New website for Durham Miners Gala

The Durham Miners Association has now set up a website to encourage financial support for the Durham Miners Gala. http://www.durhamminers.org The site says: "Our Gala which was first held 142 years ago is the biggest celebration of trade union and community values in Britain today. It is an inspiration to all who participate and I am sure you will agree it must continue. Since our coalfield was finally destroyed 20 years ago by a vengeful Tory government we have had no regular subscription to our funds from working miners."
