VIDEO: Jobs news as Raceview Mill opens

Thirty people are now in employment at the site of a former mill in Broughshane and that figure could rise to 100 within the next two years.

That was the announcement made on Thursday by the new owners of Raceview Mill to coincide with it’s official opening by DETI Minister, Arlene Foster.

Sited on over 15 acres, the old woollen mill was destined for demolition when it was purchased in 2013 by local artist and landscape photographer Roy McKeown who, in the short time since, has turned the premises into a rural base for small businesses and the creative arts.
