Business leaders in Calderdale were treated to the growing success story of a Brighouse adventure centre and how it is supporting a flood charity with its latest venture.

The Rokt Climbing Centre and the Millers Bar played host to the monthly Business for Calderdale meeting.

Located in the building of the former Sugdens’ flour mill, BfC members were welcomed by director Euan Noble, who gave a tour of the centre as well as explaining about the impacts of the Boxing Day floods.

Over at the Millers bar, he introduced members to his latest concept, in conjunction with one of his co-directors Andy Whiting, pHure Liquor.

Chair of BfC, Nick Worsnop, of Chadwick Lawrence solicitors, said: “This was a fantastic event. It was obviously made all the better by having a sample of Euan’s pHure gin, but the regeneration and development that Euan and his partners have given to the old Sugden’s mill and what is now the Millers’ Bar is great to see.”

Phure Liquor has agreed to donate £5 from each bottle of gin sold to the Watermark campaign which was set up after the floods and provides a fund for any future disasters.

The chair also handed out the BfC monthly awards, held in conjunction with the Courier, to Wim Batist of BCA Group for April, Robert MacDougall of Polyframe, Halifax for June, and Eureka! Children’s museum for July.
