Zoom meeting on 9 March 2021

After another hugely successful February Zoom meeting, in March we have Anthony Annakin Smith giving us the low down on the Neston Collieries.

What was life like for the miners and their families at Neston? From when the first colliery opened in 1759 to when they closed in 1927, what were conditions like down the pits. Attitudes to a healthy and safe working environment were vastly different to what we have today. Were they really the “good old days”?

I should like to thank all those who have contributed to our meeting costs. This has really made a difference. So thank you very much. If anyone would still like to contribute, payments can be made directly using our BACS sort code 09-01-29, account 26685458.

So do join us in March. To express an interest you can contact the Society on


As before I will initially send out an acknowledgement and then nearer the time send a Zoom link together with the meeting ID and password so that you can join the meeting.

I will also send out a reminder in advance of the meeting.
