Mining heritage is remembered in art

Dear Sir, — In the latest edition of the Chronicle there were two references to Biddulph’s mining heritage. 
Many of us remember when mining was the town’s major industry. We feel that it is important not to forget either it or the people who worked in it. 
Miner’s daughter, Joan Axson, has, over the years painted and drawn her memories of a childhood in the 1950s and 60s and has an exhibition of her work planned for Saturday, 23rd November. The exhibition entitled My Dad Was A Miner, will be staged by Arts At The Centre and supported by Friends of Chatterley Whitfield and Biddulph and District Genealogical and History Society.
