700-name petition on closures

MORE than 700 people have signed a petition against access changes to a Port Talbot beach.

An online petition has been launched by members of the Save Morfa Beach (Friends of Morfa) to prevent the closure of public footpaths 92 and 93. In the first week of the petition, more than 300 people pledged their support.

Chairman Dr Charles Smith said group member Kath Nicholson, who is originally from Porthcawl but now lives in Scotland, set the petition up as she wanted to do something.

“The timing is perfect as we are told there will be an inquiry in September and the petition closes in September,” he said.

The group will be holding a quiz night at the Twelve Knights in Margam on Monday, June 25, at 8pm.
