Last Month’s Meeting


Jim_DaviesTwo years after enthralling us with his account of the history of the East Kent Coalfield Jim Davies returned to continue his account. Using slides and archive footage Jim held our interest for the full 45 minutes. For those of us who have lived in the area for a long time it was interesting to see familiar faces, but as very young men.Those of us new to the area were made familiar with a piece of local history which had a great impact on our village. Jim’s personal experience as a miner together with his exhaustive and ongoing research made it a most enjoyable evening.
