|Office||Vice-Chair, Strategy and Corporate Projects Committee|
|Committee||Economy and Environment, Strategy and Corporate Projects|
I was born in Newtown, and have lived in Newtown & Montgomeryshire for all of my life and currently live with my family in the Llanllwchaiarn North ward. I went to the Welsh unit at Hafren Primary school, and all of my children were educated at Penygloddfa Primary School and Newtown High School.
I currently work part time as a book-keeper & office administrator for a small, local firm, but I have also always been a keen volunteer. Over the years I have ran various children’s groups, including the Friends of Penygloddfa School, worked for Barnardo’s, still help run Maldwyn Netball Club, a local netball club for children & adults, and am Treasurer of Northside Community Hall.
Mainly I am very passionate about Newtown – its history, its people, and its future. I have joined the town council to be a part of making this town a great place for people to live in, work and visit.

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.

However, this Council does require that all councillors undertake Code of Conduct training within six months of taking office and encourages all councillors to take advantage of training offered by organisations operating in the local council sector.
