On Wednesday, the council will decide on the mayor and deputy mayor of the county borough for 2009/10. The Mayor will be inaugurated at the Princess Royal Theatre in Port Talbot on Friday 15th May.
St John the Baptist Church, Neath Abbey, will welcome the great and good of Wales next Sunday, 3rd May* at 14:30, to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Sir Samuel Thomas Evans, a great lawyer, important politician and freeman of Neath. More details from Cllr Keith Davies (firstname.lastname@example.org). (By the way, we are still interested in finding any descendants, direct or collateral, of Sir Samuel.)
Friday, 9th May, sees the start of the 8-day Neath Festival. A brochure of events is already available from council offices and the festival should feature on the council’s website nearer the day.
Finally, Asthma UK starts nine days of green-themed fundraising on Friday. I’m delighted to see that the brilliant Cerys Matthews is adding her support to the campaign with the words: “It’s not hard to imagine how very frightening it is to be unable to breathe. For younger children the feeling must be even more scary as it’s hard to understand why you can’t breathe and panic can exacerbate the situation so it’s a vicious circle. I am supporting Asthma UK’s Putting Asthma in the Limelight campaign to encourage children who suffer from asthma to get to know how best to deal with their illness and hopefully to help them avoid having attacks in the future.”
