New building at Indian Queens Pit to be opened on Saturday

The new community building at Indian Queens Pit will be officially opened on Saturday 13th April by Cllr Andrew Waters, the Chairman of St Enoder Parish Council.

The event will commence at 2.00 and all are welcome. There will be refreshments and the entertainment will include Indian Queens Band.

Funding for the new building has been met by grants from the Clay Country Local Action Group (£60,000), the Cornwall SITA Trust (£30,000), St Enoder Parish Council (£12,000), the former Restormel Borough Council (£4,600), as well as a large amount of local fundraising.

The Pit Association will also be launching a new publication at the event to raise more funds for ongoing improvements. I have written the 40-page A4 booklet, which will tell the story of the Pit and it features a number of historic photographs of the monument. The booklet will also include over 60 old photographs of St Enoder Parish, with much information about the history of the area. It will be priced at £6.00.

The Pit Association would be delighted to see you at the event.
