Please take a minute to remember the victims of the Aberfan disaster on the 21 October. That date marks the 50 th anniversary of the disaster in which 116 children and 28 adults were killed, when a coal spoil tip slipped onto the village and the local primary school. So please take a moment to remember those who lost their lives and to pay tribute to the courage and bravery of the rescue workers and to the people who survived.
