful so far and we would like to thank everyone who has participated in donating and collecting the apples.

However, our plea is not yet over, and we are still requesting any apples of your own, or from others you may know with excess apples in their gardens, and we would be very happy to come and collect these apples from you.

Pie, Pint and Music Night!

Friday 22nd October marked the return of our first band night since lockdown with John Lindley and the Poachers performing at The Old Saw Mill for Pie, Pint and Music Night.

26 people enjoyed an excellent evening filled with music from John and his poachers and good food provided by The Old Saw Mill. The success of the night raised more than £100 for Save the Children.

Many thanks to John and The Poachers for their amazing music and to all the people who came to show their support. We hope we will be sharing a night like this again very soon at The Saw Mill.

Home cooked meals!

As the cold weather begins to creep in our café and upstairs kitchen have been cooking up a storm of their own to keep you warm at Lunchtime here at The Old Saw Mill.

It’s not only our specials that are going down a treat, but our Lunch club service is still successfully providing meals once a week for 60+ individuals who are socially isolated in their homes. Thank you to everyone involved in making this service possible.

Our Visit with the Prince’s Trust

We are currently having a visit from the Prince’s Trust who are group of young individuals furthering their prospects and widening their futures through a two-week placement here with us at the Old Saw Mill.
The group of volunteers working with us have just completed their first week and we are extremely pleased with the work they’ve completed so far decorating our upstairs accommodation. We are also extremely grateful for the help they have given us by picking and collecting a large number of apples so we can continue our apple juice and cider production.

‘Girl in Isolation’

The 7th and 8th of October marked our first joint venture with West Kingston Productions (WKP) for the one woman show of ‘Girl in Isolation’.
Not only was this our first time working alongside WKP, but our first large event post lockdown. To all be gathered, celebrating talent at the Old Saw Mill with members of our community did not disappoint. West Kingston Productions put on an excellent show and the long-anticipated atmosphere was beyond what any of us imagined.
The response was extremely positive, and the intimate event received many compliments, even receiving a mention in The Chronicle. The night entailed drinks and a two-course meal of tapas and dessert provided by the Old Saw Mill and an excellent play from West Kingston Productions over the two evenings.
Although this was our first time working together it certainly won’t be the last and we hope to be working together again very soon. We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved and we can’t wait to see what’s next on the cards!
