Cyril Anderson


Electoral Ward: Townhill

01792 636 923

I am 61 years old, currently living in Manselton with my wife Rowena. I was born in Mount Pleasant Hospital Swansea and am one of six children.

I went to St Joseph’s Catholic school in Waun Wen from the age of five and was then one of the first pupils of Bishop Vaughan Comprehensive School which opened in 1966.

After leaving school at 14 in 1969 I started work with a local abattoir, Elias Thomas & Sons, where I served my apprenticeship as a butcher’s cutter.

Because of my love of driving I then went for my heavy goods licence became a long-distance lorry driver up to the age of 50.

In 1990 I decided  to become a local Taxi Driver, and started getting interested in local issues when representing Swansea Taxi drivers through the Rail Maritime & Transport union.

I was encouraged by my branch secretary Ken Thomas to join the Labour Party. I became very active in our neighbouring ward in Cwmbwrla and in 2015 I was asked by Cllr David Hopkins  if would I like to represent the people of Townhill.

Over the past 12 months I have had the privilege of being elected by the people of Townhill Ward and have had much success with the help and guidance of my two other ward colleagues Cllr Hopkins and Cllr Lesley Walton.
