High Green Miners’ Welfare Group meeting in October

On 19th October I was invited to go along to the older persons’ group at the Miners’ Welfare Hall in High Green. I went along with Judith, one of the project volunteers, to talk about the archiving project and how the members of the group could become involved. We had a very pleasant afternoon swapping stories not just about old High Green but about other parts of the parish such as Warren as well as further afieldĀ e.g.Walkley. I’ve been invited back again in November to carry on with some of the stories and to see if people are willing to take part in passing on reminiscences.
