Stop The Press

It was decided at the AGM that our Banner would be donated to the Coal Mining Museum for England at Caphouse, Overton, near Wakefield, as it would be displayed for about six months of the year with other Mining Banners. The remaining time it would be kept in a humidity controlled environment. We have had a plastic replica made, which can be used in future, even if outdoors. The Book of Remembrance will also reside in the Mining Museum, when it, the Book of Remembrance, has been closed. We have had to make this decision as the Imperial War Museum, now housed at Duxford, no longer accepts artefacts only original papers and photographs. We have also moved to a Management Committee, this means we can carry on the business of the Association, (e.g. the Newsletters and the Book of Remembrance entries) although we still have to call an AGM and to present the Accounts of course. We are hoping to meet next year October 5th to 8th 2020, in Stratford again, as we feel it is more central for everyone.
