People living in the village of Aberfan, where 116 children were killed in a colliery disaster in 1966, say they're fighting for that memory to be upheld. They say that a memorial playground has been allowed to fall into disrepair, and equipment has been removed for health and safety reasons.
Following an independent inspection of the equipment in this playground, the item referred to was deemed to be dangerous and could result in injury. Consequently, in the interest of health and safety, the item had to be removed. The budget for replacement playground equipment was removed twelve years ago under a Labour Council and replacements have been funded through Biffa resources allocated to individual wards. Given the importance of play the Independent Administration has instructed officers to bring forward a report for consideration by Council.
