The First Minister of Wales has today announced that Neath Town Hall will host a Carwyn Connect event on Monday 25 January.

The Carwyn Connect events, which have taken place across Wales, give people the opportunity to ask the First Minister questions, face to face, on any issues which affect them or their local community.

The session in Neath will take place between 6pm and 7.30pm at Neath Town Hall [1-2 Church Place, Neath Port Talbot SA11 3LL].

The event is free but people are encouraged to register their interest in attending online via

You can ask your questions in a number of ways.  You can submit your question when you arrive at the venue, doors open at 5.30pm; in advance via email on or via Twitter using @fmwales with the hashtag #carwynconnect.

Speaking ahead of the event Carwyn Jones said:

“I’ve travelled all over Wales, meeting some fantastic people, taking questions on a huge variety of topics.

“It’s been great to see how popular these Carwyn Connect events have been and I’m sure Neath will be no different. So come along and get involved. I look forward to seeing you there.”

Can YOU Help?

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the West Wales Chronicle than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The West Wales Chronicle’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support the Chronicle – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
