Our new advocate in Northamptonshire and Ceredigion

Support us from £3/month

We deal with almost 1000 cases a year assisting communities, groups and individuals in protecting their local spaces and paths in all parts of England and Wales. Can you help us by joining as a member?

We have appointed Gerald Davies as our local correspondent for the old Daventry district of Northamptonshire, and five communities in Ceredigion.  It may seem a strange combination but while Gerald lives in Brixworth, about five miles north of Northampton, his heart is in mid Wales.

Gerald Davies

Gerald was raised on a farm in mid Wales and studied agricultural engineering, and then spent over 35 years in land-based education with responsibility for a large estate.  Now he is retired, but continues to support land-based colleges in the evolution of their safety culture.

He has experience of the issues in which we are involved and has worked with various government agencies.  A keen walker and hiker, Gerald spends as much time as possible in the hills, especially his native Wales.

Says Gerald: ‘I love spending time outdoors—the more remote the area the better.  I am looking forward to this opportunity to support the work of the Open Spaces Society in protecting the places I love so much.’

The five Ceredigion electoral wards are: Llangeitho, Lledrod, Melindwr, Tregaron and Ystwyth.
