  • Fairfield – approx. 1,800.
  • Cwmafan – all remaining copies
Of the 3,000 copies we retain, we distribute them in bundles in the following locations:

  • Additionally, around 1,000 of these are distributed in the Afan Valley, through schools (one given to each pupil to take home), community centres and libraries.

    If you or your business would like a bundle to give out, please email editor@porttalbotmagnet.com and we’ll add you to our list.

    If you think you should have received a copy through the door, but haven’t, please contact us. We monitor distribution and aim to rectify any errors. We are also hoping to increase our door-to-door circulation as soon as resources allow.
