Minnie Pit Disaster Centenary — Public Meeting on Saturday 10th December from 11.00 am until 1.00 pm

There will be a Public Meeting at Halmer End Methodist Church on Saturday 10th December 2016 from 11.00 am until 1.00 pm to prepare for the Centenary of the disaster.

Groups of people with an interest in this event have been working over many months to prepare for the centenary of this disaster so that the memory of all that happened on that cold winter's day of 12th January 1918 will never be forgotten. Over the last few weeks various groups of people have met together to prepare for the Centenary.

On Saturday 10th December there will be an opportunity for members of the public and representatives from all voluntary groups in the Audley Parish to hear what the ideas are with a presentation by Sue Moffat from the New Vic Theatre. After the presentation group representatives and members of the public will be invited to engage in a forum to discuss ways in which their group might like to be involved in this project.

There is great interest in this disaster and this centenary will be followed over a wide area of the UK and beyond so this is your opportunity to play a part in ensuring that the memory of the miners is kept alive.

If you have any questions about this meeting you can contact David Rowley at Halmer End Methodist Church.

We are grateful to the staff of William Riley and Sons of Halmer End for granting us permission for all visitors to the Church for this event to use their car park to reduce congestion in the village. Access to the car park is just above the Post Office and Store going up the High Street towards Alsagers Bank. We do ask that all visitors for this meeting please use Riley's car park.
