A new gallery, Minnie Pit Disaster Centennial, has been added to our web site for photographs taken during the Centennial Weekend. The photographs initially cover events at the Church but others can be added later for the walk and the memorial ceremony at the site of the shaft. If you have photos of any of the other village events during the Centennial Weekend and would like them including please contact David Rowley.
Photos for the Church events include:
* Friday Morning's Prayerful Remembrance in the Chapel which included the reading of all the names of the miners and the rescuer;
* Friday evening's Pie and Pea Supper and the drama 'Voices from the Past';
* Saturday's Exhibition in the hall;
* Saturday's Book Launch for the new book 'Victims of the Minnie Pit Disaster 1918 and music by the folk group';
* Sunday's Service of Commemoration.
