Footfall Counting in Neath Town Centre



Starting in April this year Springboard footfall counters have been monitoring footfall in Neath Town Centre. 

The count is made on a line drawn between the corner of Holland & Barret and the corner of the Card Centre in Neath Town Square.

The count is for both way movements across the line.

The count is for one central location, however, pro rata comparisons can be made by businesses for other areas of the town.

BID Businesses that do not already receive this data should email  to be added to the emailing list

Neath Real Ale & Cider Festival – Best So Far!


Neath Real Ale and Cider Festival appeals to everyone,  family, friends for fun and laughter. The festival goers benefited from super weather to make this year’s event the best so far.

With 29 ales, 9 ciders and plenty of prosecco on offer in the town hall it was an event that everyone could enjoy. All the cafes and bars joined in the celebrations and made it a day to remember.

Free Parking allowed shoppers to participate too.

The Neath Inspired, Town Council, Neath Port Talbot Borough Council and the Wave & Swansea Sound all worked together to put on this much acclaimed event, with people travelling from Llanelli, Port Talbot, Merthyr,  Bridgend and other towns specially for the event.
