My First Day at the Lady
Published 5th December. A glimpse of Bonnyrigg in the 50’s and the first day at work for a 15 year old refugee. Written by Bonnyrigg resident Bill Taylor. Available at the Mining Museum Newtongrange. All proceeds from the sale of the book will go to the preservation of the Scottish Mining Museum.

I went to the Mining Museum to buy Bill Taylors book. I felt very humble reading it. Bill many thanks for writing your book. I thoroughly enjoyed it. To anyone with a mining background this book is a must read. The miners were hard working people and Bill would be too. How community feeling was destroyed along with the mines.
