1 Mill Street Yearbook 2022
As this year draws to a close it’s time to celebrate the class of 2022 at 1MS. And what a year it’s been.
I write this in a post-Christmas-party haze, still high from the thumping feel-good sounds of The Chris Wilkinson Band and full of the delicious treats laid out in abundance from the 1MS kitchen. As Dickens would say, it was the best of times, it was the…well simply just the best. But, to move forward to 2023, first we must go back…
On a chilly January morning at the start of 2022 Nigel, Dessie and the team sat down together to decide on what would make this year at 1 Mill Street one to remember – and boy did they deliver.
First on the agenda was opening up the warm embrace of Leamington’s premier coworking space to some friendly, furry companions. That’s right, as of Jan 2022 1MS officially became a dog-friendly space. Man’s best friend was allowed over the threshold and into the hub of activity at Mill Street. No more would people have to leave their lovable canines at home and pooches were welcomed with open arms into the coffeehouse and bar. It’s safe to say, it’s been a big hit.
Next came the international month of luuurve and what better way to mark it than with a little bit of magic. A surprise appearance from Bradford’s finest export, Dynamo had 1MS abuzz thanks to his mind-bending tricks and illusions – leaving members speechless and in awe. Proving that magic really is worth believing in.
March is the month we celebrate women, and with the marking of international Women’s Day, 1 Mill Street hosted the launch of its first female-led networking event in the form of The Bean Over forty women joined, which was not only made up of 1MS members but also guests from Leamington’s wider community. All coming together for a women+ focused coffee club meeting that aims to create a safe, innovative space for women in the area. And if you missed it? You can quell your FOMO by joining these fearless females on the first Tuesday of every month right here at 1MS.
