I have lived in the Llantrisant area for nearly forty years. I have been married to my wife Helen for over 40 years and have two grown up children. I am a Building Surveyor with many years experience of working in local government and the building industry. I am currently on the governing board of Tonysguboriau Primary School. I have been a Councillor on Llantrisant Community Council for 2 terms and my knowledge has contributed to many successful community council projects such as The Llantrisant Boundary Menhir Stones, Traffic Calming on the Common road, signing of the Charter of Friendship with Crecy, establishing the 124 bus service via Cross Inn and Southgate and being involved with the long awaited pelican crossing at Southgate. I am also a member of Llantrisant War Memorial Committee, Llantrisant Neighbourhood Watch, and Llantrisant Horticultural Show.
