Holywell Museum & Point of Ayr Coalmine – Mar 2020

At our Monday meeting on 2nd March members were addressed by local mining experts John Witshire & John Larner  – that is working at the Point of Ayr coalfaces for many years.

Through their labours they have moved forward from setting up the PoA path to progressing work in developing the Holywell Museum – situated in the former Kings Head Public House in the High Street of Holywell.

John W regaled the meeting with his experiences at the coalface whilst John L talked about the engineering and safety aspects of the mining industry. It is our fervent hope that the public will support this venture – the town needs innovative ideas.

A cheque presentation was made to the museum fund and a vote of thanks expressed by Rotarian Dave Roberts.

Rotarian Peter Williams – ready for work – a novelty!!!
