Tonyrefail residents say they're disappointed that the annual Christmas festivities in the town have been cancelled.
The council says it's reviewing all its events due to public sector funding cuts, adding that the village has already benefited from other events held there throughout the year.
Paul Wasley is the Independent Councillor for Tonyrefail East, and he says there's "bitter disappointment" among the community.
