The winners will  be announced next week.

Our Marketing Executive, Catherine Frood said

“St Cuthberts Mill has been a part of the Wells community for hundreds of years, being a cornerstone of manufacturing in Wells. Over the past few years the mill has successfully trained a number of apprentices, who now hold permanent positions within the company. In sponsoring the Believe in Somerset awards, the company recognises that the next generation of young people are crucial for the success of long standing organisations, and wishes to celebrate and congratulate the local mentors in Somerset.”

We can’t wait to attend the dinner to see who has won our sponsored category!

'Making' numbers

Did you know that every packet or pad made at St Cuthberts Mill is traceable? Those 4 mystery digits on the back of your pad, spiral, or block, will tell us exactly when that product is made. 

The making number above, when checked on our system, tells us that the paper is Bockingford HP 300gsm (140lb). The paper was made into spirals, and the last of that paper was converted into spirals on 8/11/16. All of our makings can be traced back to when they were made, and by which member of staff!

Historic date for St Cuthberts Mill

A huge thank you to Miles Wigfield from The Reading Room Press for this wonderful letterpress print on Somerset Newsprint grey paper. Miles was one of the many visitors who visited St Cuthberts Mill along with John Purcell on the 14th September 2016. Miles personally hand split this particular sheet himself here on site. 

This date is a monumental one for St Cuthberts Mill, as it is the official date we were joined with F.I.L.A. of Italy. Thank you to Miles for commemorating this historic date for St Cuthberts Mill.
