Staff at the Apedale Heritage Centre are arranging a Mining Gala on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th June 2013.
To date representatives from the Mines Rescue service, Winsford Salt Mine, North Wales Miners Association Trust, CISWO, the Friends of Chatterley Whitfield and others have agreed to attend.
As well as the mining museum there will be mine tours operated by the volunteers at Apedale, train rides on the Apedale Valley Railway, a funfair and entertainment (possibly the Florence silver band and a choir).
The organisers are keen for other mining heritage groups to attend. If you or your group would be interested then please contact:
Les Mason 07837 225790 or Dave Rushton 07980 961744 (leave a message if no answer)
or email to firstname.lastname@example.org
