Deputy Presiding Member

Electoral Ward: Penyrheol

01792 636 923

Born and bred in Gorseinon, I was educated locally and went on to Greggs College in Swansea. I was an accounts clerk for a large grocery suppliers until my daughter was born. I then became a full-time mum and my son was born eight years later.

I returned to work when my husband, who I have been married to for 49 years, retired due to ill health. I became a kitchen assistant before going on to become cook in charge – a job I loved before an accident at work forced me to retire.

I became interested in local politics joining the Labour Party in 2003, becoming a Town Councillor in 2004 and Mayor in Gorseinon (2008-2009). Elected as a County Councillor in 2012 I am currently Chair of the Swansea Labour Group and Deputy Presiding Member for the Swansea Council. I also assist the Cabinet member for Children’s Services.

In my ward I have dealt with issues such as housing, flooding, highways, parking problems and have helped residents obtain a pedestrian crossing in Grovesend.

I serve on many committees and outside bodies such as the Mid and West Fire Authority, Western Bay Adoption Panel, and I’m a trustee for the blind and Cambrian Society for the Deaf.
