I am proud to be the Town Councillor for the Tyisha ward,
Where I am proactive in changing the Tyisha ward back to where it was once was, a thriving community for families and small businesses.

***Tyisha Community Steering group. (Vision for the future) ***
One of the most important Challenges in my life is, and one I have been 100% in attendance is:- The Carmarthenshire County Councils Tyisha Community Steering group. The Plaid Administration has worked on the regeneration plan for Tyisha for over 6 years now Initiated by Jeff Owen and Winston lemon when they were councillors during last term. Seeing my ward suffer 40 years of decline with the previous administration, there is a chance now with this drive and with this PLAID administration, it's just been successfully awarded £9.3 million for this project. I am keen to see this major transformation through in all manners and ways to clean up our ward of Tyisha. The Council officers and partners are a brilliant bunch of people, dedicated to see this through with many other investments in our town. A breath of fresh air at last for this town.
Social and recreation
I love to get away in our caravan touring. (when we can) and West Wales is usually our haunt for beauty and friendship. Unable to travel distances now due to commitment with family and friends and Councillor work Sue and I love this retirement in having time and able to put something back.
