We were pleased to have a visit from our local Member of Parliament Sarah Dines, seen here with the water pressure engine. Clare Herbert (our Museum Manager and Project Manager for the new Mining & Quarrying Museum) took the opportunity to explain about our plans for the new Museum. Sarah has said that she would be happy to support an application to the lottery fund and to other grant bodies.

We have lots of great ideas for the new Museum and a lot of work to do to get it all sorted out. Do keep checking back on what we are doing, if you have any suggestions or can offer some funding please do get in touch with Clare.
