Born and raised in the village, I have spent many happy an hour with friends and family in our ‘local’. I served in the Royal Air Force for 30 years, and during that time The White Hart/Yr Hedd Gwyn was the one place I could meet up with friends when home on leave. It is where four generations of my family would choose to celebrate any important occasions.
Since returning home to live in the village it is ‘the’ place where I would meet friends to socialise and watch Wales play rugby. It is also the place where I met my partner, Emma, at the regular quiz night. We now run the local watermill, Y Felin, together and we both enjoy organising fund-raising social events to keep the White Hart ‘hwyl’ alive.
Although I retired from the Royal Air Force in 2018, I have experience in programme and project management, property management, operations, strategy and policy. I have managed multi-disciplinary teams and multi-million pound budgets and contracts for national infrastructure programmes in the UK and overseas. I have previously been a Charitable Trustee and Company Director.
I hope to bring the White Hart back to life under community ownership and save the pub for future generations. I would like to see The White Hart/Yr Hedd Gwyn retain its warm, welcoming and friendly charm; a meeting place for friends, family and visitors, where you can drink local beer and enjoy good honest food made from local ingredients.
