Lest we forget Aberfan

Lest we forget Aberfan – 49 years ago today the small village of Aberfan was devasted when a waste tip slid down the side of the mountain. At Pantglas school the children had been singing ‘all things bright and beautiful‘ at their assembly. The tipping gang at the top of the mountain saw the slide begin but could not raise the alarm because thier phone had been stolen. Down in the village everyone heard the noise but could see nothing through the fog. We recently filmed at Aberfan with S4C for Tinopolis for a new series Cymoedd Roy with Roy Noble which is why we have these photos. Be thankful for whatever you are able to do today.Screenshot 2015-10-20 10.11.11 copyScreenshot 2015-10-20 10.11.32 copy
