Dinnington Miners' Welfare Centre - a Memory of Dinnington.
The Miners' Welfare Centre was a Godsend to everybody. There were swings, roundabouts, and the rocking horse on the left where I spent many a happy hour when I was a boy. The hall was used by miners where they could read all the papers in the Reading Room. There were two snooker tables and card tables, and a bar selling only pop, crisps and sweets. The building is now (2009) empty and for sale. The centre also had two bowling greens, a tennis court, a football pitch and a cricket pitch with changing rooms. You could play all day on the Welfare, by yourself, without any trouble - different than it is today. Happy memories.
