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.
