The Bank Mill project was introduced at the well-attended Penicuik Community Development Trust AGM in June 2010, and was featured at Saturday Open House exhibitions in the Town Hall.  The Trust’s initial letter to interested parties on the Bank Mill project followed in August 2010. The project was first discussed with the Big Lottery Fund at Loanhead on 7 September, and presented at Penicuik Community Council on 13 September where it was greeted with enthusiasm.  The expanded proposals formed part of a joint exhibition with Penicuik’s Town Twinning visit to L’Isle sur la Sorgue in Penicuik Town Hall on 11 and 18 September, in conjunction with the display at Penicuik Library.

 

To begin the first stage of the Mill’s regeneration, the Trust has taken up a lease of a years occupation from October 2010 with a view to purchase of Bank Mill, lades and Fish Farm as soon as possible.  As noted above, over 100 people came to a public meeting in Penicuik Town Hall on Tuesday 23 November 2010, more  public workshops to get involved in both the Trust’s Bank Mill Project and Walled Garden Food Project were held in Penicuik Town Hall on Wednesday 15 December, a big fundraising ceilidh was held in Bank Mill on Hogmanay, and a fundraiser winetasting at Penicuik Arts in February.  .  An all-star Bank Mill Benefit (poster here) is being held at the Mill on Monday 4th April 2011 with Ferintosh (New York cellist Abby Newton, Wisconsin harpist Kim Robertson and Edinburgh fiddler Mairi Campbell) plus special guest Penicuik’s own singer Siobhan Miller.  Information on the projects and tickets for events are always available at the Trust’s weekly Open House Sessions on Saturdays 10am-2pm and at the Trust’s Big Screen Cinema sessions on Sunday evenings –details of upcoming events here.

 

This is a big investment for our community.  As well as donations and loans the Trust is looking for help of all kinds from people of all ages with practical skills and ideas to help us develop and realise this exciting project. We will be delighted to record any help you are able to give. Through our unpaid internships the Trust can offer testimonials to those who contribute their time and energy in ways which take the project forward.
