Durham Miners’ Gala 2015 – 2018
The Durham Miners’ Association (DMA) required assistance in connection with the organisation of the above events, which involved a parade, road closures, a number of high profile speakers, the anticipated attendance of a large number of people, trade stalls, hospitality tents and amusements. Liaison was required with the local authority, police and emergency services, and the Safety Advisory Group to secure the safe delivery of the events. Significant attention was required to health and safety issues, licensing, road closures and crowd management. Support was provided to enable the DMA to satisfy the requirements of the various bodies involved and the events turned out to be outstanding successes with significant public attendance.
The Durham Miner’s Association was incorporated on 22 November 2017.
It has been a great privilege to serve the miners and be part of the growth and consolidation of the Annual Gala since first being asked to assist by Dave Hopper the late General Secretary of the DMA in May 2015 Now the foundations have been laid for the future organisation of the event it is time to move on and assist others who may need my services.
All good wishes are extended to the Durham Miners for the future success of the Annual Gala.
