Like the collieries and surrounding villages of Kent, people are at the heart of our new museum. If you have a story to tell, or would like to get involved with volunteering, we would love to hear from you.
Story Of The Month
“As a 9yr old child back in 1984, it’s fair to say I didn’t have much understanding of what was going on between the NCB and unions. I do however remember a year spent having dinners at the Welfare Club and the sheer sense of togetherness that came out of the community. I distinctly remember the day that TVS came to film us eating and the Xmas party that year. Some things are etched on your soul. 1984 truly will be for so many reasons.”
