Crown Carveries

I am signing this petition as I would like to call on Crown Carveries to change the name of the ‘Lord Tonypandy’ pub.

The Aberfan disaster killed 116 children and 28 adults, and a series of recently aired Aberfan 50th anniversary programmes has clearly shown the scandalous part Lord Tonypandy played, in his role as Secretary of State for Wales, in using the disaster appeal fund money to clean up the Aberfan tips. This was an unforgivable and cruel act against the people and community of Aberfan. 

Fifty years may have passed but feelings still run strong.  I no longer want the Rhondda to be associated with the name of Lord Tonypandy. 

Tell us what YOU think the pub should be called. Use the comments box below, and we'll run a vote to find the most popular.

    Anyone who mistreated those of Aberfan should never have their name on anything so it should be remembered, even if it is just a pub.

    I always thought George Thomas was someone to be proud of but what he done to abervan is unforgivable, the name defiantly needs to be replaced! Pantglas is a much better name ☺

    I agree we should have a name change. I suggest “The Rhondda View” a play on the word Rendezvous.
