The Community Group hoping to save Hatfield Main Colliery Headgear have launched an e-petition. So why not sign and share.

https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/105550

Might be a sore point for some, but they do have a facebook page too:

Signed. Pity they couldn't have added a bit more info (and passion) to the petition page - it sounds a bit half-hearted considering they're asking for non-functional structures in the middle of the countryside to not be demolished. IP: 81.174.241.13

Have to agree with you on that. But can only wish them luck, but not convinced that this government will lend a sympathetic ear!

Why ? It will soon be a retail park/housing estate for immigrants. Coal is so last century
