The team who distribute your Society publications have worked hard this week to get the latest Mining History and Newsletter to you, for three reasons:

  1. To avoid the postage increase of about 8% which is effective from Monday the 23rd of March.
  2. To effect distribution whilst we are still able to get about, and
  3. To provide you with some reading material during this difficult time!

Covid 19 (Corona virus)

For the time being upcoming PDMHS events which would put members or the general public into close proximity (e.g. Events held in the Pump Room at the museum including the EMIAC, talks and exhibitions) are cancelled or postponed.

At present 18/3/20 the Museum will remain open on the Winter working hours schedule (i.e. weekends only) however this is subject to change subject to government advice and staff availability.
