Radstock Co-op supports the Miners Reunion Lunch
We once again, provided much of the food and drink for the Annual Miners' Reunion Luncheon held at Radstock Museum on 2nd September. The event was attended by Michael Eavis, President of the Somerset Miners' Welfare Trust (and also Founder of Glastonbury Festival) and the Society's President, Graham Jeffery.
Our local suppliers, Lye Cross Farm, generously supplied the cheese for the Ploughman's lunch.
The event was attended by many retired local miners who served down the pits in the Somerset coalfield until their closure several decades ago.
The Society is proud of its mining heritage and was pivotal to the mining community from as far back as the 1860s when The Society was first formed.
