Welcome to Neath Town Council
Neath Town Council Mayoress Appeal - Christmas Gifts 2014
As Town Mayor and Mayoress for Neath, we are writing to you to ask for your support once again by donating a gift for the underprivileged children of Neath. The appeal received more than 100 names of children last year who would not have received a gift of any sort if it wasn't for the generosity of local business people and the general public for caring enough to support this worthy cause.
The Mayoress and I are hoping you will help us this year by providing a donation or supply new toys for children aged from birth to 14 years of age to help make their Christmas a special one this year.
All donations and gifts will be distributed to the needy children of Neath. The Mayoress and I are relying on your support and wish to thank you for all your help during the 2013 Christmas period.
Please contact Neath Town Council Offices at 10/12 Orchard Street, Neath, or ring 01639 642126

Town Mayor & Mayoress
Neath Town Council is a community council serving the centre and surrounding area.
Neath is a compact, classic market town with charm and character. The Romans established a fort in Neath in circa 75 AD and a Norman castle was built around 1100 AD. The town was awarded a historic charter in 1280 by Gilbert de Clare, Lord of the Borough, this being the first official protection of the town as a trading centre.
The historic character of the town is evident from its built environment and street patterns, a legacy of previous times. Today it is an attractive historic market town with a Victorian Market and major multiple retailers at the core of the commercial area.
Neath has excellent transport links with main line railway connections to London, Cardiff and Swansea while the M4 motorway is a short distance away. The A465 'Heads of the Valleys' trunk road passes close to the town and gives access to the Midlands and beyond. Regular bus services link the town to the surrounding valleys.
Neath also has a unique rugby heritage, the Welsh Rugby Union was inaugurated in the town's Castle Hotel in 1872, and the town's senior club is among the oldest in Wales.
