This fountain was erected as a tribute// to the officials and workman // of the Maindy and Eastern Pentre // Tynybedw and Gelli Collieries, // who by their labour and toil did long sustain // the life and dignity of this community // also to hold in rememberance those // who gave their lives in the two world wars. // "They builded better than they knew" // Trwy eu llafur a'u haberth hwy // y cawsom ni yr etifeddiaeth deg hon.
