I was raised in the North of England and moved to Wales 45 years ago. I worked as a design engineer until the Eighties when I went back to college as a mature student to complete my teacher training. 

After 30 years teaching entered the political arena, cumulating in serving a 5 year term as a Borough Councillor, including becoming Mayor of the county.

I'm currently retired after 20 years on the bench as a Magistrate and Family Judge. Locally I hold the position of President to the Llanharry Senior Citizens branch and am acting chair to the Llanharran branch.

John Davies will be a hard act to follow but I can assure you that I will do my best to address the issues that affect us all in this changing world and that will be at levels throughout our society.

I was brought up in the village of Llangynwyd near Maesteg where my father worked in the local paper mill. I attended Maesteg Grammar School and then University at Swansea and Nottingham.

I spent 30 years teaching science to A-Level with side lines in Special Needs, Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and union activities. I am a Chartered Biologist with additional qualifications in Chemistry, Physics and Earth Science.

I now live in Deri near Bargoed, and am Treasurer of the Darran Valley 55 Club and of the Upper Rhymney Valley Area Association. Outside of the organisations for retired people, I am also Treasurer of the South Wales Branch of the Society of Biology. I am a volunteer with a Credit Union, a School Governor and Secretary of my local Resident's Association.

My other interests include dogs, natural history, opera, steam trains and caravanning.
