SLIDESHOW: Our photographer was at the opening of Gavin’s Mill Fairtrade Shop and Cafe

A new Fairtrade shop and cafe was officially opened by well known BBC broadcaster Sally Magnusson at Gavin’s Mill in Milngavie this Wednesday (March 1).

The iconic Milngavie landmark has been cleaned out and spruced up almost beyond recognition thanks to a band of willing volunteers.

The new venture will be run by a consortium of Milngavie local fair trade groups, which has serious ambitions for the venue in the long term, including plans to get the water wheel working again and to eventually buy the building.
