It's Blooming Beautiful in Neath.
Neath Town Councillors hoped to brighten the town this year with the installation of hanging baskets.
The project started in a February Council meeting confirming they wished to install hanging baskets and lamppost baskets around the town.
Neath Town Mayor, Cllr Mark Protheroe stated that ’70 baskets have been installed throughout the town and we have been overwhelmed with positive feedback from the public which has been tremendous. The baskets have blossomed over the summer and are a real asset and made such a difference to the appearance of the town. The Town Council continues to work in partnership with Neath Inspired Limited who are also supporting this initiative’.
Some of the baskets will need to be removed for the September Fair however as the baskets still have a few more weeks of bloom, plans have been made to relocate all the baskets throughout the town centre area.
The hanging baskets will be in place until October when the growing season comes to an end.
As the project has been such a success, Neath Town Council are committed to funding hanging baskets for 2018.
