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.
George G Tattum
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.
Cefn Bychan Rd,
Community Councillor since 1987.
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.

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
