The Durham Miners Association (DMA) is calling on the help of the people of Sherburn.

The DMA is launching a new community network as part of the £7.25million regeneration of its home Redhills – Durham Miners Hall.

The network is launching in Sherburn before it is rolled out across the Durham coalfield area.

Inspired by the historic lodges of the DMA, the network aims to revitalise and promote culture and bring former mining communities together to take pride in their heritage.

The DMA is determined that the renewal of Redhills will benefit former mining communities. The new network of community lodges will consist of local people and groups who are supported by staff at Redhills to develop cultural activity in their communities. The groups will also be given access to the new facilities and resources at the Miners Hall, helping to shape the future of Redhills and ensure its activities best represent and serve its communities.

To get things started, the DMA is asking people in Sherburn to take ten minutes to complete the Sherburn Community Survey here: https://surveys.mhminsight.com/s3/Sherburn-Community-Survey-ParCoun 

If you or someone you know is unable to fill out this survey online, it can be conducted by telephone. Help with this, and any other enquiries, to 0191 3868413 or admin@redhillsdurham.org
