We have had a series of large plates produced commemorating Seaham's three pits and the men who died in them.

Please note that there are very few  plates left!

3. Mayor of Seaham's Annual Civic Carol Service
Seaham's Miners Banners will be displayed at the Mayor of Seaham's  Carol Service which will take place on Wednesday 22nd December 2004 at St Hild & St Helen's Church, Dawdon.  The children of Parkside Infant School will also parade their "Banner for Today" which will be blessed by the Parish Vicar  Rev. Graham Pollock.  We are grateful to Counc. Charles Walker for agreeing to these additions to the annual service and to Rev Pollock for agreeing to bless the children's banner.
