REPORT

West Mine to unveil Granville's plaque

18 July 2010 - Nigel Dibben

This was our opportunity to pay our respects to Granville in an environment that he would have known and enjoyed. At Granville's funeral earlier in the year, his close family said they would like to pay a visit to West Mine where some had not been for over 50 years when Granville and his father used to visit the mines. Paul arranged a visit and we also bought a plaque to commemorate Granville's life underground. The plaque was installed earlier in 2010 and then in July a trip down the mine was arranged for his family and friends.

Over 40 current and previous members of the Club and their close friends and relatives came down to the Sphinx Chamber in West Mine, some 100 feet below ground, to remember his life. The plaque was unveiled and many memories of Granville were shared. I am pleased to say that everyone got out again safely and without any real difficulty and we retired to the Wizard Tea Rooms for a cuppa. I think Maureen was very pleased to have been able to make the trip.
