    Story

    We are a small mining group in Leicestershire and we have now raised the funds through Just Giving to have two plaques, 19A and 19B - Roof Fall, to be erected on the new National Mining Memorial at The Arboretum in Alrewas, Staffordshire. The dedication will take place in hopefully June / July 2021. The money for the plaques will go straight into the account of the CHAPS Organisation who are building the memorial as we speak.

    The total cost of the plaque is 2,500 pounds of which donations from Kent and North West Mining organisations have helped us secure the two plaques along with the generous donations from all who have given on the Just Giving Site

    The money will go to CHAPS who are the organisation who are building the National Mining Memorial which has also been endorsed by Sir Michael Parkinson.

    We have secured two plaques 19A and 19B which are in brass and will be placed on the memorial and be dedicated to North West, Kent, Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Warwickshire Miners, Women and Children who over the centuries worked at the local coal mines.

    There has never been a national mining memorial so that was why we wanted to have a memory to all that worked at them.

      We are really getting lots of supporters for our target and we would like to thank you all so much for donating. At present we are working closely with North West Miners Association and Elvington and Eythorne Heritage Group so they can join us in our quest to have a plaque for the National Mining Memorial which will mean so much to everyone. The photo below shows one of the many mining plaques that will be placed on the memorial. Ours is a Roof Fall and we shall be able to show you that shortly.
