Women lead the way on Anniversary March

All smiles - women take the leadGreat day in Edlington as the community recalled the Miners' Strike of 1984-5.

The March was followed by speeches and entertainment.

Caroline Flint presented Mary Young, a canteen lady at the pit at the time, a bouquet of flowers to thank her for her role in the Edlington Women's Support Group.

Mary placed her flowers at the feet of the statue of the Edlington Collier, and then visited the Memorial Wall, which had bricks with her name on and one for her late husband.
