People with memories of burning coal to heat their homes are invited to be interviewed for a short film.

The National Coal Mining Museum would like to hear from people who remember having coal delivered to their homes for the summer exhibition Hidden Lives of the Coal Trade.

Outwood Community Video Group is producing the film and interviews will be held at the museum, on New Road, Overton, in April.

The museum is also looking for clothing worn by coal men, including gloves, aprons and leather backings, as well as hessian or jute coal sacks.

To take part in the exhibition or to donate clothing, call Anne Bradley on 01924 848806 or e-mail by March 29.
