One of our wonderful Visit Hillbrush team members, Amber, created an excellent window display last week, right before the blizzards hit Mere! If you haven’t seen it yet you can grab a sneak peek here. Of course nothing beats coming down and seeing it in person because all of these products are available in our shop. While you’re here, why not grab a warm cuppa and a bite to eat? We have just updated our menu.
We wanted to share our delightful brush Christmas trees that we have in the visitor centre and in the lobby of our main facility. The tree features our B1241 in festive red!
Please note that due to a private event taking place at Visit Hillbrush, the visitor centre will be closed to the public between the hours of 10:30am – 12:45pm on Friday 21st July, 2017.
We’re sorry for any inconvenience this causes. We will be reopening at 12:45pm and business will carry on as usual, so we hope to see you in the afternoon for tea and cake and (hopefully) sunshine!
We found some interesting photographs while browsing through our image library. Just look at Hillbrush HQ exactly one year ago! It’s quite a different picture nowadays, with our factory, offices and visitor centre completed, populated and working hard. Relocating to Norwood Park was a massive undertaking at the time, and we appreciate the patience and kindness of the residents of Mere and the surrounding area while we made the leap.
Voting closes soon for the Muddy Stilettos Awards 2017 and we would really appreciate your votes for our visitor centre, Visit Hillbrush, which is in the Best Cafe in Wiltshire category. We are so happy to be nominated in the first place, and as a brand new venture this would be a fantastic boost for us. From the Muddy Stilettos website:
Muddy Stilettos is the biggest and most influential lifestyle blog in Wiltshire, with over 100,000 discerning, intelligent, fun-loving AB women nationally every month (30-55 years) reading our advice on where to go and what to do with their precious free time.
Thank you to those of you who have already voted! Please spread the word.
