The new Annesley NUM Branch Banner was unveiled in early January 1984 just two months before the start of the 1984-85 miners strike. 

David Amos, NUM Branch Committee members at the time, commented that the banner told a tale of his family history. Three generations of the Amos family worked at Annesley Colliery, his mothers family lived at the Butlers Lodge at Annesley Hall, his maternal Granddad was Butler at Annesley Hall and his father and mother married at Annesley All Saints Church (New Church) on 11th September 1954.
