OUR AIM, in conjunction with the Community page, is to be a central hub for news, views and information for all the community websites in Neath, providing a one stop facilty for those who want a modern means of access at a time when they need it.
We wish to keep our format simple with no 'pop-ups' or other distractions - no bells and whistles - just a straight forward approach with useful information.
It should be clearly understood that there is no direct connection, implied or inferred, with the former owners of the Neath Guardian newspaper or its former staff. The aim to to pay a tribute to the work done by the former reporters, which was appreciated by many thousands of Neath residents - and also to fill a void left by the newspaper by creating a website fit for purpose.
All material is published in good faith and no responsibility is accepted for any errors or omisssions - which will be corrected when we are made aware of them.
