Series of drop-in events aims to help town centre businesses thrive

NEATH Port Talbot Council is holding drop-in events to give town centre business operators valuable information on grants, business support and other resources to help their ventures thrive.

The Town Centre Business Engagement events will give operators the chance of face-to-face meetings with council officers and key services such as Town Centre Support, Safer NPT and the Business and Economic Development team.

The Leader of Neath Port Talbot Council, Cllr Steve Hunt, will also be at the three events discussing the challenges faced by those running our town centre shops, cafes, pubs and other vital businesses – and the opportunities available to them for support.

The business operators will have the chance to explore various funding and grant opportunities, to receive personalised advice and explore other forms of backing available to help their businesses improve.

Event details:

  • Pontardawe – Tuesday, June 4th, 5-7pm, Pontardawe Arts Centre.
  • Port Talbot – Thursday, June 6th , 5-7pm, Princess Royal Theatre.
  • Neath – Tuesday, June 18th, 5-7pm, The Gwyn Hall.

Although the free events are being held in Pontardawe, Port Talbot and Neath, they are open to business operators from Neath Port Talbot’s other town and village centres such as Ystalyfera, Skewen, Glynneath, Cymmer, Taibach, Margam, Briton Ferry, Cymmer, Cwmavon and many others.

Council Leader Cllr Hunt said: “This initiative is part of the council’s ongoing commitment to fostering a vibrant and prosperous business community throughout Neath Port Talbot.

“We are dedicated to supporting our local businesses, ensuring they have access to the resources they need to succeed. 

“These events will be a chance for business operators to get help and advice directly from the council and our partner organisations and to provide us with feedback about the conditions facing our hard working business operators.”

Other organisations and people at the events will be the council’s Regeneration Team, Licencing, Trading Standards, Food and Health Protection, Commercial Coordinator (advertising opportunities), Safer NPT, the Business Crime Reduction Partnership and the Regional Armed Forces Covenant Officer.
