In the autumn of 2019, we were finally able to pay off the mortgage and become the owners of the Saltmine headquarters building. The next step was seeking to raise money for a complete replacement of our extremely worn out kitchen.   We raised over £12,500 and with the office closed again, January 2021 provided an unexpected but perfect opportunity to commence the work.  

The team stripped the old kitchen out before Christmas and we took full advantage of the January sales, purchasing new kitchen cupboards and flooring along with a new cooker, hob and dishwasher. We replaced the tired beige with a beautiful sage décor, and are now the grateful owners of a brand new kitchen. As you can imagine, lunchtime and tea breaks are very important at Saltmine; the kitchen has been a huge blessing in the midst of all the restrictions and uncertainty. Thank you so much to everyone who has supported us.
