Neil has lived in Barry since 1979 with his wife Anne and their two now grown-up children, who were both educated in local schools.
Neil worked as a Principal Trading Standards Officer in South Glamorgan and Cardiff City Councils until he took early retirement in 2002.
Neil works locally with resident and housing groups as well as with the local police. Neil believes that residents' views should be taken into account when decisions are made and he is happy to help everyone who has a problem, and is always available when needed. Neil's greatest annoyance is the fly tipping that occurs in the area.
Therefore Neil, wherever possible, checks the ward for flytipping and is very active in trying to clean up the area when needed. However, he does ask for the help of residents to report flytipping when they see a problem that he might have missed, especially where it is off the beaten track and in alleyways, especially those with alleygates where access is not always possible. Neil hopes everyone will help in eliminating this serious and very annoying problem.
Neil also urges residents to set up resident groups and neighbourhood watch schemes, and would be very happy to help them achieve this if they need his help.
Neil therefore hopes that Cadoc, Barry and the Vale can be safe places to live, work and bring up a family and believes that this can be achieved if we all work together as a community.
Neil and Anne, the Labour councillors for Cadoc, are available at all times if constituents require help and assistance and they can be contacted by letter, telephone and email as listed.
