Visit Newcastle Emlyn

Traders Group

In the autumn of 2015 a group of Newcastle Emlyn businesses formed the Newcastle Emlyn Traders Group / Grwp Masnachwyr Castell Newydd Emlyn. They recognised the need to work together to promote the town, protecting both the trading and commercial interests of Newcastle Emlyn and offering a support network to members.

Notable highlights have been a number of events; producing a Town Leaflet which is regularly updated, and widely distributed in the area, introduced a town voucher scheme, produced this Visit Newcastle Emlyn website and Facebook page. They have regularly campaigned for better facilities in the town. The most notable success was working together with the Town Council, to improve the availability of toilet facilities.
