Caerphilly Miners Centre Presented with Royal Tree

Caerphilly Miners’ Centre has been gifted a tree on behalf of the late Queen Elizabeth II through the Queen’s Green Canopy scheme.The scheme was launched to coincide with the late monarch’s Platinum Jubilee last summer, three months before her death.On February 17, the centre was presented with a weeping birch tree by the Lord- Lieutenant of Gwent, Brigadier Robert Aitken CBE and also in attendance were Mayor Liz Aldworth, Secretary of the Centre Katherine Hughes and Gwent Police and Crime Commisdioner Jeff Cuthbert. The Miners’ was chosen by the Lord-Lieutenant as one of three recipients across Gwent – a decision approved by the Queen herself before her death.

 

 

It’s been described as a “huge honour” by those connected with the centre, which is marking its centenary this year. Based at the former Caerphilly Miners’ Hospital, the Miners’ Centre reopened as a multi-use community centre in 2015 and now offers a host of leisure and educational activities.
