    It is much older than most people suspect and this monument has stood proudly on the Junction of St Helens Linkway and A58 for a number of years now. ‘The Miner,’ also known as the Anderton Mining Monument, was commissioned from the sculptor Arthur Fleischman by Lord Robens, Chairman of the National Coal Board, in 1964. The sculpture was intended for Anderton House then being built in Lowton, Lancashire, as the headquarters of the North Western Division of the National Coal Board. It marked the invention of the Anderton Shearer Loader, a cutter loader machine which revolutionised the industry in the 1950s. The shearer loader was first used in 1952 at the Rushy Park seam at Ravenhead Colliery in St Helens. It was then used at Cronton Colliery in St Helens and Golborne Colliery, Leigh, Lancashire and was soon being used throughout the world. added 3 minutes later The statue is sculpted in a heroic and monumental manner, depicting a realistic bronze bust of a miner’s head, shoulders and raised arms holding a large lump of coal above head height. The miner wears a mining helmet with attached light, and his physical strength is shown by the muscles of his unclothed body. The bronze bust is set on a column divided into two equal parts by three circular discs. The upper part is formed by a steel cutting drum; the lower part is formed by a bronze-coloured spiral screw of fibreglass. The statue now stands on a high, square pedestal formed of railway sleepers standing on a railway sleeper plinth*, which is a later C20 addition. The monument is Grade II Listed

    Results are in, 2 x 1st cousins, one already known whilst th other is a mystery. 4 x 2nd cousins only 1 is in a known tree plus 180 4th cousins. So an intersting start, problem being only a couple of trees available in the main characters, so waiting to see what comes back in the messages.......... 😄

    Unfortunately that is the type of rhetoric that the LGBT+ community is trying to raise awareness of. I can see why some people may think that there is a lot of presence from the community now days, but it is not about pressing the so called ‘gay agenda’ on people it is about raising the awareness and educating people about what the community still faces in modern day society. Being gay myself, I am lucky to say that family and friends were supportive unlike some others who are ostracised from their homes and families. In regards to language used, I can understand when people take it too far in being ‘politically correct’ which is annoying even to me. One area that is more crucial though is when speaking to younger generations, it is the hardest thing to come to terms with, accepting that you are gay (or other L, G, T) and then getting the courage to tell your family. It personally took me years before I finally came out as you play out every bad scenario in your head, as you have grown up being told by society in general that it is not ‘normal’ to be anything other than in a straight relationship. I can personally say that small comments and actions from parents, which meant nothing in reality, stopped me coming out to them for years, all through fear. I know look back and think that it was completely stupid and over reacting, but until you have experienced that scenario it is hard to understand. Another aspect that pride raises awareness for is even though it may seem like society is open minded and accepting in today’s society, there is still an increasing amount of hate crimes that take place. Again unfortunately I have been victim to one only about a year ago, whilst this wasn’t physically violent, myself along with my partner had items thrown at us and comments made as well as a confrontation, all because we was holding hands in public. Many ‘normal’ straight couples take for granted the actions they are able to express in a public domain such as holding hands, a small kiss, a loving hug... many from the LGBT are too afraid of doing this in public with their partners as they don’t feel safe. It is only now when I think back that I have not held my partners hand out in public since that event occured. There are other occasions when you get the dirty looks, muttered insults and other stuff, this is what becomes the ‘norm’ for life as a gay person which you just learn to ignore and deal with, although no one in society should have to just put up with constant derogatory words and actions. Whether this is sexuality, religion, origin or anything. I hope that me telling my story has given an insight to why pride celebrations are still relevant in today’s society and why it is becoming more prominent that towns and places are showing their support. Everyone is entitled to their opinions and that shouldn’t be changed it’s what makes us individuals, all we should ask from each other is courtesy and respect to gain a greater understanding of different perspectives. Just a quick point for anyone who is straight and supports the LGBT community their is actually a flag for you! We don’t leave no one out, you can check it out attached Apologies for the really long post, but hope you can take an alternative perspective on the matter.
