Notts NUM Ex and Retired Miners Association
Launch of appeal to raise £250,000 for Mansfield’s Mining Museum
By Ann Donlan
“Loyal to the Last”
In 1985 the Courts took away all the property and assets of the Notts NUM. Since that time, and whilst working on a shoe string, we have continued to represent loyal NUM men and their families. With the support of our local MP, Sir Alan Meale, and O H Parsons, Solicitors we have provided on-going advice and support service.
In 2005 we set up the Notts NUM Ex and Retired Miners Association which continues to provide a service for ex and retired NUM members.
“Appeal to set up Mansfield’s Mining Museum”
Nottinghamshire NUM’s ‘Loyal to the Last’*, men and women, together with their families are asking for your help to set up a museum that:
- educates local children about their coalmining history
- tells the story of Notts NUM ‘s ‘Loyal to the Last’ as it unfolded through 1984/85
HELP US RAISE £250,000 for our Museum!
Come along and see us at the Durham Miners Gala where we will have a stall in the Big Tent!
For information about our work with local schools see Mining Memories Roadshows on our main menu.
