Knit and Natter Group and Jewellery Classes, for more information click the two attachments below.


Jewellery Class

The 2 Peters are not the most capable on Facebook and the like and we’d love a Social Media volunteer who could spend perhaps a couple of hours a week keeping us up to date!



The Old Saw Mill is becoming a very busy place as you’ll see from today’s eMill, we now have 2 paid cooks Alex and Yvonne and the café is busy every day. The 2 Peters need to clone at least another one! If you are interested, please contact either Peter and have a chat about what’s entailed!

Member News

The member’s gift for April will be a £3 discount on a lunch from our delicious menu, as well as your usual 10% member discount.


Have you joined yet? If not follow the link below or call in for an application form (Back River St).
For a membership form, click here.

All volunteers are invited to become members as a reward for their hard work!


As victims of our own success we need to expand the OSM team. Can you spare a couple of hours each week to help us in the downstairs café?


Veg box scheme:

We have an opportunity to set up a veg box scheme of locally grown food and veg, if it’s something that might interest you, drop us an email or pop in and see us.



Please keep in mind that there is no parking immediately outside Old Saw Mill. There is a small car park opposite, which is generally full and plenty of parking close by in Antrobus St. Car Park, Princess St. and Rope Walk Car Parks.
