Love Sketty Week – 20th – 26th September 2021

Swansea and Neath Port Talbot are made up of dozens of local communities. Each one special and Sketty is no different. We wish to celebrate these communities. To look at their history, local walks, pubs, sports teams, scenery, people and what makes each one such a special place to live.

Each community is unique. So, each week, we wish to look at a different local community and celebrate what it has.  

Monday 20th September will be the beginning of our ‘Love Sketty Week’. Where we will concentrate on all things Sketty.
