Christmas crackers kick off holidays
CHRISTMAS has truly arrived in two Neath Port Talbot communities.
Festive events have been held in Melin and in Cwmavon.
In Melin, Santa joined the crowds in Bowen Street in Melincryddan to watch deputy mayor of Neath, Mark Fisher, flick the switch for the Christmas lights.
The occasion took place outside of the Melin Advice Centre, with staff members dressing in festive Christmas outfits.
