Free Christmas Car Parking in Neath


Neath Port Talbot Council will be offering free parking in Neath, Port Talbot and Pontardawe pay and display car parks from Saturday, December 15, to Tuesday, January 1 (both days inclusive).

This is an improvement on last year's offer, including an extra weekend at the start of the free parking period.

Neath Ferret to be buried at the end of the year



After nearly 11 years of activity, the Neath Ferret will be just a memory at the end of the year. Perhaps someone else will produce a similar website to highlight the needs of the community of Neath, at least we hope so.

We are proud of the fact that over 11,600 posts have been received on our Readers Letters page and that we have given the opportunity for so many readers to express their views on a wide variety of topics.

We are sure that there are some who will rejoice at the news, mainly those  in office who have been criticised by readers.  We would, however, like to think that all this has be done in good faith and has been accepted as such.

We thank all those who have helped to make the Neath Ferret a lively controversial website.






Mike Davies is a Neath Weather Watcher and is certainly trying to put Neath on the weather map.   Above is a recent picture shown on a BBC weather forecast. To see others that have appeared on television, click on the link below:

The website that upholds

FREEDOM within the law


Let's take pride in our castle

Remember that Neath was named after its castle (Castell-nedd)

Beacause we live with it we tend to take it for granted.   The Americans would love have this in the USA - if they did just imagine how they would treat it and promote it.

Is this listed Grade ii structure being looked after the way it should be?
Readers give their views in READERS LETTERS.
