I retired from my position as the ADR Bay Controller in the RAF station on Anglesey to be near my daughter and granddaughter here in Newtown where I have been living for fourteen years.

I have previously been on Newtown and Llanllwchaiarn Town Council a few years back where it was a privilege to be elected as Deputy Mayor.

I enjoy being involved with community activities such as the Community Health Council, Robert Owen Museum, River Seven Custodians and Dial-a-Ride giving me the chance to meet and talk to people on their views for the future of our town.

Attendance Record

Your Council’s decisions are made at meetings of the council or its committees.  Your Councillors have a duty to attend all meetings of the Council and meetings of the Committees of which they are members, unless an absence is approved by the meeting for a stated reason, for example a council duty elsewhere or ill-health.

Note that some councillors have been required to attend more meetings than others by reason, for example, of a shorter term of office or lesser number of committees to which elected, so the reader is advised to consider both the total number and the percentage when interpreting the attendance record.
