Community Events

What Do We Have Planned in 2020?


MCT had planned to host a VE Day picnic on May 8th, but this has been postponed due to COVID-19.


We will be hosting a family picnic in Melin Park to celebrate our community and bring people together after this challenging and difficult time that we are all facing!


We will update you with what to expect shortly.

Past Events


In 2018, the Melincryddan Events Committee produced a wonderful May Day event, thoroughly enjoyed by our community members and visitors from the surrounding areas. It was a lovely opportunity for people to meet, children to enjoy and a great day of fun for all involved.



The funds raised in the Mayday event contributed hugely to the Christmas Lights initiative, where the community of Neath were able to light up our community with the beautiful Christmas lights display. 


These events really do have a hugely positive impact on the community, the time and efforts dedicated by our volunteers really are appreciated.


Looking Forward


Here at Melin Community Trust, we really do admire the hard work and the time dedicated by our community members and would very much like to continue the tradition of community events. 


To enable this, we are now recruiting Eventeers! We are actively seeking volunteers to join our Events Committee. 


If you have good organisational skills, are dedicated and enjoy exciting challenges, please get in touch.
