We were fortunate to have at least one volunteer event, within restrictions at the end of November.
The Friends of Ynysmeudwy Park in partnership with Coed Cymru and Pontardawe Town Council, continued their mission to plant more trees by planting the second section of hedging at Ynysmeudwy Park. The additional hedging, together with the wildflower tier, bird boxes and fruit trees that are due to be planted in 2021 will provide habitat for animals, birds, bees and other insects.
Christmas 2020 has been very difficult for many, not least our shops, cafés, restaurants and Public Houses. One way to help is for local people to stay and shop local, and to support local businesses.
To encourage people into the Town Centre this year, the Town Council worked with 'Lite' and Cenregreat to produce a beautiful Christmas Light display, on Herbert Street, High Street and at the 'Cross'. We hope this added some Festive feeling and Christmas cheer, despite the current problems.
