Miners Hall Hosts Successful Chinese Auction

It was leap year day and the 2nd annual Chinese Auction was held in the Welfare Hall in aid of the Restoration Fund that’s ongoing to save Resolven Miners Welfare Hall.


Thanks to the generosity of those who donated new and nearly new items to be auctioned, and the equally generous people who turned up on the day to bid for them, £503.38 was donated to the fund.

Volunteers Beverley Healey, Glenda Keane, Jessica Day, Amelia Lane, Amelia Llewellyn, Kyla Collard and Aleri Herring worked tirelessly setting up , carrying tea and cakes to those who attended , selling tickets , distributing winning prizes and generally ensuring everyone had a good time along with the staff and committee. It needs to be said that although the Welfare is looking tired, the people who frequent the old place are vibrant and enthusiastic and generous with their time as well as donations.
