Comment from Jean Booth:
"Just had a look at the new heritage board on the foundry junction. A good idea , but feel it could have been a bit more informative. No mention of the community centre formally the miners welfare hall and served miners and their families for nearly 100 years. What about the Trimdon foundry of which part of the village takes its name . Then the T.M.S. Serving the area for many a year founded by local families. There are probably many other items of interest that if the public had been invited to contribute to could have been considered then condensed appropriately making this a more engaging project. The whole board is very unprofessional lacking significant information to showcase the full heritage of the village. Very disappointed."
