It has been another busy week for us at Jubilee Colliery. 50 people have now volunteered their time to help us uncover Jubilee’s history.

Weekly team meetings take place on Wednesday afternoons for all the volunteers to catch up on progress.
We have been uncovering structures ready to share with visitors at our open days. The next taster day for volunteers will be Tuesday 15th July from 10.30 am – 2.30 pm so if you are keen to lend a hand please do get in touch to book on this. Our first open day is planned for Saturday 12th July. We will be running tours and family friendly activities from 1 – 3 pm so please do come and join us then!
