We moved to the village with our three boys just over a year ago, but I have had an association with the village for many years. My parents owned a house in the village in the 1980’s and I spent many days playing in the abbey ruins as a child.

I was brought up in the small village of Brongest outside Newcastle Emlyn and attended Ysgol Dyffryn Teifi in Llandysul. When I was growing up Brongest had already lost a lot of its amenities and with no local pub there was not a natural focal point for the local community.

I’m keen that as my children grow they are able to meet friends, socialise and enjoy a wide variety of community events at the White Hart Inn. Thats why we brought them each a share.

I am the current chairman of St Dogmaels Junior FC and a Local Authority Governor for Ysgol Uwchradd Aberteifi. I have previously been a Governor and Chair of Audit at the College of West Anglia.

I currently work as Quality and Supply Chain Director for a large independent metal printing business but have spent the first 20 years of my career in Operations Management running production facilities across the UK.

I’m also a qualified building surveyor.

It is a privilege to be involved with the WHCI project, I am convinced it will become a successful community venture and will benefit the village for many years to come.
