New Hartley Pit Disaster Memorial Banner

Workshops begin for the New Hartley Pit Disaster Memorial Group banner project. Our Creative Director Alison Walton-Robson puts on her painting hat (that’d be a beret then?) to work with groups in/around New Hartley to collect ideas & inspiration for a commission for a new commemorative banner in the tradition of the Northumberland coalfields.
