Miners Gala

I think everyone in Denaby should by now have received notice about the Denaby Main Miners Gala on Sunday 31st May 2009.  For anyone who hasn’t or any exiled Denaby-ites who may be interested this is what we’ve been told about this ‘All Day Party!’

In the Miners Welfare (Tickhill Square) – Miners Banners, film projections, Brass bands and Anne Scargill & Betty Cook of NWAPC.

On the cricket field – live bands: rock, punk funk and hip hop, DJ workshops, fairground and BBQ at the pavilion.

And in the evening Keith Thomlinson (folk musician), bingo, more live bands and a special mystery guest??

Having organised a much smaller event about 3 years ago I know a lot of work has gone into this, let’s hope the sun shines and everyone has a great day.  See you there!



Fix my Street

Regular visitors (whoever you are thankyou!) will notice one or 2 changes to the site from today.  Firstly I noticed that the ‘I’d like’ and ‘I’m offering’ pages had been up for months with no comments or otherwise so they’ve gone.  Any suggestions for new pages, post them as a comment and they’ll be considered.

One new page has appeared to make up for those removals, Fix my Street gives a link through to a really useful web application called, you guessed, Fix my Street.  Have a look and try out their application.  And even better we have our first feed.

On the right of all our pages you will see a list of problems that have been reported using Fix my Street in the Denaby and Conisbrough area (smallest area that a feed is available for).  So when you report a problem you update this site, so thanks for that too.

New pictures planned and maybe a survey or quiz too, watch this space.
