Miners Memorial

As reported in the Barnsley Chronicle on 22nd March, Stephanie took part in a miners memorial in Barnsley to commemorate two miners who lost their lives in the miners' strike of 1984.

Commenting, Stephanie said:

“It was a real honour to lay a wreath at this incredibly moving memorial for David Jones and Joe Green, who sadly lost their lives on the picket line in 1984.

“We must never forget the injustices done in the miners’ strike, where the Government did all they could to break the miners and their way of life in communities like ours here in Barnsley.

“And we must always remember David and Joe, brave men standing up for their communities and their way of life, whose lives were so tragically cut short.”
