Deputy Mayor – Cllr Gareth Rowlands

Gareth Rowlands

I am honoured to have represented the residents of Rhuddlan for almost 40 years at Town Councillor, including 4 years as a Denbighshire County Councillor. I have seen lot of changes in this time and how, as volunteers, our work load has increased.

Over the years I have been involved with various projects – was one of the original fund raising team for the community centre – recently involved with updating and modernising the council’s website.

Currently the Chairperson of Blodeuo Rhuddlan Bloom, with two gold awards in the Wales in Bloom competition to our name – and finalist for this year’s Britain in Bloom.

As a lifelong resident of Rhuddlan I am passionate about our town. I have extensive local and business knowledge being a retired dairy farmer and milk retail business (Rowlands Milk). I understand the needs of the residents within our town.

I’ve have had the pleasure in representing Rhuddlan as Mayor on 3 occasions, currently I’m the Deputy Mayor and although the council takes up a lot of my time I am also an active and founder member of St Asaph Rotary Club.

Since my retirement I have taken up gardening and we are almost self-sufficient in home grown produce.

I am married to Nerys and we have 4 grown up children and 6 grandchildren and I enjoy my free time with them and walking the Wales Coastal Path.
