David, or Leuan as he is known to most people, is originally from a small village near Llanelli in South Wales. He arrived in Thetford after spells living in Bristol, Washington DC, Edinburgh and Inverness. He is a scientist by training and has since moved into nature conservation where he works in fundraising and communications for a Thetford-based organisation. He has been a Thetford resident for over ten years and has a child at Drake Primary School. He is a keen birdwatcher, cyclist and motorcyclist.
David said: “I really love Thetford and I am so happy to call it home. I love the river, forest and all the amazing walks nearby. I want the best for my family and in particular my son, which is why I have put myself forward as a candidate for the first time. Thetford has its challenges and I want to help address those where possible and support local residents”.
David is committed to the Thetford Labour Team manifesto ‘Unlocking Thetford’s Potential’ and would work to implement this if successfully elected.
