Christmas Parade in Neath as Santa comes to town
Mike Davies, our camera man, reports on the arrival of Father Christmas in Neath on his own page - but because it was a rather special event we have also added it to this page.
Neath in festive mood
Santa Claus comes to town
It was a bitterly cold evening, and after waiting which seemed to be hours,
Santa finally arrived over the roof tops and touched down in Neath; much to the delight of the children, and their parents. There was a big all-round cheer as Santa appeared in his sleigh as he made his way through town.
The good fairy with her elf companion
Sarah Mayberry-Thomas, Audience Development Officer -Victoria Gardens had an Edwardian theme, they looked splendid in their costumes and so did the children dressed in their Edwardian clothes. A super all round team effort
there were plenty of different balloons in all shapes and sizes for the children to choose from.
Entertainment was provided in Angel square, and along with Scottish pipers, fairies and elves etc. a fireworks extravaganza ended the celebrations in the castle grounds to round off the evening of Christmas delight.
