There is currently an opportunity to join a group to find out more about Northumberland's fascinating coal mining history, as part of the ‘Our Places’ project run by The Common Room in Newcastle. The library of The Common Room has a wealth of historical material about the coal mines of Northumberland. You can join from the comfort of your own home in Northumberland. Course material will be sent by email, and there will be things to look at on The Common Room's website. Discussions will also take place using telephone or email for anyone who doesn’t use the internet. This adult education group is planned for Thursday afternoons, between 1:30 p.m. and 4:00 p.m., from 26th November 2020 until February 2021 (excluding Christmas holidays). The group will be led by Dr Dorothy Hamilton, who teaches local history courses for adults. There is no course fee to pay. Places are limited, so anyone interested should get in touch as soon as possible by either emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or leaving a voicemail on 0770 7481915.
