The Lord Mayor of Leeds to visit St Aidan’s

We are pleased to welcome the Lord Mayor of Leeds, Councillor Eileen Taylor, to our next Dragline Open Day, on Saturday, 15th June.

Leeds has a special connection with Open Cast Mining, being the birthplace of Albert Braithwaite, M.P., who was a keen advocate of Open Cast Mining during and after the Second World War.

His father, also bearing the name Albert, had been the Lord Mayor of Leeds in 1921.
