Brief repot of the “Support the Miners“ meeting which took place on 17th October at 7-30 p.m. at Baines house, Queensferry.

 

Approximately thirty people attended.  There were miners from boht North Wales pits , Point of Ayr and Bersham.  There were also four other members of the Wrecsam District Support Group,  including the Chairperson, Dennis Carter, who chaired the meeting to begin with, and Ann Hett from the Wrecsam Women’s Support Group.

 

Keith Hett, from Bersham, talked about the dispute itself. Dennis Carter explained what the Wrecsam Support Group had been doing.  The meeting decided to set up a Deeside Miners Support group,  and to meet every Monday at 7-30 p.m. in Baines House.  Three officers were nominated and accepted.  Peter Leverton as Chairperson. Janice Marks as Secretary. Martin Sprachlan as Assisstant – Secretary.

 

Several different Deeside areas were represented at the meeting and several people offered to be co-ordinators for their areas. Those present from Flint explained that they may set up a Flint Support group or join in with the Mold/Buckley one about to be set up.  It was stressed that everbody there was urged to be as involved as they were able.  It was not the intention to form a small committee which would discourage other people from being active.  The meeting in principle agreed to start door to door food collections, pub collections, street collections where possible, and anything else which proved useful and possible.  It was agreed definite prosposals would be put to the next meeting John Hall and Peter Leverton offered the use of the A.S.T.M.S. office and reosurces as a base for the Support Group and this was gladly accepted.

 

A collection raised £40 which was split equally between the two pits. 

The next meeting was agrred for 7-30p.m.   22nd October.
