LynEvansLyn Evans - Vice Chair

In the local Government reorganisation in 1996 I moved to Blaenau Gwent Council. I worked in the Works Department as a Management Services Officer, then into Leisure Services and became the Grounds Maintenance & Countryside Manager until my retirement in 2009. I have worked over 30 years in Local Government and I have gained valuable experience during that time.



In March 2013 I became the vice chairman of voluntary directors with Six Bells Regeneration Limited which is Social Enterprise Company based at TY Ebbw Fach in Six Bells. In December 2013 I became the Company Secretaryand I have acquired business skills which will be beneficial in carrying out the role as trustee. I am looking forward to being involved in developing and improving access for leisure, culture and community learning which will bring great benefits to the future health, and well being of the people of Blaenau Gwent. I would like to ensure the long term sustainability of Leisure Services and I am proud to serve as a trustee on the board of Aneurin Leisure

 

 

Jenny-Ames-photoJenny Ames – Community Trustee

I have had a 35-year career in the university sector, the last 8 years of which were in senior leadership positions, including as Assistant Pro Vice Chancellor (Research) at the University of South Wales. I am now based in Reading, Berkshire, where I am establishing a consultancy working at the interface between universities with business and society.

Throughout my career I have gained considerable experience working in partnership with a wide range of organisations, including the NHS, local councils, museums, charities, the private sector, and further education colleges. Enabling and encouraging people to reach their potential is important to me and mentoring and coaching colleagues is further experience I bring to Aneurin Leisure.

I have experience of leading colleagues in areas of direct relevance to the Trust, including Sport and Exercise, Public Health and Well-being, Inequalities and Disadvantage, Natural Environment, and Food.  In addition, I have a very good understanding of the types of pathway from academic research to creating an impact in society. I am excited to be able to apply my knowledge and skills to benefit Aneurin Leisure.

Donna Hardman - Employee Trustee

I started working for Gwent Libraries in 1989, in a temporary job in County Hall Cwmbran, and have worked for Libraries ever since! I worked in Gwent's Schools Library Service, and Acquisitions, before transferring to Blaenau Gwent with reorganisation in 1996. In that time, I have worked on the mobile library and Home Delivery Service, and am currently the Children's Officer, which includes responsibility for Library Services for Schools and Bookstart.

Originally from Newport, I've lived in Tredegar for 23 years, and have two daughters. In my spare time I volunteer for Kidz R Us, a performing arts centre in Tredegar. My interests include music and dance, walking and reading (of course!)
