There has been lots going on in Cwmdu this Winter, with volunteer days and craft days for all the family. Pontardawe Town Council has subscribed to the ‘Working with Nature’ project in conjunction with Neath Port Talbot Council to improve and raise the profile of this wonderful local resource. The three year project will include specialist work on the trees and paths together with the creation of a circular walk that excludes the closed area of path and some great hands on events days for adults and kids alike.
There may even have been some cheeky reindeers in the woods over the Christmas period.
If you would like to know more about the work being carried out at Cwmdu - See the Facebook NPT Wildlife.
Our theme this year was Pantomime … And what a night it was. With a parade, our resident Dame, Brass Bands, Christmas Choirs, Fire Engine, a doggie parade, the Mayor in Del Boy’s three wheeler, balloons, fairground rides, yummy snacks and not to mention the Ukulele Band.
