Rossington Miners’ Welfare has been transformed into a beautiful place to hold any sort of function, but particularly to tie the knot, with everything on hand to plan for that

perfect day, and a wedding fair is being held this weekend to show off to bride and grooms-to be what is on offer.

Over Saturday and Sunday, July 10 and 11, the venue will open its doors and is inviting everyone to go along and see just why it is THE place to get married.
