Banner of the Thoresby Branch
Banners of the Nottinghamshire Area of the NUM
The banner was made to replace the original branch banner that was acquired by the UDM as a result of court action in 1985/6.
The front combines a number of ideas from branch members, who made the final decision of the whole design from a range submitted. It was made in 1990 by Carla Lane using cotton and paint and is 180 cm wide and 240 cm high. It was funded by donations from the trade union and labour movement and had its first viewing at the Thoresby Miners Welfare.
Thanks to Keith Stanley (ex-Secretary, Thoresby and latterly Honorary President, Notts Area of the NUM) for information.
