AROUND 700 local jobs could be created by online retail giant Amazon - after they took over a massive warehouse in Rugeley.

The US-based company, which is currently growing by 20 per cent each year, is understood to have signed a deal for the 700,000 sq ft Flair building near the town's power station.

The 40-acre site is the largest remaining speculatively built industrial shed in the UK.

Although the terms of the deal are undisclosed, Amazon is believed to have signed a 15-year lease at a rent of around £4 per sq ft.

    I am now informed that the local EX MINERS in the Rugeley Staffs area are to open a campaign, to build a memorial to their past, I am concerned that without your help this will be slow to get off the ground. The link to this is on the facebook site Ex-Miners. I have told them that I will do all I can to assist, you were once behind my association and I in the late 2000s, in the rip off of the miners pension scheme. This campaign is late in coming, and I am at last so pleased to see these lads trying to come together and keep motivated. can you assist please in publishing a meeting they are arraigning at Leahall Miners Club in Sandy Lane Rugeley for 6.0pm on the 2nd October 2011, to date I can see no such publications, and I am concerned they might fall at the first post, given they have not publicised this enough. Kind Regards Tom Christopher
