I had a phone call from Six Bells CF this week and yesterday went down to collect a memento, one of a specially produced limited edition Miner's Check, given as a thank you for those who have helped in some way, particularly on the 50th Anniversary itself.

I'm very grateful.

The team are still very enthused about what can be achieved in our part of the valley, now that C, A and SB CF are combined.

I think we all appreciate their continuing efforts.

Thanks all !

Further addition - the service itself is at 2:30, at the Guardian.

My family were from Abertillery, my grandfathers uncle was killed in the disaster, and my grandfather, a funeral director in Abertillery at the time, was involved in many of the funerals. The family attended the service in 2010 and at the time I remember that there was a wonderful website with details of the disaster and even copies of the newspaper articles printed at the time (1960). My eldest daughters are now of an age where we have been talking to them about Grandad's Uncle Albert, and what happened that day, and I am surprised to see that the website no longer appears to be in existence. Has it been moved or has it been taken offline? I am bringing my daughters to see the memorial but am disappointed that the website which was a marvellous resource for information on the disaster as well as the erection of the Guardian, is no longer available. If anyone can provide further details on this I would be very grateful.  Gemma

Hi Gemma.

I'm guessing that it's a possible Cybertyleri project, or a volunteer one of some sort.
I've had a quick ferret around and can't hit much on Google, although Guardian's website does have a good bit of history of the Pit and of course that fateful day.

I'll have an ask around, although no doubt others will reply.

Anyway, just so you know that your request has been seen and is being looked into.
