    I am considering a reunion party at the welfare (as was).
    Do you have a contact list of ex-miners?

    Hello Martin

    I’m afraid not. It may be worth contacting the mining trade unions, UDM and NUM in Notts, but they may be unable to let you have details because of data protection issues. Also Notts Miners Pensions have details but there would be data protection issues. However, they may send an information flyer out to people on the different pit pension registers.

About this Sponsor

The MuBu Coalmining Project took place from April 2010 to the end of March 2012.  The remit was two-fold - firstly to see how the once vast coalmining industry in the East Midlands was represented in the Heritage sector and secondly to bring aspects of social media to that representation. The Coal mining project was funded by Renaissance East Midlands (REM) and the Centre for Advanced Studies (CAS) at the University of Nottingham. The Bursary holder was Dr. David Amos who completed a PhD on the 1984-85 Miners Strike in the Nottinghamshire Coalfield. David is an ex miner, having worked in the deep mining coal industry at Annesley Colliery for 24 years.
