I went to Hafren Primary, Newtown High School and Coleg Powys before completing a HND course at Aberystwyth University.

I work at Cultivate; a Co-op based in Newtown and that runs a Community Garden and shop. In addition, I run my own market garden near Kerry, growing vegetables for the local market.

I’m especially interested in the regeneration of Newtown, promoting the use of our parks, greater sustainability and care for the environment including reducing the amount of litter in the town.

I believe that by working together we can make Newtown a successful place to live, learn, work and visit.
