Dragons’ Den Design Challenge

The Hillbrush Dragons spent time deliberating over some incredible presentations this year in order to choose the winning design.

Mere School Visit the Dragons at Hillbrush

For the past five years Hillbrush has participated in an annual Dragons Den design project with Mere First School. The event takes part over two mornings and starts with children ages 10 and 11, visiting the company, being given a talk about the history of the business, its products, its materials and given a tour of the facilities. In recent years the children have also had the opportunity to spend time in the Visitor Centre.

The children spent time designing some amazing projects and after much deliberation the Dragons chose their winner – The Home & Away Brush. To find out more about the design challenge, the overall winner and the event, go to the main Hillbrush news feed here.

This year we are trying something new and are inviting parents, friends and members of the public to come and look at the designs and find out more about the challenge in the Visitor Centre. The drawings will be on display for 2 weeks for everyone to see, and maybe even pick which one they think should have been the winner!

The display will be up in the Visitor Centre from Monday 8th July to Friday 19th July, so come along, have a look and decide which one is your winner!

Two on Tuesdays

We are excited to offer a new special deal: Two on Tuesdays! If you come in on a Tuesday and order a main dish from our Main menu you can have either a side dish or a dessert for free. This is a great way to take advantage of a lunch date with friends or family.
