This year’s excellent Great Guitar Gig together with the Neath Inspired Free Parking After 10am in all the pay and display car parks in Neath Town Centre helped to significantly boost footfall in the town centre.
A comment below on Facebook from a lady in Bridgend says it all:
“We have just had a lovely day out in Neath today. Lovely stop at Cafe 46, a walk around the town centre and busy well populated market, a bit of shopping, cheap car parking and the town was bustling, friendly and local entertainment was there to watch. I would never dream of doing this in Bridgend town centre and have lived there all my life. Well done Neath 😊”
Footfall increased by 12% on Saturday and by 19.5% on Sunday compared to the previous week.
The Free Parking initiative by Neath Inspired and Neath Port Talbot Council will be carried through to all other key town centre events giving shoppers and visitors free parking on event days.
The Gig in the town Hall was a great success with world renowned Adrian Legg and Chris Buck and Gary Potter leading a packed line-up of great guitar entertainment.
Neath Inspired would like to thank members of the Neath Town Consortium, Neath Town Council and others for the immense amount of hard work that goes in to putting on a quality and successful event like this.
