1. Sean Goodsir-Cullen3 Apr 2013, 10:37pm Report

Why is it that Neath Port Talbot Council spends millions on building a splendid theatre complex and then installs a website that is 'not fit for purpose'?
How is anybody to learn about the facilities so generously provided?
How can we learn about the plays, shows, concerts, and films that are available at Neath's Gwyn Hall?
Is there a competition for the worst website?
