Pit concert in village

MUSICIANS are hitting the stage to raise money for a lasting memorial to a former Doncaster pit.

The Yorkshire Main Commemorative Trust has booked headlining band The Virelais, plus singers Kelly Woods and Tina Reid, to appear at the Graceholme social club in Edlington tonight.

All proceeds go towards the trust’s plans to honour Edlington’s former pit. The event starts at 7pm and tickets cost £2.50.
