Pin the Pits is a campaign to mark coal mining on Ordnance Survey Maps. Included as a feature of the U.K's landscape, coalmines will be given the same status as Roman Forts and Stately Homes. The campaign is a tribute to the communities the served this heroic industry and propelled the U.K from being a small rural kingdom into an empire that stretched out across the globe.

Pin the Pits will show 3 short films at Conisbrough Library before going off to the Houses of parliament the following month. There we will lobby MP’s to put the mines on the maps in memory of our families and our history.

Ok, so it might sound a bit boring and you might think why bother it’s not an erotic party and why’s she’s banging on about coal again? But if you wanna see something a bit different, that's about Conisbrough and the people who fought against the police and the government, for us their future, then come down, it will be a laugh honest.

If you fancy it just bring some friends, some booze and even an old relative that might want to talk dirty (I mean talk about) coal with me. Anyway, just come hangout for a bit, otherwise it could just be the librarians and me, that wouldn’t be very cool or fun.

Come down at Conisborough Library, Old Road, Conisborough from 7-9pm. Check here for more info.

Hope very much to see you there.

What next we have a government that thinks Thatcher was the greatest leader, now you want to point out old coal mines, here Jill this was a big pit open in 1900 closed in 1990 now our house is built over it, look love it's on the map.

better still if Labour said they hated Thatcher and hated her policy and not allow her around for lunch as Brown did this week.

Honestly, do you really think anyone will be interested in what you write every day? I think you mustn't ignore this terms but, blogspot works if you're a good blogger, so I hope you can change the style. 2j3j
