Residents of Ethel Street in Neath say it's a 'really wonderful feeling' to have their community spirit recognised by the Duchess of Cornwall.
They have received an award for their ongoing participation in the annual Big Lunch project, which is designed to bring the community closer together.
The area we live in has some of the worst deprivation rates in Wales. Unemployment is high and there are lots of health problems. There wasn't much community spirit or pride at all - but that's all changed now.
Since we all got together in 2009 we've really transformed the atmosphere of Ethel Street. Most people now know their neighbours really well and would think nothing of popping next door for some spare milk or sugar, and elderly residents don't have to feel afraid of the young people because they know them all!
