Story

No such public memorial monument, inexplicably, exists or has ever existed in the village. It is high time that such a tragic event should be commemorated for all time.

    As of today Just Giving is halving its commission on future donations. Any donation made from now on to our Project will therefore be worth more to us.

It contained reproductions of the immense explosive effects of the types of bombs used by the Luftwaffe in WW2. Bombs of the exact same kind rained down upon Cwmparc, resulting in the slaughter of 27 lives, injury to several more, and unspeakable terror, shock and trauma.
