A memorial to those who were killed whilst working in the coal industry has finally been unveiled in the Rhonnda Valley. Hundreds of people marched through Maerdy today to pay their respects to those miners who died in the 1885 colliery disaster.
The Bwlch and Maerdy Mountain Roads are closed because of snow.
The Church in Wales say they are disappointed to hear that the parishioners of the All Saints Church in Maerdy have decided not to take up their offer to take over the running of the church but say the news is understandable.
The Representative Body of the Church in Wales which owns All Saints Church say they offered to lease the building in March but are still waiting for a response. A spokeswoman added they would be willing to meet and discuss any concerns they have about the lease.
