IN THE NAME OF:"

The first entry at position No. 3 is "THE CHILDREN OF ABERFAN 1966" this gives a clue as to why a councillor from south Wales performed the opening ceremony.

At around 9:15 am on 21 October 1966 there was a catastrophic collapse of a colliery spoil tip in the village of Aberfan near Merthyr Tydfil. The spoil slipped down the hillside and onto the Pantglas area of the village. The main building hit was the Pantglas Junior School and 109 pupils and 5 teachers were killed. (visit link)
