Bin collections will be one day later than usual after the Bank Holiday weekend.  This includes a collection on Saturday 4 June.

Family Fun

There is lots going on for children and families at Mill Green Museum and the Roman Baths. This is especially true during school holidays when there are many drop-in workshops for children aged 4+.

Adults are not forgotten with frequent craft demonstrations and special event days at the weekends. With limited parking at Mill Green, we encourage visitors to consider using the bus service - there is a bus stop at the top of the footpath that leads to Mill Green.  It's better for the environment and children love catching a bus for a day out!
