Minnie Pit Remembrance Weekend

This weekend there will be a series of events at Halmerend Methodist Chapel to remember the men who died in the Minnie Pit Disaster on 12th January 1918. We’ll be there ourselves on the Sunday 11th January with a display of Mining artefacts including items related to the Minnie Pit, along with all the other individuals and groups who’ve been invited along.  The Sunday event starts at 11am and concludes at 3pm with a short remembrance service, it should be an interesting a thought provoking day.
