It is in sombre mood that we remember the people of Aberfan. Those who,50 years ago, lost their lives when tip no.7 thundered into the village and killed 116 children and 28 adults. Those who survived and those who helped in the rescue operation. Also, the people of today affected by this disaster who this morning came together to commemorate and reflect 50 years on. Rung half muffled on the minor 5. The band would also like to associate this quarter peal with Andrew Giles, who organised it but was unable to ring.

This performance is linked to the event Aberfan 50 Years On
