Maggie Thatcher Leads March in Dinnington!

Ex Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher turned out today with ex-miners and friends to celebrate 110 years since coal mining begun in Dinnington.

Maggie does a look 2 dimensional on the next photo though as the march set off, first to Coronation Park to remember all past miners, especially those no longer with us. In the park and throughout the march we were treated to some brilliant music by the long running colliery bandMaggie1The miners banner looked magnificent, the call for no nuclear power probably falls on less deaf ears today than in the 80s with events like Fukushima in people’s memory.Maggie3Park2Park1
