New Frogmore centre looks good on Paper; LEISURE.
The seven figure deal has enabled The Paper Trail, which is the charitable trust that owns the mill, to open the new centre offering visitors the opportunity to learn more about the heritage of the mill, provide exhibition facilities, a cafe and educational exhibits for school parties and visitors.
The deal follows a pounds 1 million Lottery donation to fund the paper mill's restoration programme, and provide modern public access facilities for 50,000 visitors a year.
Jacky Bennett, chief executive of The Paper Trail, the charitable trust that owns and operates Frogmore Paper Mill, said: "The deal has enabled us to move forward with our extensive development plans for the attraction and launch our fantastic new visitor centre. The paper mill now offers visitors of all ages even more to see and do and will help secure the future of this important part of our industrial heritage."
Zena Hadley, senior relationship manager at Alliance & Leicester Commercial Bank's West Midlands Business Centre said: "We are delighted to be able to help The Paper Trail to maintain and develop this important historical attraction. We put together a tailored package specifically designed for their development plans and seasonal income."
