COAL MINING HISTORY DAY – GET INVOLVED!

A family friendly and social occasion

 

Date: tbc

Venue: tbc

 

The group's recent November Open Meeting was a productive one with exhibitors offering support for the forthcoming anniversary event marking fifty years since the closure of the colliery. We are currently in discussion with a local venue so DATE, details and planning meeting will be announced shortly.

 

In the meantime, we would like to invite individuals, organisations and groups with interest, information or experience to showcase and man their exhibits in this community event, celebrating the rich coal mining heritage of the area as a whole and all generations who worked in the industry. It promises to be a family friendly social occasion.

 

We look forward to hearing from you.

Archivist Opportunity - History of Alveley Pit
We have an opportunity for a volunteer archivist with Alveley Mining Heritage Group.
As a fledgling group we are starting the process from scratch so this is an exciting opportunity for anyone with the skills and a little time. We are open to a volunteer job share. We have been generously offered the Education Room for our meetings at the Severn Valley Country Park and are negotiating available space for display and storage. We are an enthusiastic and friendly group and welcome active involvement. Someone with an interest in the history of Alveley pit would be particularly welcome.
Do get in touch to discuss. We look forward to hearing from you!
