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.

    Dai Watts-Morgan should be a mentioned for thought. A hero in many aspects. Once a minor turned political activist for minors then playing the largest part in recruiting Lord Kitchener’s Rhondda Valley Pals Battalion and leading from the front in the years to come winning many awards and achieving Lt Col. After his retirement he never stopped fighting the the people. A legend lost in time. Please consider this option. Very fitting for his actions for minors and also during the 100 year anniversary of WW1.

    I think they should have some respect for the family’s and the village for the disaster that hit it. Even now all these years on people are still moaning the loss of there children or the adults lost on that tragic day

    What about Pant Glas? (the name of the children’s school in Aberfan)
