Plans for the programme of events for 2022 are underway. Subject to the current situation with the global pandemic and weather permitting, regular weekend sessions (Saturdays) should recommence in the new year.
COVID-19, Coronavirus Pandemic
Since March 2020, due to Government announcements on the emergence and spread of COVID-19, the coronavirus disease, the Friends have been following the advice of Public Health England and government regulations on social distancing, and shielding vulnerable groups, and the Friends decided it would be prudent to close the site to the general public and officially cancel open days for the immediate future.
In 2021, with the end to the National lockdown and restrictions in July, largely due to the successful initial vaccination programme, the Friends continued to review what activities can be planned to ensure volunteers and visitors remain safe.
A limited but regular series of working parties took place from Summer into Winter 2021 and online activities continued, with social media posts, Facebook and website updates. We can be contacted as per the details below (see also ‘About us’ in the menu above).
Events arranged or supported by the Friends of Hemingfield Colliery. All at the Colliery site unless otherwise indicated.The Friends own Open Days and local events are listed for the year ahead on this page, below. The Google Calendar also lists upcoming related events of potential interest provided by other groups and for which further contact details may be indicated.
