Well it’s all over. The builders were in very quickly and demolished the lot. My
recollections are many. In particular, we enjoyed the New Years Eve Dinner Dance
and would like to say “Thank You” to those who organised it. I can remember having
to queue outside to get the tickets they were so much in demand. Sadie and I had
our wedding reception there too. As a Miners Hall it saw the closure of all the pits
in County Durham. Vane Tempest was the last.
On Christmas morning I would come down with my brothers and nearly all the male side
of the family and we would have a game of snooker and a pint. Good times. Good memories.
Then there was the amateur dramatics and operatics events in the Hall. Seaham now
is short of a suitable venue. What a pity.
