Nominations for Council 2023
Below are the biographies council nominees 2023
I have been privileged to be Chair of the Bardsey Island Trust since the latter half of 2020 and have enjoyed working with such an excellent group of fellow trustees and staff, as well as the wider island community. I have both an in-depth practical knowledge of Enlli, having lived and worked as the warden for three years, and have since been a trustee for 4 years. In my professional work life, I am a Project Manager of a large partnership, nature recovery programme in mid-Wales which involves building relationships with organisations and local stakeholders, sourcing and securing funding income and delivering on the projects main objectives. I have completed several leadership qualifications and courses, from a Post-Graduate Certificate in Sustainable Leadership from Cardiff Met University in 2016, to more recently being one of the Clore Social Leadership cohort for Welsh social leaders in 2021/22. I am also a community councillor for my local ward of Llancynfelyn in Mid Wales. I would be honoured to continue serving as a Trustee of the Bardsey Island Trust in what is an exciting period for the Trust and Enlli as a whole.
I’ve spent the last four years on the Bardsey Island Trust Council and am keen to serve for another term. There are so many exciting projects underway and I hope to help them to fruition though my work on the Executive, Scientific and Health and Safety Committees.
I lived on Enlli for four years in the 1990s, farming and fishing from Tŷ Pellaf. Since then I have been farming in Boduan on the north side of the Llŷn peninsula. I have a broad knowledge of farming, land management and conservation, I have experience of administration and management of membership organisations and I regularly spend time on Enlli as a volunteer both for the Trust and the Observatory. I want to see Enlli thrive, it’s community consolidate and grow, and to see Enlli develop a sustainable future.
An existing trustee, seeking a further 4 year term.
