Backworth Miners' Welfare



The Welfare is currently looking for funding to help renovate the Ladies Locker Rooms. Although the Ladies' Section have endeavored to improve these facilities there is still a lot of work to do. The Trustees are seeking the views of both members and the local community regarding this matter and any other improvements they would like to see to the Hall and the Grounds of the welfare.
