Help track down owner of Briton Ferry land

A PARCEL of land in Briton Ferry is causing a bit of a stir - because nobody knows who owns it.

Pauline Barber and partner Pat Darracott tried to track the owner of the road leading up to Briton Ferry Football Club, in a bid to get it repaired.

But they have hit a brick wall - and need the owner to come forward.

The pair are aiming to set up a group to provide a safe community for those with Alzheimer's and dementia and say the state of the road is unsafe for those who would attend the club for the sessioons.

Me, Myself and I will be held at the Red Club twice a week - once for older people and the other for younger people with such conditions.

The road leads up to the club from Old Road, opposite Cwrt Sart school.

Ms Barber said: "There's a piece of land that leads up to the club, which is in a bad state of repair.  We're trying to find out who owns it to get permission to have it repaired.

"Initially, we thought it was the Earl of Jersey, but it's not."

Ms Barber said the pair had asked Neath Port Talbot Council about the land, but they were also unaware the owner.  

She said the charity would use their own funds for the repairs, adding: "It's got an uneven surface, it's not a suitable surface for them to use."

A spokesman for Briton Ferry Llansawel Athletic Football Club - who are sponsoring the charity by acting allowing the use of their Red Club as a venue - confirmed the land was not theirs and added they and the allotment society supported calls for the owner to come forward.

A coffee morning to raise awareness of the new charity will be held on Wednesday, August 28, from 11am to 1pm at Briton Ferry Community Centre.
