Jim's family came down from Wales many years ago and he was the last working miner in Kent. This accolade is double edged for Jim and he has become our leading Historian on Mining in Kent.
His dedication to keeping our Heritage alive is prolific.
With his wealth of knowledge and his collection of pictures, films, songs, poems and memorabilia, our Mining Heritage will be kept alive.
Jim's wife Jean, seen in the picture, has been part of this campaign for many years. There are many supporters like Jean who have helped us to succeed.
