Dear Miners’ Centre friends and visitors,

We’re looking forward to being fully open and operating with Covid rules from Tuesday 4th May.

In the meantime, we will endeavour to open for permitted outside and indoor activities; to this end we have just put up our gazebo to house some outdoor activities.

  • On Tuesday 13th April - Lisa Morgan Beauty Therapist and our Slimming World sessions are pleased to be open to the public once again.

  • From 24th April - our first children’s ‘Let’s Grow Together’ project will be up and running.

  • We will also be running regular Gardening Club working parties throughout the spring and summer.  


We are working hard to bring back as many activities as we can to support early years, children, youth and older people – many of which will depend on Covid rules and the weather. We know there is a lot of interest in bringing back Stay and Play, yoga, children’s and adult crafts and classes; and we will keep you informed of when these will be up and running at the Centre.

The following activities will stay online until such time as we can hold them in the centre (at which point some will still have an online option):

  • French, Spanish and Welsh Conversation Classes

  • Dance 50+, Fitness Dance, Seated Dance, Chair Exercises

  • Art classes, knitting group

  • Elderberries Social Club / buddy scheme


We will continue to develop further online activities and run hybrid classes from the Centre to support people who like to participate from home.  
We are also looking forward to welcoming back our volunteers and having new volunteers join us.

Our Roots

The Beeches was originally a mansion owned by a wealthy mining contractor, but in a remarkable endeavor it was bought by mine workers from 29 local pits using money collected via weekly contributions from their wages.  It was bought in 1919 and they converted the mansion into a hospital and ‘The Miners’ as it became affectionately known went on to serve the healthcare needs of local people for nearly 90 years.
