Briton Ferry Town Council would like to recognise National Volunteer Week 1-7th June 2020 by thanking all the volunteers in Briton Ferry. There are many groups and individuals within our town who give their time freely and make a difference to others week in week out. For most, the volunteering has continued during the Covid19 pandemic. Pictures will be added of the groups and individuals throughout the week as they become available.
