We will be in Logan Parish Church Hall on Monday 7th March, between 11am – 3pm.

If you or your family lived in the miner’s rows in Lugar or the surrounding areas please come along and record your memories with us. Even if it is a short story your granny used to tell, we are looking for all these stories to build a picture of what life with like in these lost mining communities in the early to mid-twentieth century.

There will be tea/coffee and refreshments. So come see ourselves and the lovely people from the Lugar Heritage Centre at Logan to find out what we are up to.
