Do you know someone who would appreciate a present that will help protect the future of accessible green spaces for all?
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 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.
