Local MP Peter Hain was at Neath railway station on Monday morning to wish British Paralympian David Anthony on his way to the Paralympic Games in London. David, from Tonna, is the only Welsh member of Team GB’s Wheelchair Rugby squad.
Peter said, ‘Everyone, from his family to friends and the community are immensely proud of David and what he has achieved. Just as the nation was gripped with Olympic fever at the beginning of the month we are about to be gripped by Paralypmic fever and we will all be supporting David in his quest for a medal and who knows we may even be painting one of Neath’s postboxes gold. Good luck David.’
