The catering team behind a successful café launched by St Catherine’s Hospice will be cooking up a storm at this year’s Royal Lancashire Show.

The Mill Outside, the outside catering arm to The Mill Café which opened in the grounds of St Catherine’s Park last year, will set up a pop-up café within the show ground over the course of the event at Salesbury Hall in Ribchester next weekend.

“We’ve been pleased to work with people in the community to help them host their own special occasions, and are looking forward to developing the service further in the area”

The event will also count as one of the 30 special occasions The Mill Outside is hoping to cater for in 2015 – their target in the 30th anniversary Give A Gift campaign, run in conjunction with the Lancashire Evening Post and the Chorley and Leyland Guardian.

Nicola Hanmer, commercial catering manager at The Mill, said: “We have had an extremely busy summer catering for our programme of 30th anniversary events, including providing the food for the VIP marquees at this year’s Symphony at the Tower.

“We’ve also been pleased to work with people in the community to help them host their own special occasions, and are looking forward to developing the service further in the area.

“We can cater for all kinds of events covering everything from buffets and barbecues to sit-down meals and afternoon teas. The crucial point is that The Mill and The Mill Outside operate as a social enterprise – with all profits raised coming back to support the specialised care of St Catherine’s Hospice.

“We’re excitedly working towards our Give A Gift appeal target and would love to hear from anyone who has something special to celebrate in the coming months – we’re sure we can work with them to make it a great success.”

The Royal Lancashire Show runs on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, August 7 to 9.
