The Old Crown,
I have lived in Pantymwyn for 36 years. I am a member of the Village Hall Committee, and ran the village Youth Club for many years. I worked in newspapers for 35 years, initially employed by the Liverpool Daily Post and Echo, in the features department, then in later years by the parent company, Trinity Mirror. When I took early retirement in 2006 I was the regional advertising manager overseeing approximately 36 papers throughout the North West. I have a degree in Psychology with Biology. My interests are rock climbing, skiing, and motor-cycling. I am married with two children who both attended Ysgol y Waun, Gwernaffield.

36 Y Waen,
I have been a community councillor since 1974, serving on Mold Rural Community Council from 1974–85 (1 year as chairman) and Gwernaffield Community Council since 1985 (chairman on three occasions). In the 1970s and 1980s I served on the Mold Alun High School Governing Body and have been a governor of Ysgol y Waun Primary School since 1980, serving as chairman from 2004-7, having previously held the office. I have also been a member of Gwernaffield Community Centre Management Committee since 1980 and am a former chairman.
In 1977 I was chairman of Gwernaffield Silver Jubilee Committee. I am also a former member of Gwernaffield Youth Club Committee, Conservation Committee and Playing Fields Committee.
I have organised charity video shows of local events for good causes, including Hope House Hospice. I was joint organiser of the historic exhibition for Gwernaffield Parish Festival in 1986, and also helped to organise the VE and VJ Year exhibition in Gwernaffield and Pantymwyn and Millennium year events in both villages.
I was a member of Topic community newspaper committee for Gwernaffield and Pantymwyn from 1984–2001 and editor from 1988 to 2001.
A journalist in Mold and Buckley from 1969-2009, my main interest is in community activities and local history. In 1993 I represented Gwernaffield Community Council at a royal garden party at Buckingham Palace and in 2006 published a pictorial history book on Mold.

Forth time of office as Chair
I am a 66 year old mother of two and grandmother of four girls, Verity, Aisha ,Mia, Holly and twin boys, Jack and George . Worked as a quality Controller and Customer Service Administrator at Montgomery Tomlinson Soft Furnishings at Broughton Chester. Now retired. I served with the Womens Royal Army Corps (WRAC) in the UK, Germany and Hong Kong, where I married in 1971, my husband Haydn who served with the Royal Welsh Fusiliers. Moved to Gwernaffield village on my own with two small children in 1976 whilst my husband finished his army service. I was made very welcome by the residents of “Y Waen”.
Got involved with village life and helped set up “Toddlers” becoming Secretary then Chairperson. As the children grew older I became involved with the playgroup, later serving on the school PTA for about seven years. As the children went to senior school I started work in the local sewing factory as the warehouse supervisor. Still keeping involved with village life and local amenities I stood on the school management committee as representative for the Youth Club, were I served both as Secretary and Chairperson for many years. Over the years I have helped organise school fetes, village carnivals, pensioner and childrens Christmas parties, lending a hand and supporting many other functions. In 2001 I represented Gwernaffield and Pantymwyn on a trip to Ghana during the village’s Millenium celebrations. I raised money and collected books etc to be sent out to Ghana for the village school children of “Okushibiade”.
Am at present on the Gwernaffield Playing Fields fundraising group, and treasure for the Gwernaffield Sunbeams Playgroup.
Each year in September I hold a Macmillan coffee morning a charity that is very close to my heart.
I try my best to help look after local interests and help wherever I can when necessary, and I am not afraid to speak my mind at council meetings if the occasion should warrant it. Hobbies: my family, reading, knitting ,swimming, and at present am researching my family tree, having gone back at present on both my paternal and maternal sides to the early 1700’s.
I am available to anyone in either Gwernaffield or Pantymwyn if you need help or information or have a complaint, I will always do my best to assist you. You can contact me either by phone or e.mail.
Professionally I am a Chartered Surveyor having worked for the Northwest Development Agency in Liverpool involved in the regeneration of the city for 20 years and finally Head of Land and Property for Merseyside until retirement in 2011. On retirement I joined the Gwernaffield Church Hall Association committee and have been Treasurer for the last 3 years during which time I project managed the improvements programme applying for grants and raising the funds to bring the hall up to modern standard. We participated in the National Gardens group in the village and opened our garden for charity every other year for nearly ten years. I am a native of Anglesey moving to Gwernaffield 15 years ago having built a house here with my wife Shirley. We have three daughters and five grandchildren. I understand Welsh but am not a fluent speaker. My interests are travelling, golf, painting, music and ballroom dancing. Although we have been in the same house our post code has just been changed so after 14 years of having a Gwernaffield address it has been changed to Pantymwyn. Living at the edge of both villages I have always thought of Gwernaffield/Pantymwyn as one community.

I moved to Flintshire in 2009, first living in Mold and then Gwernaffield since April 2016. I am a mother of one daughter, Rhiannon, and live with my partner, Melanie. I am actively involved with the Friends of Gwernaffield Playing Field and am hoping to see the park transformed into a space that not only gives the children a chance to play openly in a safe and fun space but allow them to see developing gardens and wildlife throughout the seasons.
Over the 8 years I have lived locally I have been actively involved with Pantymwyn events including the pensioners Christmas lunch when it was at the Pantymwyn hall, the Pantymwyn show both when it was in the field and latterly the Crown Inn green, Pantymwyn tea afternoons, the Gwernaffield litter pick, Gwernaffield children’s Christmas party by making and donating their reindeer food and haven given a talk to the Pantymwyn WI about self massage for arthritis.
I am a qualified holistic therapist who studied at Deeside College, Glyndwr University and with other independent therapists. In the past I have volunteered for Home Start and was involved in the running of a community group as the chair person in Liverpool for almost 10 years. Presently I volunteer for Chester Zoo, giving my time not only for the zoo, but for outbound community events run by Chester Zoo such as the upcoming wildlife event at Rhydymwyn.
I am passionate about the environment, conservation, wildlife and nature not just globally but locally. I champion the use of local produce and services and try to instil a natural, local and community focussed approach to life into my daughter. As a family we are members of the RSPB, North Wales Wildlife Trust, Chester Zoo and the Blue Planet Aquarium, and spend our time gardening, at local nature reserves, playing in local parks or with family and friends.
I look forward to my term as Community Councillor and will work hard to serve the Community
