Paintings in the pub

Dear Blogger

Message from Ali Tickner, Oswestry.

  Paintings in the Pub û Jon Young Art and Holly Hayward Art

New exhibition at The Keys, St Martins, 2nd û 4th October


Following on from Jon YoungÆs successful Coastal Exhibition last year, John and Vicky Smout will be hosting a second art exhibition at The Keys in St. Martins this October. To continue the commemoration of the closure of Ifton Colliery, a second artist, Holly Hayward, will also exhibit.

Jon Young will again be exhibiting a range of beautifully colourful artwork from his collections of ôPeople and Placesö, including stunning images from around the Welsh coastline.

Holly Hayward, from Hordley, whose grandfather worked at Ifton Colliery, has drawn upon her personal links to the local coal mining industry and interviews with many former miners to produce paintings with a personal touch under the theme ôThe MinerÆs Lampö. The numbers on the lamps can be traced back to their owners and the stories from the lampsÆ owners are a feature of her work, as well as the rich vivid colours of the now redundant machinery.

Everyone is welcome to the exhibition and admission is free. Jon and Holly would love as many people as possible to see the beautiful artwork. If you know ex-miners or their relatives, please spread the word about this glorious event and you are in possession of a minerÆs lamp, please bring it along and tell us about its owner.

The Keys will be open for normal daily service and meals can be booked in advance. We look forward to seeing you.

 ôPaintings in the Pubö will run from 2nd û 4th October

Drains & Gullies - cleared to discourage flooding

Dear Blogger

Message from David Shearan.


During the summer there were at least two storms that caused localised flooding. The drains were unable to cope with the volume of water, partly due to the fact that some drains had become previously silted up. There is more on this and on what has been done to resolve the problems on the Parish Council website. Follow the link below for full details
