"Thank you for organising the day of lectures on Saturday, 19 March. It was a most interesting and helpful day for those of us who are interested in tracing our local, miner ancestors, especially those who went away to serve in the First World War. The talks were well chosen and clearly delivered, with a good range of information stalls to consult. Well done to the Library team who kept us all busy, and for the very warm welcome."
