BUSINESS owners moving into the Leigh Spinners Mill complex have met up to celebrate the progress of the site's development

Leigh Building Preservation Trust (LBPT) held the event at the Park Lane site where they welcomed people on to the second floor of Mill Two which has been fully let and will be home to a range of sports.

Visitors will be able to enjoy bowling, table tennis, archery, cheerleading and community meeting facilities.

Business people whose companies will be moving into Mill Two were in attendance.

They included Tommy Holland of Centurion Fitness, Tom Dalton from Leigh Hackspace, Lydia Gough of Gemstone Cheerleading and Eileen Higham from Leigh Spinners Archery.

Leigh MP Jo Platt and director of economy at Wigan Council, Rebecca Heron, went to the event as well.

A crowdfunding appeal launched by the trust is ongoing to raise £23,000 to carry out temporary roof repairs on Mill One.

Anyone interested in raising money for the mill are invited to attend the site on Saturday mornings, email or send a message on Leigh Spinners Mill's Facebook page.
